Dr. Cahill (Thomas Calabro) is a handsome young doctor who is developing a shaky hand. Unable to properly cut his patients open anymore, he is recommended to get away for a while. Dr. Cahill chooses Orrs Island off the coast of Maine where he expects to relax in a sleepy resort town. Upon encountering a frigid welcome from the locals, the doctor's trip then takes an even worse turn when flesh eating cockroaches from Africa invade the town. The bugs attack by finding human hosts upon which to breed and it is up to Dr. Cahill to regain his steady hand in saving this infestation from continuing. Gory special effects and expert bug wrangling highlight this thrilling bug attack picture. John Savage is featured as the town drunk.
