So chintzy it's amusing
27 March 2005 | by (Anaheim, California) – See all my reviews

Astronauts return from far-space probe to find alien bugs have taken over Earth for ...its wood?! Goofy yet ruthlessly homicidal alien bugs are CGI or stop-motion, seldom interacting with live actors. Plot holes abound, plus unexplained motivations, yet not many loose ends. My favorite part is the hillbilly traitors helping run slave-camp sawmills

  • they are even more clueless than the alien bugs! Meanders toward a


predictable conclusion. This low-quality made-for-SciFi Channel flick's only redeeming value is the relentlessly self-effacing humor of Bruce Campbell, still typecast from "Army of Darkness", and if anything playing his role as a doctor too straight here.
