Movie Review by BillyBob
March 27th, 2010


With all of its super-slimy gore and sticky icky-ness, MIMIC certainly rates right up there as one of the better "Bug" monster movies around.

Genetic Engineers create a "designer predator" called the Judas Breed as a means to combat a virulent disease carried by NYC roaches, which is causing the deaths of hundreds of city children. This large, roach-like insect is intended to feed off of the diseased roaches and then die off in a few years, since they are designed not to breed.

Unfortunately, over a period of 3 years, this mutated species has grown quite large (reaching up to 6 feet in length) and has also found a way to reproduce itself. To add to the overall horror of the Judas Breed, this creature has developed a taste for meat and found the ability to mimic its own appearance and behavior to that of other creatures with an uncanny accuracy - including humans.

Huge swarms of the Judas Breed bug are soon discovered living and multiplying beneath the city's subway system.

As the team of scientists and exterminators head down into the very bowels of the NYC subway system, it really is quite interesting to see just how intricately designed these underground tunnels are, and just how incredibly deep it all plunges down into the earth.
