Having announced himself as an exciting new voice in horror with “Cronos” Del Toro chose to follow it with his first English language feature “Mimic” based on the Donald A. Wollheim short story as Del Toro brought to the screen a tale of shape shifting bugs living in the New York system in a production hampered by the interference of producer Harvey Weinstein leaving Del Toro with a film he was unhappy with until his directors cut finally saw the light of day in 2011.
Come Join Us in the Booth as Elwood and Kim go on a bug hunt to see if this might be a hidden gem in Del Toro’s filmography.
