Gil, (Bernie Kopell) and Cammie Griffin, (Anne Lockhart) take their daughter Shannon, (Katherine Heigl) to the Mountview Lodge, where a recent controversy over the spraying of a chemical spray is making the residents nervous. Even worse is that cockroaches are popping up everywhere, which troubles the town’s veterinarian, Laura Casey, (Brenda Doumani) when they pop up around a series of gruesome killings. After determining that the bugs are the official cause of the deaths, the town decides to call in General George, (Randy Quaid) a TV personality bug extinguisher, to help deal with the problem.  This one actually surprised me and I quite enjoyed it. The main asset to that is it’s sense of fun. It’s one of the few that strikes the hard to master task of striking a balance between being cheesy and being serious. The situations may be cheesy, but they are taken seriously, putting them into a better sense of urgency. That mixes with the cheesiness of the situations makes for some pleasant viewing.
It also moves along quite rapidly and doesn’t really get bogged down in useless subplots, making the majority of the focus on the bugs, which is what should happen in this type of movie. A must see for any Sci-Fi Fan.
