Mimic. 1997.

After a virus breaks out, a entomologist creates a insect to kill cockroaches that are carrying the disease. Three years later the insect returns to kill mankind.

This was adecent little science-fiction chiller from directer Guillermo del Toro who initially had problems with producers yet managed to soldier on and give us something interesting. From start to finish the cast with Mira Sorvino and Jeremy Northam is quite good, F. Murray Abraham has a more small cameo role than a big starring role and Charles S. Dutton as the tough subway officer. There is quite a dark atmospheric tone especially in the sewers and subway scenes and a dread of claustrophobia mixed in nicely.
