movie coverI'd rather be watching TV![IMDB link] [Netflix link] Watched in 720p HD.

QUIRKS: Everybody wakes up to find out bugs have taken over the world, and wrapped everyone in cocoons. You’d think this is a horror, but it has a comedic attitude the whole time… Much like Shaun Of The Dead. Just not as funny.

But keep an eye out for Ray Wise, from Twin Peaks (and also Tim And Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!). Nothing like seeing the guy who… well… You know. I’m not going to spoil Twin Peaks. Not even here. :)

VISUALS: Large (4- to 15-ft) bugs that suck.

BAD STUFF: The comedy wasn’t as strong near the end as it was at the beginning.

CONCLUSION: A generic pass of a comedy horror — but at least it was comedy first, horror second. Most horror is “try to be scary but it’s actually funny”, whereas this is one of the rare ones where they are trying to be funny. That made it lighthearted, fun entertainment. However, the jokes could have been better. Definitely worth checking out at least once, though.

RATINGS: Netflix: 3/5 stars. IMDB: 6/10. Generic pass.

RECOMMENDATION: Worth checking out if you can see it in HD.

SIMILAR MOVIES: Shaun Of The Dead is a funnier post-apocalyptic comedy-horror.
