good cast, bad movie
25 April 2005 | by cheroldSee all my reviews

I only watched this because I was curious to see Lucy Lawless do something besides Xena. I always thought she was a good actress, but it's hard to tell when none of the lines are worth speaking.

I did not watch this for very long. It just had that, cheap, inept movie quality to it. The dialog was bad. It had these painful soap opera scenes between Lawless and her husband, or boyfriend, or whatever he was. I would get a bit nervous when I knew the bugs were about to attack, because it just seems icky, but the bug scenes I saw were notable for how completely unscary they were.

I might have watched a bit more of this if I were a bigger fan of creepy crawlies. I'm not big on bugs, and while I'll watch a decent bug movie like Arachnophia I will not suffer through a bad bug movie.

It's really very sad. Lawless was the star of a hit show and Heard has been in tons of major movies and here they are in a movie apparently made by a high school student of below-average intelligence. What a shame.
