Storyline

When a cockroach-spread plague threatened to decimate the child population of New York City in the original Mimic, biologist Susan Tyler and her research associates developed a crossbreed species of insect, the "Judas Breed" and introduced them into the environment, where they were to spread a toxin, lethal to the cockroaches. The plan worked until the bugs evolved to mimic their next prey.....humans! Just when they were all thought to be dead, the giant Judas bugs are back, and this time they've mutated to take on human form! Written by Anonymous

creature feature B-horror
17 May 2016 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Entomologist Remi Panos is an inner New York city grade school teacher. She has not had the best luck with men. On top of them, there is a mysterious figure stalking her. Something is coming up from the underground to kill. Police detective Klaski (Bruno Campos) connects the deaths with Remi. Remi, her student Sal, and Nicky battle the insectlike creature.

As a lowly straight-to-video B-horror, it has its moments. There is a creature. There are some gross out moments. There is a functional creature feature at the core. However, there isn't enough good stuff. It's silly to make this a bad-dates theme. Also the special operations team in the last act is unnecessary. It turns a weak small horror into something unwieldy. There are a couple of good moments in an otherwise poor sequel.
