This was actually a strangely endearing film, it had the delicious b-movie cliches, a genuinely likeable gay romance between two very awkward but sweet characters. It's very tongue-in-cheek as you would imagine, but holds its own very well.
This is why you listen to your parents when they tell you not to move in together. The weird acting (especially Bettis's insane accent) really worked for me and the relationship at its core was sweet enough that I didn't want anyone to turn into giant bugs. But they did. Gimmie some skin.
I thought this was a lot of fun. Lesbian melodrama, Reynold Brown inspired "insectoid" monsters and a soundtrack compilation of Francophone indie-rock. A nice blend of ironic B-movie nonsense and "quirky" contemporary romance.
