He is unsuccessful in this, and continues to be unable to keep work. His father, in his concern for him, pays some whores to deflower the lad. Alas, even this does not go well. Clearly, the boy doesn't perform well on demand. The only person who can properly initiate the lad into manhood turns out to be his aunt, whose patience and humor triumph. Written by lament

Mediocre comedy
7 August 2018 | by Bored_DragonSee all my reviews

"The Bug Killer" continues the tradition of mediocre films that try to cover up their shortcomings with good boobs. The story is lousy, but at least it's not boring, and even has a few hilarious moments. In comparison to "PTT" the acting is better, naked tits are also better, and there are more of them. Since "PTT" has already shown an explicit nudity, "The Bug Killer" has been forced to go one step further by increasing its presence on the screen and adding some really perverse moments that balance on the edge of the sick. I would recommend this to lovers of Yugoslavian cinematography only, and the rest of you better skip it.
