Movie Reviews

Michael Butts | Martinsburg, WV USA | 11/29/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"THEY CRAWL is simply what it is meant to be: a 50's B movie, updated with a little more violence and superior computer graphics. And on that level, it's one creepy movie. Although screen time for the roaches isn't quite enough, when they are on, ughhh!!!!!
Okay, we open with a roach crawling up the leg of a bus driver, and then a freakish scene of the driver trying to get the bugs out, and continuing to drive the bus. WHY DIDN'T HE JUST STOP DRIVING? Who cares? It's a smashing opening.Then we meet a dashing young military man (with a secret) played stoically by Daniel Cosgrove who comes home to his ill momma (the delightfully underused GRACE ZABRISKIE) and his teeny bopper sister to find out that his younger genius brother is acting weird. Seems computer savvy brother and one of his pals are messing around with government research on what else, cockroaches?
Before you know it, pretty police detective Tamara Davies becomes involved in the case when nerd brother is mysteriously murdered.
Their investigation leads to Dennis Boutsikaris as the boys' professor---is he in on it? And how about Tone Loc as a gambling brother? Or Mickey Rourke as the leader of a long-established death cult? Or Even Tim Thomerson as a super-kind-of pest exterminator?
It's all second class fun, and the ending is so out of left field, you can't help but enjoy. Man can these bugs talk or what?
A coke-and-popcorn bug movie

"I've always been a sucker for simply made monster movies, like Tremors. As straight-to-video ones go, this is pretty good. The main actors aren't that gripping, but the best performances are found in the smaller parts - by Mickey Rourke and Tone Loc. The commentary on the DVD from the director and producer is actually a pretty good behind-the-scenes peek of how to do a great-looking movie with a small budget. The film looks great, nice conversion to DVD. Hey, it's a bug movie. What did you expect, Hamlet?"

"It seems to be a nice cockroach buggie creepie-crawlie show, but it turns out to be this extremely BORING detective movie. The majority of the movie is a stupid criminal investigation. Hardly any roaches in it. BOOORRRING. The entire movie crawls slowly and it's hard to keep your interest. Mostly dialogue. Dullsville.

If you have insomnia, watch it.
