Legendary horror writer/producer/director William Castle (The Tingler, Strait-Jacket, Rosemary's Baby) presents a creeping, crawling film nightmare that will have you screaming and squirming with fright! A massive earth tremor opens a crevasse in the California desert, releasing a plague of bizarre, fiery, foot-long cockroaches. With their numbers multiplying and the death toll mounting, obsessive entomologist James Parmiter (Bradford Dillman, Piranha, The Swarm) desperately seeks a way to eliminate the seemingly indestructible critters before they spread clear across the country ... and beyond! Joanna Miles (The Dark Secret Of Harvest Home) and Patty McCormack (The Bad Seed) are among the terrorized cast in this suspenseful screamfest directed by Jeannot Szwarc (Jaws 2).
