In Mimic 2, Remy Panos (Koromzay), an entomologist who survived the mayhem of the original Mimic, is now a biology teacher at a New York City school. She spends her evenings alone with her bug collection, as she cannot seem to find Mr. Right...let alone the fact that every time she meets Mr. Potential, he strangely disappears. As Detective Klaski (Campos) begins an investigation, Remy and Klaski learn that a mutated insect has taken special interest in her, and will do away with anyone who gets close to her. Based on the short story by Donald A. Wollheim and the characters created by Matthew Robbins and Guillermo Del Toro. (Gary Reber)

Originally reviewed as an anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD in Issue 52. As then, the 1.85:1 1080p AVC Blu-ray Disc™ picture nicely suits the film's genre with its use of colors and slightly dark appearance. Colors are well balanced and better saturated compared to the DVD, at times stylized, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. Images are particularly sharp and detailed, especially during close-ups, with good shadow delineation, even into the darkest scenes. Some scenes still exhibit an intended softly focused appearance. The picture is quite solid and pristine throughout. No disappointment here. (Gary Reber)
The previous DVD featured a Dolby® Digital 5.1-channel soundtrack. This newly remastered DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack delivers a standout sonic presentation in terms of its far-reaching dimensional scope. The use of the low-end is exemplary, with clean, rumbling deep bass utilization to well below 25 Hz in the main channels, and with substantial .1 LFE engagement at times. The soundstage is aggressively engaged, with prominent split surround activity creating a sense of holosonic® spaciousness. Voices are delivered with natural tonality and just a slightly forward-sounding presence, but nicely integrated spatially. (Gary Reber)
