Editorial Reviews

The Haskin family seeks refuge from Y2K hysteria in the isolated forests of the Sierra Diablos Mountains. Soon, however, the threat of technological shutdown is the least of their worries.

Abducted by a vicious hillbilly clan, the family battles for their lives … But neither they nor their captors could imagine the monstrous nightmare about to erupt from the bowels of the earth.

Now they must all join together if anyone is to survive!

5.0 out of 5 stars A hidden gem June 9, 2013
I am not afraid of bugs, well, except for that huge one in the hallway of my parents house when I was about 7 years old. That one was scary. Bugs make a great topic for creepy Sci-Fi movies. Over the decades we movie-goers have seen giant ants, spiders and locust just to name a few. Gargantuan bugs are pretty chilling because we tend to feel helpless around the normal size version of these critters. How do you handle one the size of a truck? That is the question in "Millennium Bug".

The story goes that every one thousand years this Buick sized bug bores its way out of the Earth to lay its eggs and die. The eggs hatch and the larva stay in the Earth for a thousand years as the cycle continues. Enter the Haskin Family. They have decided to escape all the Millennium frenzy of Dec 1999 and spend New Year's Eve camping deep in the woods of the Sierra Diablos Mountains. All is fine, battery powered Christmas lights are strung, champagne is opened and now they have bedded down for the evening. Yes all is fine until some wacky hillbillies discover their campsite. The family is kidnapped but soon discovers the hillbillies aren't their only problem as it is also time for our friend the Millennium Bug to make his grand entrance. Will they escape the clutches of this inbred clan, and if they do, can they run from the Millennium Bug too?

I LOVED this movie. It really was relatable to me and brought me back to my childhood of watching "Creature Double Feature" on Boston's channel 56 WLVI TV. I went into it thinking it would be so-so. I was wrong. It was so creatively done. I truly admire the filmmakers on this one and wish I could have been part of this project. It really connected with me. I'll break it down a bit by saying it has elements of five of my favorite movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING MOVIE!!!!!!!!! April 1, 2013
Everything about this is amazing, the effects, the lack of cgi, the MONSTER SUIT! The movie, even without the monster is really entertaining, the rednecks, although repulsive, are very entertaining and they did a great job of getting me to root for the family, once the monster shows up though, it just turns incredible! Lets hope for some sequels, or at least more movies like this.

2.0 out of 5 stars IT'S A GIRL. May 7, 2013
The Crawford family live isolated and have some inbreeding issues. They are in need of new blood. Enter the Haskin family. This is the plot of a number of "B" slasher films, some far better than others. This one adds the subplot of a Millennium monster, one that appears every 1,000 years. It just so happens his 1,000 year period corresponds to our calendar. It is a rather huge creature with big teeth and killer tentacles.

There is nothing like combining two bad films into one. This one appeared to be designed to be campy, which it achieves in spurts but mostly sputters with stupidity. The researcher wore a "Crocodile Hunter" hat and mimicked him far too slightly to be effectively funny and campy. The dialogue during the early character build up phase of the Haskin family was boring. It was simply poorly scripted.

A borderline rental.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, near sex. Groped woman. Brief nudity that was rather ugly. Christine Haeberman tied up in bra/panties.

3.0 out of 5 stars Gets at least one star for bug costume. August 19, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The characters in the film are pretty heavy handed, particularly the red neck family. In fact, tedious might be a better word for the first half of the film. But once the monster comes out, it was pretty inspired. Whoever handled the special affects is brilliant. Whoever wrote the script is second rate.

Just by looking at the front cover of this movie, you should have known it was low budget. If you thought it was going to be some awesome monster movie like Cloverfield, then your just as stupid as the plot of this movie was. This movie was exactly as it was intended to be, a GOOD AND GORY OLD FASHION MONSTER MOVIE. It was more entertaining than most of the crap that is in the movie theatres today.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't Let the Millennium Bug Bite! January 9, 2014
This is another "B-minus" movie...and I LOVED it! God awful acting, every cliche` of a character known to movie-making, the cheapest of effects (but by darn there was NO CGI!), an inbred-Jed-hoedown, a set of the ugliest boobies you'll ever see, death by dildo, and sets that 1960s Japanese Godzille movie makers would have been proud of, the Millennium Bug was a hoot from start to finish. The characters are so over-the-top, this comes off waaaay more as a comedy than it does Sci-Fi or horror. But I still had a good time. This movie doesn't try to be Grade A, but I'll take that B-minus any day of the week! Recommended.
