    This movie is a great movie to watch if you are in the mood to see thousands of cockroaches crawl through peoples’ bodies and nest in them. Swarms of roaches try to take over an island and everybody on it. This movie is definitely a movie to check out. According to the DVD…. IT WILL MAKE YOUR SKIN CRAWL!

    Dr. Cahill (Thomas Calabro) is a recovering alcoholic. After being unable to perform a surgery, he is told to take a “vacation” by his superior. This leads him to a small island, where he hopes to settle in and relax. Instead, the locals, led by two brothers (one played by John Savage), cause nothing but problems for Cahill. Meanwhile, a growing legion of biting, killer cockroaches have arrived on the island, ready to destroy all in their path! Dr. Cahill, with the help of the sheriff (Dean Stockwell!) and the gal from the general store (Kristen Dalton), must find out what’s been killing the townsfolk before it’s too late. CC is a solid little grabber w/ enough twists and jolts to keep things running on all six legs. There’s even some gory goo that’s surprising for a PG-13 movie! Loved it…

    I have a fair number of horror DVDs in my library that fill the same niche as ‘Creepy Crawlers.’ Movies such as ‘The Blob,’ ‘Slither,’ ‘Splinter,” et al are all nifty horror outings that have a good mix of story, character and horror to fill their 90 minute or so running time. They won’t change your life but they’re high on the entertainment scale.

    ‘Creepy Crawlers’ involves a doctor who hasn’t quite adjusted to being on the wagon. His boss gives him time off so he goes to his recently purchased, dilapidated house on an Island off the coast of Maine, to get it up to speed. The house was a bank repo and the two brothers from whom it was repoed have real bad feelings toward him. Meanwhile, a sailor from an African ship gets tossed overboard by his mates for being a human bug hotel. His body washes ashore on the Island and the bugs do their thing.

    This is pretty high on the creep and goo scale. These bugs use animals as hosts so when the eggs hatch things get really nasty. As in other movies of this type things start a bit slow. Clues start to build and those who know what’s going on have to convince those who don’t. Meanwhile the animosities get in the way and make things even more difficult.

    The acting is generally good. John Savage, as the one brother, is way better than he even has to be in the role. Dean Stockwell is good as the sheriff but could have used a bit more time. Kristen Dalton, likewise, is good but needed more time. The effects are on par with the budget. The lighting, cinematography, editing, etc. are all good enough for the project. This is just a very watchable movie. Things get a bit rushed near the end and the climax could have been a bit more spectacular but all in all this is a fun time.
