William Castle was a truly great showman and producer of entertaining old school horror, so it's truly sad that this terrible cinematic vermin was his last effort. An earthquake frees fire-farting, but slow-moving, cockroaches from the San Andreas fault and the worst scientist in history breeds them with common household cockroaches. This somehow results in cockroaches that are not only capable of setting things alight with their flatulence, but that can also read newspapers, spell, and formulate complex plans. This makes them much smarter than the extremely sweaty scientist (apparently nobody in this flick had access to antiperspirants) who just can't remember to keep their cage fastened shut. As a result, the cockroaches set people's heads on fire. If you love William Castle, the man who gave us such fun classics as 13 Ghosts and The Tingler, who brought clever gimmicks into theaters to get his audiences caught up in the glee he provided, do yourself a favor... avoid Bug. Despite the synopsis given here, it's not an entertaining throwback at all; it's about as enjoyable as watching cockroaches scuttle across your kitchen floor.

Saw this movie when it came out in the theaters. While it was mildly entertaining the real action was across the aisle. A man was making the move on a lady with a short skirt. She sat on the aisle he had his hand all over her leg.
