After a construction worker is killed by insects burrowing into his brain, Sam and Dean investigate the town's history and find that the new housing development is being built on sacred Indian land. The Indians put a curse on the land after their reservation had been ravished and destroyed. Sam and Dean must find a way to survive and kill the deadly swarm of bees, locusts, spiders and beetles.

Trivia

Dean suggests that maybe the bugs are being controlled by someone. Sam says, " You mean like Willard?" "Willard" was a 1971 horror film about a social misfit who befriended and then trained a group of rats to do his bidding. See more »

Goofs

When Sam and Dean arrive at the Pike's house to warn them, Sam says that it is 12 a.m.. Right after they get attacked by bees and flee to the house's attic. The bees get in and attack everyone. And then they see the sun rise and the curse is over. In the story only a couple minutes pass between entering the house and the end of the curse. And no indication is made to more time passing. But around the spring equinox the sun rises about 7:30 a.m. in Oklahoma. Also the next day no one has any bee-stings on their faces, necks or hands (the parts that would have been exposed to the bees). See more »

Brothers against Evil: Bugs!
19 April 2007 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

Personally I loved "Supernatural" ever since the pilot, but it's still very encouraging and stimulating to see how the show gets better with each and every episode! By the time of this eighth episode, the two young brothers evolved into convincing & heroic crime battlers, the suspense increases every week, the scripts refer more and more to older horror classics and the stories provide new and creative types of supernatural menace every time! I feel like labeling every new episode I see as the best one thus far, but the truth is all episodes pretty much are of equally high quality. "Bugs" is definitely a personal favorite, as it combines the tension of supernatural horror with the old-fashioned fun of nature-revolting creature features. When two lethal accidents are caused by seemly harmless insects on a location where estate agents are building a new housing complex, it simply looks like a bizarre coincidence at first. Sam and Dean are nevertheless investigating the case, because the state of the victims' bodies indicate that the little critters weren't behaving normally when they attacked. After a third casualty died from spider bites, the brothers – together with a bug-obsessed teenager – discover that the insects are revolting against humanity because of an ancient Indian curse. This installment in Eric Kripke's fabulous show features some of the best special effects ever shown on TV. Especially the humongous swarms of bees and cockroaches are staggering. The revelation of the Indian curse is fascinating and another brilliant detail is how every episode enlightens us a little more about Sam & Dean's backgrounds. For the avid & experienced horror fans among us, there's a lovely mentioning of the classic 70's rat-shocker "Willard".
