Of course, the best scene in the movie is when one of the giant ticks is set loose in a vet's office and after they try valiantly but unsuccessfully to capture it with a fishtank net, the vet stomps on it, and the tick explodes into HIGHLY realistic white mush. As I said before, when in doubt...
For a run of the mill horror movie, this one is above average in its fright scale and in its effects. I expected something much worse and was pleasantly, if not creepily, surprised!!!!
This is one horror flick that gets under your skin! hehe. -j/k
Having once lived in an area where ticks were commonplace, I could appreciate the horror aspect of having one or more of the little critters clinging to your body. Having them dug into you when they're the size of a fist is just plain crazy. This is a worse fear realized!
The plot isn't all that complicated nor does it waste any time trying to develop into anything more than a group of people in the woods as a tick infestation is on the rise. Ticks on steroids, as a matter of fact, being the brainstorm of a marijuana grower (Clint Howard). Soon the ticks are running riot, attaching themselves to anything that moves. It's surprising how well crafted these killer insects are and just how effectively they are utilized throughout the movie. It more than makes up for the lacking as far as some of the actors are concerned. To suggest that some of them are a bit extreme in the overdevelopment of their characters is to diminish the truly spectacular lengths they've gone to as first class hams. I don't have to name names they're obvious. The best performance though, belongs to Seth Green as a former "tree hugger" trying to overcome his past. But the real stars, of course, are the ticks. My favorite scene involves a tick on the loose with a hypodermic needle stuck in its back.
A great balance of comedy and horror.
