Horror Movie Trailer: The Millennium Bug

By Mike Everleth ⋅ September 13, 2011

Remember all that Y2K hysteria back in 1999? And how it all turned out to be a big nothing when the calendar hit 2000? Well, wouldn’t have been a lot cooler if something had happened? Like the world suddenly got run over by murderous hillbillies and giant monsters?

That’s sort of the premise of Kenneth Cran’s The Millennium Bug. A nice family takes refuge in the Sierra Diablos Mountains on the eve of Y2K, thinking they’ll ride out whatever happens. But, what they don’t count on is being kidnapped by backwoods psychopaths and chased by giant creatures with really, really big teeth.
