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. Jack's even dumber brother Eamon Wald uses violence which ends up causing ... Written by KGF Vissers

A hidden menace becomes a lethal threat.
18 November 2002 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

A stressed out doctor(Thomas Calabro)changes scenery by buying a house on a small island off the coast of Maine. Upon arrival he becomes embroiled in an entomalogical epidemic of over sized cockroaches infesting the area. Pretty creepy. Not scary...just creepy. Especially watching roaches enter the human body to nest. Also in the cast are Dean Stockwell, John Savage and Kristen Dalton. This is more interesting than some may think. Not for the real squeamish.
