Remember that one movie where Angela Bettis played a lonely, awkward, eccentric bisexual? Yeah, it’s like that.

Premise

Awkward and unlucky in love, entomologist Ida Teeter thinks she may have hit the jackpot when she meets and becomes involved with an adorable artist named Misty Falls. At the same time, she receives a strange package from abroad, containing a mysterious and unclassified mantis-like insect (which she names Mick). However, Ida’s perfect relationship is put in danger when Mick bites Misty, triggering a series of bizarre personality changes…not to mention a physical transformation…

Critique

So far Masters of Horror has given us an adaptation of an H.P. Lovecraft story directed by Stuart Gordon, a tale of a mythical werecreature directed by John Landis, a meditation on the intersection of art and madness directed by John Carpenter, and a broad sociopolitical satire (including direct criticism of the media) directed by Joe Dante. The match-up of stories and directors will not come as any surprise…

We apologize for the problem.  It seems that the Drudgeon thinks it’s okay to steal other reviewers’ works.  He is being held in the dungeon right now and is being punished in the proper way.  Bad Drudgeon!!! Bad Drudgeon!!!

About The Drudgeon

I don't remember my real name or where I came from. All I know is that I'm traped in an underground cave with nothing but a TV, DVD player and a notebook and pen. They keep calling me The Drudgeon, I don't even know what that means. Someone keeps dropping horror movies in and yelling at me to watch them and write about what I watch. Then I eat the DVD and case, because they tell me if I consume the horror I will understand the horror. I think there are three of them. So if you are reading this right now, HELP ME!!!!!!! OUCH!!!! Someone just poked me with a sea urchin attacked to a pool cue, what the fuck is going on?
