Infested (Ticks) 1993 (V)


There are two good things about this film. Seth Green and the practical effects, both of which are very good (except for some shoddy model work) . The film follows the highly plausible tale of a group of city kids who end up at an abandoned / closed summer camp for an outreach project. They fall foul of steroidal super ticks and the two local drug farmers.vlcsnap-2012-02-10-19h26m23s79

If that sounds oddly familiar and strangely farcical that is because it is, Ticks is a terrible film with so little in the way of sense and style that I am amazed that it has such a loyal following on IMDb (well not that amazed IMDb seems to attract these people). In essence the film fails as a horror and is a half arsed comedy, it shows all the hallmarks of a film with no clear aim other than to make money and as such is a total failure.

Don't bother with this one unless it is on late night TV and you are stoned, pissed or really, really bored.
