Double bill of gory insect horror. In 'Mimic' (1997), three years after creating the Judas breed - a new species of insect - in order to wipe out plague-carrying cockroaches, Dr Susan Tyler (Mira Sorvino) worries that the breed may have evolved. Along with her husband Peter (Jeremy Northam) and their assistant Josh (Josh Brolin), they travel the subways looking for Judas specimens. Meanwhile, eight-year-old Chuy disappears after investigating shadowy figures at the local chapel, and his grandfather Manny sets out to track him down. Both Manny and Susan make a terrible discovery - the Judas insects have developed the ability to take on human form, and are now set to destroy mankind. In the sequel, 'Mimic 2' (2002), Bruno Campos plays police detective Klaski, who discovers a link when three hideously mutilated men are found hanged in New York City: all three men knew entomologist Remi (Alix Koromzay), a teacher at a high school in the city. But is Remi a muder suspect - or the victim of a darker force?
