THE PLOT:

A quake opens a deep crack going down hundreds of miles and unleashes a strange roach from the depths. A roach that feeds on ash and has the power to start fires with a natural spark and don't care where or who they start fires on.

A scientist becomes growingly more obsessed with the tiny terrors from the Earth's core and only thinks of the insidious insects.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Kids, don't play with matches or fire starting roaches. Someone gets hurt don't you know. Enough of the silliness. The story, considering they used real insects the make up effects was impressive. The story works, it has pacing and minor character issues but on a whole it's pretty good. 8 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I liked it better then Zedd did, I think the whole concept of fire starting bugs from deep underground is clever and unique and a buried treasure. Get bugged today. 9 STARS.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ STORY (Unique.)
+ EFFECTS (Cool fire effects.)
+ MAKE UP EFFECTS (Considering they were live bugs, good make up effects.)
+ CAST (The cast does a great job.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- CHARACTER ISSUES (There are some minor character issues.)

...AND FINALLY...

- PACING (It slows down at times and has trouble getting back going.)
