I was also in this movie as well, too!, 19 May 2013
Author: dalldorfw from United States

I too was in this movie! I played one of the giant cockroaches; I don't seem to have a credit here on IMDb, so I'll have to see it I can change that. I don't know if anyone else in this movie will see my review because it's a pretty obscure film, plus I ate half the cast. It was a great experience for a giant cockroach such as myself. It was basically one big buffet and the other cast members where easy prey, what with most of them being children. I hope to someday meat, err, meet the other surviving cast members for, um, a reunion and for, ummmm, nostalgic value. Yeah, that's it! Nostalgia! That's the ticket!

For those of you that are interested, my other credits include, 'The Nest', 'Mimic' and 'The Cockroach That Ate Cincinnati!'
