Genetically-engineered insects, turned loose in the New York subways to combat a cockroach infestation, eventually mutate into human-sized flesh eaters in Guillermo Del Toro ("Pan's Labyrinth," "Hellboy")'s English language debut.

I've been having a bit of a Del Toro catch-up recently, finally got around to Pan's Labyrinth and Hellboy 2 a little while back, so this'll be another I need to get around to!

Apparently "Mimic" and its two direct-to-video sequels have just been released in a box set. I haven't seen "2" or "3" yet but I recorded "Mimic 2" from IFC some time ago, haven't had time to watch it.

I remember watching this one.  I think it's my least favorite del Toro film.  Not that it was bad or anything, but just didn't do it for me.

Last week I finally got around to watching this flick, and I kinda wished I hadn't. Pretty lame follow up to a decent movie.

Based on the law of diminishing returns, I have decided that I will skip "Mimic 3: Sentinel" entirely.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
