Three years ago, entomologist Dr. Susan Tyler genetically created an insect to kill cockroaches carrying a virulent disease. Now, the insects are out to destroy their only predator, mankind.
According to Guillermo del Toro, Mira Sorvino and Jeremy Northam could not stand each other on set.
They mimic us. We mimic them.
When Susan goes into the abandoned subway office looking for Manny, she calls out "Chuy?" and not "Manny?" Chuy is hiding in the office, but at that point in the film she doesn't know it yet; she has no reason to expect to encounter Chuy and no reason to call his name. In fact, as far as we know, she shouldn't even know his name.
Guillermo del Toro released a director's cut in 2011. It runs for 112 minutes.
$7,818,208 (USA) (24 August 1997)
