Terrific sequel
18 October 2003 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

All right, so you scared the beejeebus out of everyone with MIMIC. You may have eve scared a few folks with MIMIC 2. So what can you do for an encore? Well, for one thing you can use your monsters sparingly, which this taut little thriller does, and you can add a little mystery to the proceedings, which this flick also does. In fact, it lifts the plot of REAR WINDOW to tell of the re-emergence of the super insects as seen by an apartment shut-in (who may be the autistic kid from the first MIMIC, all grown up). Why the insects are on the rampage is the film's mystery, one that is revealed in the last few minutes. Lance Henriksen is about the only name actor on hand, as a doctor up to no good, but the rest of the cast acquit themselves quite nicely. A great if improbable finale will keep you on the edge of your seat. This one's a keeper.
