The film never explains much of the Applegates, Aunt Bea, or the other insect troops background story. Other then the fact that they are six-foot, super intelligent bug people, who can disguise themselves as human, it was never shown or explained about how the became this way. no mention of them being mutated by radiation or consuming toxic waste, or if their aliens from another planet, or anything that will help narrate the origin of how the Applegates came to be.

I highly recommend this film to all. For some unexplainable reason I'd call this film a mixture of Tim Burton and John Waters (although neither of them have any association with it) For instance, if you are a fan of Beetlejuice & Mars Attacks (Burton) or Cry-Baby & Serial Mom (Waters) this film is definitely up your alley. This film has the subtle strangeness of Burton and the sick humor of Waters. That's all I can really say. The movie is hilarious (as are the 4 films mentioned above) in its own twisted little way.
