Horror • R • 1997 • 1 hr 45 min
Not great, but good and entertaining. 6.5/10
Mimic is leagues better than it has any right to be.
Pretty unique premise here with a memorable atmosphere and solid creature design
Good suspenseful movie. Better than I thought
Couple great moments in an altogether silly movie. If you like horror with less gore, decent enough for a watch
Very basic and average. Nothing really unique to film. Good thing Del Toro improved over his career
While this may be one of Del Toro’s lesser films (thanks studio interference!) those creature designs are worth it alone!
Guillermo’s weakest movie. Not terrible but more run of the mil 90s horror
Really good creature feature that takes a unique premise of creature mixed with your typical humans playing God story line.
