Storyline

Our hero, Cooper, awakes to find himself nauseous, weak and covered in webbing, hanging from the ceiling of an office where, just minutes ago, he started his new job. As he struggles out of his slimy prison he comes face to face with his opponent - a grotesque, powerful and very angry bug. All 3 ft of it. And so begins a hideous, nail-biting, comedic, all-action adventure to find a safe haven while constantly outwitting an infestation of monstrous proportions. As Cooper embarks on his journey, he befriends a ragtag group of survivors including Sara, a feisty attractive female. Although the situation is dire, Cooper can't help himself from trying to solve his dating problem while trying to save his life. Will they make it to safety before they are picked off one by one? And what other surprises are in store for our group of unlikely heroes? Written by Icon

Better than expected, even with high expectations
11 July 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

No reviews yet for this little gem, so I'll go ahead.

I went in expecting a low budget campy horror B-movie and wow, I certainly did not expect a movie that good in overall.

Most of the actors are quite good, even the extras, and the main character and his entourage are surprisingly well developed for this kind of movie.

I wouldn't call the movie fast=paced, but the action in well maintained throughout and starts after less than 10 minutes, so no long buildup, the bugs are there at the beginning, you get to know more about them as the movie goes so there are no long boring explanations.

The CGI is very well done and keeps you in the movie and there are plenty of bugs of a few kinds.

But what really did the movie for me was the dark humor, think Shaun of the Dead, but with insects. Even if the movie has a serious tone, you always get some well done jokes here and there, mostly by the likable anti-hero that just seems to try so hard.

A must see for the horror/comedy fans and for the critters fans in general.
