Editorial Reviews

In 1989, a breakthrough in Advanced Parasitic Development at the Cuttyhunk Island Research Facility led to a mysterious outbreak that killed most of the center's staff and the island's residents. Twenty years later, a young woman who fled the original epidemic has returned with a group of friends to sell her family's property. But a new breed of parasite may have evolved and survived. They are fast moving. They can slither into, or out of, any orifice in the human body.

GROWTH is a derivative, yet satisfying, fun watch. I rented the film. It isn't something I would own at a high price, but it was an enjoyable watch. Mircea Monroe just shines in this film and is a fantastic quirky character. The entire cast does a good job trying to take a typical plot and treat it with dignity and seriousness. The special effects are decent enough. The plot moves at a good pace. It does have a few holes, but this is an expectation in this type of film. It is a fun way to kill some time, but don't expect to be swept away.

GROWTH is a sci-fi / horror film in the tradition of FLESHEATERS, BRAIN EATERS, SLITHER, THE HIDDEN, NIGHT OF THE CREEPS, etc., where parasites invade the bodies of the unwary, mutating them into automatons of doom. Jamie (Mircea Monroe) brings her boyfriend, half-brother, and best friend to an island she's inherited. Unbeknown-st to them, this island was the site of a biological disaster 25 years earlier, resulting in many deaths. Now, something is loose and Jamie and company are in for a rather disgusting shock! Not bad for a low-budget effort. The slippery critters are fairly well realized, but CGI always has that synthetic, cartoonish look...

I was wondering why some scenes just kept going and going, but most of the movie
was pretty good, with good slug effects. Then if you look at the extras you can
see why. This is another ' dont have enough budget ' movie. They did'nt have much
and used all the tricks in the book to have this movie made with what they had.
I have to give all a thumbs up for the good work they did on the film, but the
end product suffers a bit due to all the shortcuts.
So in the end, its a pretty good movie, but i dont think i want to watch it a
second time.

I thoroughly enjoyed the special effects...quite creepy...but beyond that this was a slow-moving...plotless...boring sci-fi flick with little or no substance. Sub-par acting, a horrible soundtrack, and mediocre editing made this one a "possibility". It could have been a box-office smash...but it missed on nearly every level. Another reviewer claimed this will grow on you. Not on me. One time is enough. 2 stars...for the special effects.

Growth (Gabriel Cowan, 2010)

Growth is one of those movies about which a whole lot of people are unloading a whole lot of calumny over on the IMDB boards. I've got an hypothesis about that (don't I always?). A lot of the things folks are saying—and I add, even before we get into it, that most of them are accurate—are the kinds of things that people say about movies that inspire ennui, not ire; it's boring, it's got plotholes you can drive a truck through, the acting is awful (that one I will dispute, at least in part, later on), the script is worse, etc. Nothing you haven't seen in hundreds of other DTV low-budget special effects extravaganzas. I think the reason that one has drawn so much hatred is that somewhere under the surface of this movie is a really, really good—perhaps great—movie. I think people are reacting to that, rather than the film we got. And that is a valid approach to criticizing the movie. But on the other hand, that also tends to give short shrift where it is, perhaps, undeserved; if you can separate what could have been from what is and overlook a few shortcomings that really are as bad as people make them out to be, this is actually not an awful way to kill ninety minutes if you're a fan of creepy-crawly horror.

Plot: researchers in a secret genetic lab on a remote island make a breakthrough in 1989, but it ends up getting loose and causing a massacre. Fast-forward twenty years. Jamie Ackerman (Magic Mike's Mircea Monroe), who escaped the terror of that night, and a handful of her friends return to the sparsely-populated island to sell her family's property. But something feels off.

There's a lot to like here. A lot. I especially liked the scene where the rather restrained, introverted fellow, having been infected by the genetics-changing parasite, goes out to a bar, walks right up to a beautiful woman and hits on her, and then beats the crap out of the local boys who are protective on her. I think if you just cut and pasted it over the dance scene in Spider Man 3 you would have a much better movie.
spoilers follow
But things feel far too slapped together overall. And worse, I kept asking myself, "Why are these people so stupid?" They walk into a field they know is loaded with parasites, and then just at random decide it would be a good idea to tape their pants legs shut. Why not before walking into the field? And then the leader of the town council goes to the lair of the madman infected psychopath and he's like, "Mason, I'm not armed." Why the hell not? And you have this team of heavily armed guys attacking a dangerous man they know has superhuman strength and agility. And once they have him surrounded, they proceed to tackle him in hand-to-hand-combat one at a time or once in pairs. Come on folks.
Still, if you love movies like Slither and Splinter, you'll probably dig this. I did..
