ReceptionEdit

Bug Buster received almost universally negative reviews from audiences and critics alike.[1] Despite this, some viewers enjoyed it, seeing it as a throwback to fifties monster films.[citation needed] Robert Pardi of TV Guide said "this modestly budgeted effort has a certain low key charm."[2]
