A small lakeside resort community is beset by roaches. Big killer roaches that reproduce in dark moist places, and can grow to 10 feet long. The local sheriff may or may not be using them as part of his land-grab scheme. The locals eventually call in an over-the-top bug exterminator to relieve themselves of their problem. Written by
Silly, ridiculous, campy fun for a poorly made, clumsy comedy.
Since no one made a review for this movie, I decided to go ahead with it. It's this story about a pesticide that makes the fishes at the idyllic Mountview town's lake give birth to roaches. I know you're laughing by now. The director's wife is here as the town doctor who communicates with former Star Trek George Takei over the phone, he plays a bug scientist of some sort. Another Star Trek survivor is James Doohan as the town sheriff. Bride of Chucky's Heigl who is terrified of bugs moves to the town with dad Kopell of Love Boat and mom Lockhart of Battlestar Gallatica (and daughter of June!) who buy a hotel by the lake. She is wooed by orphan Lipper before they witnesses several people dying gruesome deaths as the roaches and larvae burrows themselves into the corpses and lay eggs or whatever. The whole story is a bit confusing as you try to put it together. I think the pesticide causes the bugs to mutate and so the roaches just kill and stuff while their "mother bug" somehow grows to ten feet high. The special effects are lousy, the acting are okay, the direction is poor and the editing is clumsy, there are some laughably bad scenes including the "mother bug" attacking James Doohan who fail to convince us that he's being attacked (the "mother bug" was computer generated). Well the whole film was clumsy anyway. Randy Quaid adds more comic bits to the laughter quotient of the film and manages to steal each scene he's in as a bug exterminator who's ready to kick some bug ass! - as he says in his cheap commercials. It's good, giddy, silly, and ridiculous campy fun especially if this horror/comedy's poorly made and clumsy. With the rating system still not past five votes, I give mine now...it's 4 out of 10.
