Critic Reviews of "Mimic"
USA TodayJanuary 01, 2000
A dark, dank and derivative horror ride only an Orkin man could truly love.
Ozus' World Movie ReviewsApril 26, 2017
A dark story that entertains with artistic moments until it fizzles as it becomes derivative of those standard sci-fi horror Big Bug films from the fifties.
Seanax.comMay 19, 2012
It comes off smarter and creepier than I recall the original, less about scares than a sustained atmosphere of eerie unease and skittery threats.
Creative LoafingMay 08, 2012
Viewers will be forgiven for wanting to rush next door and douse their neighbor with RAID.
IGN DVDJanuary 29, 2012
While a visual treat, Mimic is exactly that, a film which mimics other styles and plot elements. In this case Alien and David Cronenberg's The Fly and Videodrome.
Combustible CelluloidSeptember 30, 2011
It's clear now that Del Toro's favorite themes and symbols were already in place, with the vast underground setting, machinery, and man's interference in the supernatural order of things -- not to mention a talent for pure terror.

Mimic: The Director's Cut on Blu-ray is a true gift for fans.

Preposterous, yes, but a lot of fun.
eFilmCritic.comJuly 18, 2008
Fairly lame bug horror. Not del Toro's best, to put it mildly.
KPBS.orgJuly 10, 2008
Del Toro does not make Tyler a symbol of science gone out of control or of science for greed, instead he makes her a scientist who in doing good has created a monster and has to live with that guilt.
Cinema em CenaMarch 07, 2007
Del Toro consegue criar alguns bons momentos de tensão e o filme conta com um design de produção bastante acima da média para exemplares do gênero. Ainda assim, a história óbvia, típica de uma produção B, resulta em um longa descartável.

a real creepfest, directed for maximum chilliness
