Blows away the original!
14 February 2003 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

After watching the 1980 schlock version, this picture looks like a masterpiece. The updated version has a terrific sense of humor about itself. The filmmaker gets the fact that man mating with fish is inherently silly and, while delivering some genuine scares, never forgets this. "Mimic" could have learned from this picture that humor in these horror flicks is essential. This film recently aired on the CBS late movie, which is how I saw it. I'm glad I did.
