Rear Window with giant roaches—what an awful idea!

At first, I couldn't help but wonder why the opening credits for Mimic 3 were rendered in a Saul Bass style typeface; it seemed a rather unusual choice for a film about giant killer cockroaches.

However, as the film unfolded, all became clear: writer/director J.T. Petty clearly fancies himself as some kind of modern-day Hitchcock, shamelessly ripping off the master of suspense's classic thriller Rear Window for this totally unnecessary second sequel to Guillermo Del Toro's rather disappointing original.

Petty, however, clearly possesses none of Hitchcock's flair for storytelling, and apart from some lingering shots of Alexis Dziena's cleavage, his film is an absolute snooze-fest. Even consummate professional Lance Henrikson, who usually provides value for money whatever the project, looks totally bored (and who can blame him?).

Hopefully, Mimic 3 marks the end of this second rate series, but you never can tell... like roaches, bad horror franchises are hard to kill.

Surprisingly good direct-to-video Mimic sequel

Surprisingly decent direct-to-video third film in the Mimic franchise. The giant humanoid New York City cockroaches are back and put an apartment complex under siege. In the film's favor, Lance Henriksen plays the human baddie, which always helps, the special effects are nicely icky, there's a fun riff on "Rear Window," and best of all there's a surprising amount of character development. And Amanda Plummer even makes an appearance. Nothing great, but better than I expected and better than the second film in the franchise.

Well, They Can't All Be Gems

Not sure why they even bothered making this film. Oh, yeah. I do. The Almighty Dollar - as good a reason as any, I guess.

You know a film sucks when you find yourself screaming at the screen, telling the inept characters to do things they're supposed to, not stupid things that simply propel the story along its collision course.

There were so many unanswered questions about the story that I don't know where to begin. I'm not even going to attempt that feat here because I'm signed in with Comcast Xfinity and I have only one hour of WiFi.

I like how the movie was too cheap to actually show the apartment building burning down, the hospital the sick kid showed up in, the emergency vehicles that carted him off in the first place, etc. (The director got away not showing anything by having the camera kept close-up on the kid's face and by using soundbites of events that should be visualized).

The film had a saving grace, however. It clocked in at 87 minutes. Good. Ten more minutes of that ineptitude and I would've had a stroke. And don't even get me started on the creature effects, or the fact that people go missing left and right, and gunshots go off left and right, and nary a police officer is in sight (other than the clown who showed up to bong the sick kid's mother).
