Mimic | 1997 | R | - 1.7.6

Horror film about bugs taking on human form and chasing people around.

SEX/NUDITY 1 - A woman is shown in a slip. Kissing. Sexual innuendo.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - Many scenes of monstrous looking bugs and lots of squishy sounds as bugs kill people. A body is pulled into a sewer grate with bones twisting and breaking. A man is eaten by a bug and we see bugs chewing on a man. Scenes of a half-eaten dog with intestines showing. Children are attacked by a bug-man (we hear screaming and bones crunching). A few scenes of rotting bugs and bug parts. A bug dissection. A decaying body with chewed up intestines is shown. A bug is hit by a subway train and is dragged along; it then disintegrates leaving bug parts on the tracks. A bug grabs a man and there's blood spewing from his mouth. Bugs attack a group of people who shoot at them: a bug is shot in half but it keeps moving. A bug slashes a man's leg leaving open, bleeding wounds (seen many times). A bug is sliced up and people smear bug juices over themselves. A woman slices her hand until it bleeds. A bug bites a woman's hand. A man falls off a building with an audible splat. Explosions with fires and people being thrown by the force.

LANGUAGE 6 - About 15 F-words, a profane hand gesture, many scatological references, some mild obscenities and some anatomical references.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
