For all you katsaridaphobiacs out there, there is Bug, a supernatural horror thriller about mutated cockroaches that can self-ignite at will. Wait! Cockroaches that can burst into flames? Why not! It’s a pretty cool concept ludicrous enough that we keep our distances, at first, tongue-in-cheek, yet it creates fascinating situations that glue us to our seat.
Movies that antagonize bugs or animals are usually slow and big on dialogue. This one isn’t. The cockroaches are not just magical; they’re smarter than your average bug. Prepare for a series of cringeworthy moments sprinkled to keep the action going. It has the pacing of a slasher flick without being one. The creature effects are so convincing you’ll believe a cockroach can explode.
Bug will send shivers down your spine. It builds suspense from the ground up with powerful sound effects and vivid reactions from the victims. The creators sure got the cockroach to do what the script needed them to. Despite a ridiculous premise, this is a smart movie with a motivated crew and a strong cast. It is William Castle’s last contribution to a film before his death.
