While the first Mimic was decent and the sequel not too bad, number 3 is the absolute pits. Why the people in power funded this bomb is a mystery. Please do yourself a kindness and allow this one to fade into the past.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Dismissing the events of Mimic 2 this installment centers around one of the many kids involved in the first movies Judas Breed plot. Said child Marvin is now all grown up and living at home at 24 with his single mom and younger sister in an apartment complex in I beleive NYC with the worst case of allergies ive ever seen. Marvin spends his time mostly secluded in a sterilised room snapping photographs of his neighbors and other shadowy things in and around the courtyard. Once the pictures are devolped Marving adds the best ones to his wall which makes up a giant collage which depicts numerous faceless people doing all sorts of things oh and each has a name and a story he has conjured up for them ie Garbage Man,Ma Bell etc. Eventually Marvin begins to find something really dark taking shape shape in the pictures and starts to go ummm buggy. The producers are very open about their source material which is Hitchcocks classic Room with a View......with giant cockroaches but it is still true to the original concept much more so than the last one.. The best part of this chapter in the series is how well the sustained tension mounts without ever throwing it all at you at once and never once did I find any of the acting or story to be so unrealistic that the end result wasnt worth waiting for. When Guillermo Del Toro conceived Mimic originally from a short story by Donald A. Wolheim back in 1997 the results were mixed but the idea was ghoulish and 100% original so much to my surprise that Dimension Films is actually trying to keep this bug alive!!! Mimic 3 isnt breaking any new ground but the results fair slightly better than the original and in the end depending on your taste you might actually like this chapter the best I did and am interseted to see how far they are willing to take this franchise. Great Halloween rent has good scares and some gore to uhh brighten the corners a bit if you will.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
