I vaguely remember Mimic (1997) when it came out. I know I saw it, but for the life of me, I couldn’t tell you anything about it. Since it’s a Guillermo del Toro film, I figured I’d give it another watch. Back then, I had no idea who he was, or why he mattered, of course, that’s changed since 1997.

MimicStrangely, I can check out bugs all day long, take photos of them for Facebook and Instagram, and I have no problem. The minute I see them in a movie or read them in a book my skin starts to crawl. Maybe, that’s why I don’t remember the details of this movie; I blocked it out.

I’m impressed with the edge of the seat thrills and suspense Mimic offered throughout the film. There was a moment of boredom for me. The presentation of the mutated insects is remarkable, making this a gross-out creature feature for me. As I watched, I remembered things from the first time I’d seen it, and for some reason had placed the memory under Predator.

3.5 Stars

The concept disturbs me, and that’s why, in my opinion, it’s a great film. I give Mimic 3.5 out of 5 Stars.

  1. I think old is not always gold tbh. I do like old movies like mimic. But the modern storytelling platforms have brought wonderful possibilities which sadly the old movies lack.
