Mystery Roach

It’s not nice to fool with Mother Nature. Produced (but not directed) by William Castle, Bug is one of the weirder examples of the slew of ecologically-minded 70’s horror films where nature not only points out the folly of man but strikes back with a vengeance that verges on the Biblical. An earthquake unleashes prehistoric cockroaches from the bowels of the earth who can start fires and burn you alive. Bradford Dillman (a couple of years before he fought piranhas) is Parmiter, a Biology teacher called upon to study the phenomenon…who seems to be obsessed with their mating habits. In fact, at times he has so much sympathy for the chitinous killers that one wonders if he’s playing with a full deck of flashcards…

You’re a true child of the 70’s if you recognize this kitchen.
