      Annalee Newitz io9.com Though bits of the movie feel like warmed-over hillbilly stereotypes, there's a deranged imaginativeness at its heart that will win over horror fans. May 23, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member B-Movie madness at almost its finest. Usually, when movies try to incorporate multiple elements into the climax, it doesn't fit well and makes what could have been good movies into utter crap. So I expected the same here when you have your crazy, mutated, inbred, murderous hillbilly family, and a giant only-comes-to-life-once-every-thousand-years Mothra-like monster creature thingy. Sounds terrible, I know. But it wasn't. If you're into splatterfest nonsensical B-(or worse) grade horror films, this one hits all the right notes. And they don't play it safe in terms of who survives and who doesn't. Lot of fun watching this twisted schlock. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Combines a psychotic hillbilly movie with a giant monster movie, but doesn't do either one particularly well. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Why filmed a movie in 2011 for 1999? It's like a giant flea killing people, and a bunch of hillbillies, boring and crap! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member I was rooting for the bug. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Can I get a refund from RedBox? Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Just when the Haskins think that they have escaped all of the Y2K hysteria by heading in to the hills for a family camping trip, they are kidnapped by a group of inbred hicks and prepared for some good old-fashioned hillbilly rape. Luckily for them, the hills are also home to a giant carnivorous bug that only appears once every thousand years to feed: THE MILLENNIUM BUG! THE MILLENNIUM BUG is what you would get if Lloyd Kaufman were asked to direct CLOVERFIELD. Why anyone thought to cross hixploitation with the giant monster movie is beyond us, but it works! It isn't the the crass humor or the blood-soaked gore that does it necessarily, nor the campy performances, but the incredibly inventive and ambitious set designs and special effects. Kenneth Cran and his talented team of artists fall back on a number of traditional techniques to bring the creature to life on screen. The models and miniatures blend smoothly against the green-screened characters to convincingly trick the eye, at least until they can bring on the giant life-sized puppets. Troma and giant monster fans can get their fix in THE MILLENNIUM BUG! Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
