When a cockroach-spread plague threatened to decimate the child population of New York City in the original Mimic, biologist Susan Tyler and her research associates developed a crossbreed species of insect, the "Judas Breed" and introduced them into the environment, where they were to spread a toxin, lethal to the cockroaches. The plan worked until the bugs evolved to mimic their next prey.....humans! Just when they were all thought to be dead, the giant Judas bugs are back, and this time they've mutated to take on human form! Written by

We follow the story through entomologist Remy (Alix Koromzay), who survived the first film. She does a great job discussing bugs and describes herself as a "wacko magnet" (while the police dub her a "predatory lesbo"). Koromzay is not a big name actress, but she is the heart of this film, and whether or not you like her will make or break this.
While Jean de Segonzac made his feature film directorial debut with this one, he was already an accomplished director of television and was even Oscar-nominated for some documentary work. I think he does a more than adequate job here, bringing strong performances from the actors and smoothly incorporating gore like a veteran horror director.
