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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Grows On You October 5, 2010
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Open Wide And Say "AAAAAGGGGGHHHCCBBLLLRRZZT!"... June 13, 2011
Format:DVD
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad...creatures looks good October 25, 2010
Format:DVD
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great Special Effects...Nothing Great After That July 3, 2011
By PR GUY
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for surprising me February 24, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Let me start by saying that I didn't expect much of this movie and now I will admit I was wrong. For a very low budget movie it held my attention, grossed me out from time to time and had me enthralled. Story was very good, directing was good, overall the acting was very good, too. If you are a horror fan, you could do worse than this movie, I loved it and I also have to say the stand out performance goes to Christopher Shand who played the step brother and the reason was he had to change gears with his character in the movie, from sickly and wimpy to confident and tough. You will see.

3.0 out of 5 stars Horror Fans May 14, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I found this movie to be different, almost like body snatchers except this things are like slugs taken over the body and than some weird mutation happens, but it was entertaining and I found it to be a good watch.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pass on this one. February 4, 2011
Format:DVD
This is a poor plot if I ever saw one. The parasites look good for the most part and I had hopes the story could hold together but oh no. The story just falls flat and becomes a bunch of babel about pushing the human evolution up a few notches, sure, hit me up with some cool parasites doc. I want to be a super human, sounds great. Ian Patrick Williams is pretty creepy in his roll as Mason and really show me how bad old Richard Riehle is in his role as the man who may save the day. Now if your a Nora Kirkpatrick fan like I am you may have to see this flick. Nora has been in a bunch of TV shows and I think she really is the only resign to see this film. Christopher Shand is good in his roll as Justin and I look forward to seeing him in a good movie some day. But two or three good actors can not save a bad film in this case. Pass this turd right on by folks and if you must check it out don't say I didn't tell you so.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time or money... September 16, 2010
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Sounded promising, fairly cool DVD cover artwork, new release... for one of the most boring "horror" movies you will have the misfortune to rent. Keeping this review short, as watching this video already wasted 40 minutes of my life, waiting for it to get even remotely interesting or thrilling... no such luck. Let me save you the lost time and money - don't rent this one. The plot is non-existent and it moves slower than a snail, poor acting, even worse directing, with special effects worthy of a 10-year-old using a 20-year-old laptop.

4.0 out of 5 stars better than you'd think
A real squeemer. Good story, F/X. Plot a little disjointed but worth the watch with a drink in your hands.

4.0 out of 5 stars Typical, but I liked it
Typical "B" creature feature; which I like. Fun but not "deep". If you want an artsy fartsy movie with meaning....look elsewhere.
