An eccentric Entomologist tells three dark tales about the creeping crawling insects that burrowing through the walls of homes, eating through our intestines, and for some of us, driving us slowly insane.

Indie movies on the whole are really hit-or-miss, and in reality are all-too-often a miss. The actors aren't strong enough to carry the film, the story falls through (or was just bad in the first place), they aimed to high and fell too short... about a zillion and a half things that can cause an otherwise okay film to to fall flat and boring.
That being said, the reason I loved this so much was the interaction of the three main characters. They start off as fairly standard roles you see pretty often. Spunky cute girl, comic relief best friend... okay, okay I've seen this before. But at some point when you're not looking you're sucked right into it, and that's where the movie really starts. I don't know if the actors were friends in real life, but the bond between them grows so much over the course of the film that you fall right into it with them. It's little things, like their body language towards each other, the little interactions and insults, inside jokes you don't catch right away. Even little bits in the movie itself, like the McGuffin that keeps popping up (so good). It's a lot like spending an afternoon with your friends. Your total #$%hole friends. But in a good way.
Overall a really fun ride with a few subtle heartstring tugs, and well worth a watch.
