Editorial Reviews

Urban America calls on exterminators to wipe out the unwanted vermin. In BUGGED, the only unwanted vermin is the man! Sexy homemaker Devine (Priscilla K. Basque) hires a whacked-out group of "Bugbusters" to rid her house of insects. But it's not long before the bugs grow to enormous sizes, and the exterminators become the exterminated! It's up to Dave (Ronald K. Armstrong) and Steve (Jeff Lee) to combat the creatures before their friends become insect food one by one. ARACHNOPHOBIA meets BARBERSHOP in this horror comedy featuring some of the most amazing hi-tech bug effects of the past ten years! "Spike Lee should make more movies like Bugged!"

4.0 out of 5 stars Are you buggin me?! June 12, 2008
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
This film is about some exterminators who accidentally mutate crickets into giant killer bugs with their new poison gas.

This is not that bad of a movie, at least compared to other Troma films (for example: Demented Death Farm Massacre, Rockabilly Vampire, Deadly Daphne's Revenge, etc.). And you don't have to be black to like it either, I'm living proof. It's a pretty engaging feature to say the least; I let my friend borrow it once and he said that it was the 2nd worst movie he had ever seen, BUT it was the only movie I loaned him that he didn't fall asleep at (others included Evil Dead 1 & 2).

Don't expect a straight-up horror or sci-fi movie, this is a comedy (a creature-comedy). It has lots of pretty dumb jokes (my favorite kind) and dumb antics in it as well. I'm smiling right now just thinking about the cockroach art project the exterminators had to do.

If there's one thing you should learn about Troma movies, it is don't take their word for anything. Although Lloyd Kaufman did say this is the director's cut version, it's still a PG-13 movie. Also, there is an easter-egg featuring Lloyd and the movie's director (& Toxie, & Kabukiman) saying that this is a perfect movie for Halloween. Well, it's not. Scary movies are perfect for Halloween, this is perfect for a lazy day.

As with all cheesy low-budget horror movies, this shouldn't be taken seriously. This is probably the reason why a lot of people didn't like it. Just don't expect a masterpiece, have fun with it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Movie Is Missing Something February 21, 2007
Format:DVD
This is possibly the worst movie I have ever seen. I can't even give it credit for being a fun Grade B Creature Feature because it just isn't. I realize one doesn't expect great acting from these movies, but we could at least have some over-acting! The special effects weren't even laughably bad, just bad. The bugs were utterly ridiculous; I'm surprised we didn't see the hands that manipulated them in a few scenes.

I'm sure there's an audience for this movie. But not at our house.

5.0 out of 5 stars TROMA AT IT'S BEST November 13, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I bought this movie just because I'm a huge Troma fan. And i watched it that night, and could not stop laughing! The acting sucks, the dialouge is terrible, and bugs look like action figures! It has all the ingredients to a great horror flick! GO BUY THIS MOVIE RIGHT NOW!

3.0 out of 5 stars PG-13?! January 15, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Troma is my favorite movie studio. Sure most of there movies really suck but alot of them are entertaining and worth at least a look at. I was looking at this movie for awhile and during a Troma movie buying binge, I got this movie. Its PG-13 but does still have some decent gore. I hate bugs so that is probably why it was creepy for me. It was alright and one of the better Troma movies ive seen.

3.0 out of 5 stars Still Bugged After All These Years. October 26, 2002
Format:DVD
Greetings From TroMinneapolis
During the mid-ninties, Troma released several films that changed the public's perception of the company, and the company itself, for the better. Films like "Tromeo and Juliet" and "Cannibal! The Musical" went on to great commercial and critical success, and are now considered classics amongst both the indepentdent film fanatics, and the sophisticated curious lovers of cinema throughout the world. Their tremendous success shadowed three other films that appeared as coming distractions on both tapes. Those films were "Frostbiter: Wrath of the Wendigo," "Wizards of the Demon Sword," and "Bugged." Troma went all out throughout October 1996 to promote "Bugged," a thriller about exterminators who must rid a house of big disgusting insects aimed at all ages for the Halloween season, and although some embraced it, others either rejected it for not being another "Tromeo," or ignored it. Six years later, Troma releases the "Bugged" DVD, which brings up the question, "Is this Bug worth revisiting?"
The last time I viewed the film was during the summer of 2000, after seeing one of Troma's other recent DVD Re-releases "Buttcrack," a classic by all means. After an enjoyable and informative introduction by "Bugged" star Pricilla Basque, Director Ronald K. Armstrong, and Tromallah Lloyd Kaufman,(which thankfully also appears on the DVD) I was ready for another wonderfully Tromatic expierence. Boy, was I ever dissappointed.
Bear in mind, my viewing conditions wern't exactly optimum. The sound quality on VHS was TERRIBLE, the picture wasn't exactly clear, and the certain Tromatic charm that seems to come with most Troma Movies just wasn't there.
