I thought that this movie would be much like Slither or Splinter, but it turned out to be another relatively low budget horror flick with okay script and surprisingly good special effects. They are pretty graphic and squirmy, so that’s a major plus to the movie. But the rest is pretty mediocre, and I think that it had great potential, but somehow it slipped away from the film makers hands. Relying heavily on wonders of modern technology, they forgot to develop characters or create decent tension. Sure, I love it when those disgusting looking creatures are infecting humans, but we need more background. Still, if you’re a horror fan and are looking for some moderately watchable movie, Growth may be right for you.

Researching parasites in an effort to enhance the human kind, a group of scientist nearly makes it, but a terrible accident freezes their work. Now, a group of young people (why is it always the young, I think it would be very refreshing to see some old folks fighting with creatures from nightmares) revisits the island where those unfortunate experiments happened. As you are probably guessing something got loose and started infecting the visitors. Enjoy…
