They Crawl ★★ Crawlers 2001 (R)

More complicated than usual for the creepy crawlie genre. Ted Gage (Cosgrove) learns his biophysicist brother has been electrocuted and all his organs removed. Ted teams up with cop Gina (Davies) to figure out what's going on and finds connections between the murder, a homicidal cult, and lethal cockroaches linked to a government surveillance project. Everybody looks convinced that this makes some kind of sense. 93m/C VHS, DVD . Daniel Cosgrove, Dennis Boutsikaris, Tim Thomerson, Tamara Davis, Tone Loc, Mickey Rourke, Grace Zabriskie; D: John Allardice; W: Curtis Joseph, David Mason; C: Maximo Munzi; M: Neal Acree. VIDEO
