John Sturges clearly had an affinity for the Amercian West since his best films all seem to be set there. The Magniicent Seven and Gunfight at the OK Corrall are probably the best known, but Bad Day at Black Rock is another great Sturges film.

I wouldn't claim that The Satan Bug is up to the same standard, but it is still in my view well worth watching. The first part set in an isolated laboratory surreounded by emply desert is partcularly impressive, enhanced by one of Jerry Goldsmith's best scores.Later, when the action shifts away from the laboratory, the film becomes more of a routine thriller, though competient enough. Richard Basehart is probably the best known actor, though all the cast (including Ed Asner as a heavy) turn in workmanlike performances.

As several reviews have mentioned poor picture quality I was slightly doubtful about buying the MGM dvdr version (out of stock at the moment). I don't think this deserves the most adverse comments, This is clearly taken from an unrestored release print with the inevitable loss of quality that this implies. It is however in anamorphic 1:2.35 ratio and perfectly watchable, though obviously not up to one taken from a high quality negative.

Arrived within good time. Had to contact seller as DVD was in Spanish. Seller got back quickly with instructions on how to get the DVD to play in English. The sellers info wasn't quite accurate. On your DVD controls push MENU go to SIN SUBTITULOS then select VER PELICULA. then sit back and enjoy. The film wasn't as clear as the original, quite fuzzy, hence only three stars.

The Satan Bug is an excellent thriller. It has no pretensions to be a blockbuster. Instead it's good, solid entertainment with a beginning, middle and end. The pretence is carried off with aplomb and the period feel is well done. If you need some no nonsense, lazy day entertainment having a few beers and chilling out this movie is for you. It doesn't insult your intelligence, doesn't hang about and keeps you rivetted. All we need now is to have it on DVD. Some extras would be nice but a good quality print would be fine.

I love this film. Its full of atmosphere and action with rather quirky music. This Spanish release plays fine on UK DVD players, once the correct version is selected from the menu. Recommended.

This is an un-doubted jem. All time classic 60's sci-fi thriller, with the threat being a lethal strain of virus . . . . .

Yes the sets creak around the edges, yes the acting has its wooden moments, yes the plot thins towards the conclusion, . . . . but it is a master piece of 60's paranoia. The desert setting, the now glorious 60's feel to all the scenes and fashions, and the music . . .

I watched this first over 20 years ago, longed for the VHS for years, was overjoyed to find a copy in Tesco, and now search on here for it on DVD . .. .

Please please someone out there get this film onto DVD and let it pass onto the next generation of cult classic lovers out there.

This is a great item and I would most certainly recommend it to others.
It is worth every penny paid for it.

If you like films like Capricorn One, The Andromeda Strain and so on, you'll love this one. Filmed in the mid 60's and set in rural areas of the American desert, it's about a seemingly mad scientist who steals a biological weapon (a flask of fluid) that could kill everything on the planet. It's not really sci-fi in it's delivery and the whole film is structured around the chase for this one guy and his side-kick. It could easily have been written by Michael Crichton and the "look" of the film is that typical 60's feel, with big cars, rough roads and an aspiring cast.

This is not a low marking with regards the film itself, which I cannot view. The problem is that due to copy protection this does not play on my laptop or my hard-disk TV recorder DVD. There is a statement on the back of the disk to the effect that the disk is only designed to play on "play only" DVD players.

Be sure you have such a player before buying. Whoever mastered this disk needs to be stacking shelves in a supermarket, sheer incompetence.
