SRP $14.99 1.85:1(16:9) MONO PARAMOUNT
 

One of the lower budgeted sci-fi films of the ‘70s to be released recently “BUG” is actually better than its title or cast suggests. Bradford Dillman stars as an Entomologist whose attachment to bugs goes over-the-top after his wife is burned to death, coinciding with an earthquake that unleashes killer cockroaches capable of starting fires by rubbing their legs together! 

The “why” to what Dillman does, is never answered, but when Dillman elects to cross-breed this species with the Normal cockroach, the results are devastating. Considering it's one of many "nature goes crazy" types of films to come from this period, it's at least more entertaining than most of them. Sure, it's silly(a truck blows up after the bugs set a fire), but it has "good" camp humor.

The film works in spite of its premise, and remains effectively engaging up until a ridiculous finale. 

The film is presented with its correct 1.85:1 aspect ratio and 16:9 enhancement.  After a rough start, the monaural sound becomes adequate. Fidelity is consistently limited, however dialogue is generally intelligible and without distortion.
