Final project from famed movie producer William Castle is, sadly, a slapdash insect affair. Based on the book "The Hephaestus Plague" by Thomas Page, who also penned the screenplay with help from Castle, the chills start after an earthquake rocks a small community, bringing mutant roaches up from the earth. The bugs are satisfyingly disgusting, causing fire, panic, and one hysterical death on the former "Brady Bunch" set at Paramount. Aficionados of gross-out cinema will up the rating a notch, while purveyors of camp will enjoy the wooden performances by Bradford Dillman as a local professor and Joanna Miles as his wife. Lots of close-ups of scaly legs and bug guts, yet the production values are disappointingly cheapjack, a depressing reminder of far better days at the Castle horror factory. *1/2 from ****
