Fresh: ...directed with a lot of panache and contains enough blood and guts to satisfy gorehounds.

Audience Reviews

2 stars

Completely unnecessary sequel with a weak and lazy plot. Only one of the original characters return in this one played by Alix Koromzay, who had a bit part in the first film, this time round she plays the lead. And of course we have the return of the "Mimic" bugs which were a creepy and cool creation. Overall there wasn't as much big action due to lack of budget which clear to see by the poor CGI work. But it has some fun moments, a bit of gore now and then and it does a decent job recreating the dark urban grimey atmosphere the first film achieved so well. Mediocre and forgettable sums this one up though, but for lovers of the original it may be worth a look, just don't set your expectations high.

A tale of beauty and the beast with insects. This movie wasn't as good as the first one, too little main characters. This is a typical straight-to-video sequel that is challenging to sit through.

I can't actually remember this as I watched it years ago when my dad got it out. I remember it was pretty lame and I'm pretty sure this was in a school or something, and if not then I think I have the wrong movie. I remember a scene where they put chairs/tables up to keep the thing away from them. Um... the only other thing I remember is that due to the fact it was a sequel I wanted to watch the first one. Which I now have done.
