An earthquake leaves a giant crack in the middle of a town releasing a scourge of big cockroaches that have the ability to ignite from sparks generated by rubbing their legs together. Resident mad Scientist James Parmiter experiments with the bugs as they wreak havoc on the town. He eventually discovers their hidden agenda.
Yes the bugs can spell, you’d think they would use this incredible skill to do more than just state the obvious. Although this was the mid ‘70’s and things were pretty weird back then. Perhaps the bugs just needed a hug or a self-awareness group.
Pretty poor example of a bug infested horror movie overall. All those bugs running around and I didn’t even feel itchy. If your hankering for some insect horror you’d be best advised to pass by this one, it doesn’t deliver the goods.
