A group of heavily armed hijackers board a luxury ocean liner in the South Pacific Ocean to loot it, only to do battle with a series of large-sized, tentacled, man-eating sea creatures who had already invaded the ship.
A disease carried by common cockroaches is killing Manhattan children. In an effort to stop the epidemic an entomologist, Susan Tyler, creates a mutant breed of insect that secretes a fluid to kill the roaches. This mutant breed was engineered to die after one generation, but three years later Susan finds out that the species has survived and evolved into a large, gruesome monster that can mimic human form.Written by

After Leonard and Dr. Mann fall, Dr. Mann instructs Josh to thrown down the glow sticks. He's still writing the instructions on his hand when he leaves, he never throws down anything. Neither of the 3 characters do anything that would indicate that he does. Later you see Dr. Mann using glow sticks that shouldn't be there. See more »
Leonard, have you ever seen anything like this before?
Why you asking me if I've seen some shit like this before? Do I look like I've seen some shit like this before? Hell, no I a'int never seen no shit like this before. Who the fuck would wanna climb up one of these walls and hang one of these? Musta been a big elephant-ass motherfucker.

Guillermo del Toro released a director's cut in 2011. It runs for 112 minutes. See more »
I can't believe this movie has a 5.8 while the likes of something as sh*tty as "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" has a 6.7. For God's sake the first Quarantine has around a 6.0, and I'd rather stick a hot needle in my eye till it sizzled and popped (curtsey of "Under Siege 2") then go thru the grueling experience of watching that film again. This film is under the helm of Guillermo del Toro, and it has a number of merits going for it. While the story may be one we have seen before, the characters he fills it with are far from bland. Mira Sorvino is sexy as well as great lead female, Jeremy Northam is also very good and Charles S. Dutton is great. Also, Josh Brolin is very good in it, kind of an asshole, but good. And if you're a real del Toro fan, keep your eyes out for a cameo of Norman Reedus and Doug Jones.
Another thing that separates this film from the bunch is incredible production design. Compared to the dull sets seen in "Quarantine", this film speaks volumes about the decay of mankind. Dingy, disgusting, dark, and decrepit, and that's just the d's that describe the awesome look of the film. And complimenting this is one of the maestro Marco Beltrami's master scores. Nice use of the eerie chorus adds greatly to many scenes. Where was "Quarantine" (s) score? Oh I forgot it was trying so hard to be 'realistic'. Thing is both films do have more or less seen before plots, but "Mimic" excels because it is so much more artistic at it. At the base of entertainment, film is still rooted in being an art form, and so hold "Mimic" to be in high caliber compared to the sh*tfest of most horror films today.
