Funny Horror Movie Dangles on the Cusp of Greatness

Infestation is a watchable movie. Let me begin with that because I have a lot of criticism for this movie, but most is constructive. This is a movie that with a few different touches really could have been the next Shaun of the Dead. Walking the tight rope between horror and comedy is tough because it's easy to lose both crowds. Some people don't find bugs funny and others aren't scared when the mood lightens too drastically.

The thing that this movie does best is separate the horror from the comedy moments without seeming choppy or displaced. You can be knee deep in a bug attack one second and be laughing the next. And it feels natural. Chris Marquette really brings this movie together. His quirky, lame attitude attributes to most of the comedy but believe-ability that the horror can be serious.

The major flaw of the movie is that many of the supporting roles are played well, but no one else really pops. If someone else could've helped carry the comedy load it would've really helped. Not to mention that the attempt at being sincere at the end is acted poorly. However, having Ray Wise in this movie was a big success.

I truly felt that if another funny character existed and the script was spruced up a bit, this movie could have become the cult classic it was meant to. The fact that it even accomplished what it did, given the difficult genre mix, is proof enough that they were close to greatness.

I would recommend this movie to everyone that likes HorComs or for those who don't like horror movies and need some levity to get through them.

Painfully Bad, but Decent Effects

This movie is just garbage. Sorry if this counts as a spoiler, but there's no discernible plot other than "giant insects are attacking." Most of the characters are interchangeably bland and non- important, so I'm not even sure how many are left unless they're all together in one room for a headcount. The main character is supposed to come off as funny (I guess) but ends up being just obnoxious, like if Ryan Reynolds had his IQ bumped down 30 points or so.

Worst of all, however, is that this movie doesn't know what it wants to be. Is it a monster movie? Is it a spoof of a monster movie? Are the rampant clich├ęs put there on purpose, or is it just a lack of originality? Do the characters do and say deliberately dumb things because it's supposed to be funny? Or was this movie written by people who have no idea how real humans act?

On the other hand, the special effects are well-executed. Whoever did the insect effects in this film could be on the crew of a Naked Lunch remake. Other than that, I'm not sure how this film has gotten such great reviews, except that maybe most people who like good films have never heard of it. Do yourself a favor and don't waste your time with this trash heap straight out of Amateurville.

There was no story

The CGI looks a little cheap but it is effective. There's nothing too exciting too look at except for the giant bugs. Not the best mix by a long shot. Also not the worst. The bass was pretty poor and dialogue not appropriately prioritised. Then again it did the job, used the surround and was never bad. There was no story! It was just giant bugs and people trying to survive them. It wasn't that funny, they are much funnier monster movies. It starts very quickly indeed. It's pretty forgettable. The ending was very annoying. Not a brilliant film, it is just a film with giant bugs and silly gore.
