Ewwwwwwwwww,I HATE COCKROACHES!, 29 March 2000
Author: Chibi Riza from Kahn

This is not a movie for Cockroach haters like I.But noooooo,someone (whom shall remain nameless for the point being)forced me to watch this piece of crap movie!

But in "Twillight",they make the Cockroaches look (yes,it's true^^;)cutesy and humanoid,which adds quite a bit of injury to the insult and they make cockroaches look like sweet creatures,instead of the annoying little pests like they really are!Plus,there is a rather out-dated allegory,if you can pay attention to the movie much longer.

The only parts I liked in this nightmare of a movie is where the broad that moves into the apartment with her slob boyfriend,tries (and sort of suceeds) to kill those damn annoying cocokroaches!

If you wanna see this badly otakus,I just might wish you good luck finding an un-damaged copy of this film!
