Storyline

Dr. Ben Cahill, a fine city doctor, gets so stressed by marital problems and alcohol that he freezes up under pressure in the emergency room. To get his act back together, he decides to unwind a few months in the house he and his ex bought on Orr island, an insignificant (former) fishermen place off the coast of Maine. He almost immediately becomes the butt of spite from a gang of local nobodies. After the doctor started examining, at the request of the reasonable sheriff Hobbs who leans to his side, some animal and human corpses with strange internal as well as external injuries, one of the brutes, not so handy handyman Jack Wald, has a fatal nocturnal accident crashing into Dr. Cahill's car. The doc observes one of the red cockroaches which recently infest the island has pincers, most unusual, reads up and contacts the university entomology department, where this African species isn't too well-known either.

A Horror Flick Set In Maine & NOT Written By Stephen King!
1 May 2003 | by (Mountain View, CA) – See all my reviews

After I got used to that concept (I thought Mr. King had copyrights on everything creepy and yucky in the state of Maine), I must say I thoroughly enjoyed this completely formulaic bug movie. This one's got it all--all the cliches, that is! You got your troubled outsider, you got your disgruntled local yokels, you got your plucky heroine who comes to the aid of the troubled outsider and stands up to the disgruntled yokels. You even got a colorful Maine codger! The best characterization is done by John Savage as a tosspot (that's King's word for a drunk, right?) with a comically thick Maine accent and a major 'tude. The story moves along at a good clip and the special effects are fun and effective. This flick is perfect for a rainy Saturday afternoon alone or to keep guests entertained at a slightly boring party. My VHS copy came with a 3D box cover that shows a picture of the hero with a normal face at one angle and a gross, bug-infested screaming face at another angle. Fun! (P.S. Also known as "Creepy Crawlers, which is the one with the 3D box)
