In the small town North Port in New England, something’s gone amiss – the bindings of the books in the local library have been damaged and several dogs have been reduced to bloody carcasses. What could be causing all this? And why does the Sheriff keep finding dead cockroaches in his house?

Join BUFF in the East Coast Premiere of a prime slice of 80’s mania where genetically engineered cockroaches (2000 of them were used for filming!) face-off the residents of North Port in Terence H. Winkless hysterically brilliant animals-run-amok masterpiece based on the 1980’s novel of the same name.
