The makers of the new Chinese 3D creature feature Bugs 3D are promising a throwback to the classic Hollywood B-movies of the Sixties and Seventies, but from the looks of the trailer, it seems to me more like an Asian mash-up of Deep Rising and The Deadly Spawn.
In the near future, due to a huge demand for protein, scientists have developed a synthetic alternative that has rapidly spread around the world.
Jams is a brilliant but fanatic geneticist and has managed to raise super bugs that can provide high-quality protein at a low cost. However, the reproduction of the bugs goes out of control, and they break out of the tubes, devour scientists, and turn into giant monsters. These monster bugs are hankering after flesh and blood and swarm into the sea, waiting to rage a holocaust.
Some brave souls are bold enough to jump onto the ship where the bug queen resides in hopes of ending the war by killing it. They know that if they don’t succeed, mankind will be doomed.
Bugs was shot in Real 3D, is directed by Vash Yan, and stars Xia Ti Long and Zhilin Zhang.
If you’re looking for a schlocky alternative to The Host with hot Asian babes on the run as big ugly monsters devour everyone in sight, this might be a flick to keep on your radar until it finally rears its ugly head Stateside.
