Skin Crawling Gross Film!
3 December 2002 | by HardcoreKnightSee all my reviews

I have to admit I have probably watched more horror movies than I care to share,though out off all the movies i have seen,this movie actually makes you feel like roaches are crawling all over you! Its your basic genetic experiment gone wrong film,resulting in flesh eating hordes of roaches! If you want to watch a horror film that will actually make you feel involved as a potential victim,watch this.Though I really don't recommend you watch this film with your boy/girlfriend,or in the dark! Take it from me if you want gross skin crawling fun for an evening,you must own this film!
