Fresh: an inoculation of uniqueness and a victorious mix of character-detail and plot...youll cheer writer-director J.T Petty for the change

In a nutshell this is Rear Window with giant bugs. This is a decent sequel to " Mimic" that works despite its low budget ( most of the film, even the exteriors are shot on a set). It has its own sense of style and actually has some very creepy and scary scenes that are played in shadow. I'm sure its one of those cases of financial necessity leads to creative invention since you can tell they didn't have the budget for huge effects shots. Also you have a solid cast here with Alexis Dziena and Lance Henriksen being the standouts To sum up, This one is worth a look if your in the mood for a good horror rental and if your a fan of Mimic.

A very unconventional take on the giant bug genre. Pretty much 'Rear Window' meets the original 'Mimic'. Does a good job tying into the original films and continuing the story. Unfortunately, the pacing betrays the film, as it is pretty boring for the first 45 minutes, and we're left watching questionable actors struggle with a questionable script, in questionable direction production. Director Petty does a good job of covering up the awful effects by keeping his creatures back-lit and almost exclusively in the shadows. Despite the majority of the film being fairly boring, the last 20 minutes is a brutal gore-fest that at least comes close to making the previous 45 worth it. Even though he's only in it for a short period, Lance Henriksen makes any movie he's in way cooler. All in all, the interesting attempt with a frenzied climax, but its slow beginning and amateurish production keep it from being anything other than so-so.
