The film is based on a book about a small island community that has leased land to a genetics firm called Intec. The Sheriff is dating the diner owner, but his old flame comes back into town. The ex-Girlfriend’s father is the mayor who is in league with Intec to breed killer mutant cockroaches. The love triangle and all other plots become moot when the roaches get loose on the townsfolk. From then on it’s pure cult, campy fun as roaches eat animals, perfectly severe limbs off of garbage men, and generally cause mayhem and destruction. Though to be honest the people seem to cause more destruction with their poor decisions than the bugs do.
Soon the cockroaches begin to evolve into hybrid creatures such as roach-cats and roach-people. If this film were made today it would be a Syfy original movie and everyone would be talking about it.
