If we’re screaming when we see cockroaches in our bathroom, imagine he’s 20 feet tall and has a recommended diet to eat people, although he’s not famous for attacking people when we pull out 70 pounds and 70 or so corpses. We would have reasons to run there.
We’ve spent decades imagining the idea that insects and spiders undergo mutations that endanger the human kingdom on Earth by magnifying them to unexpected limits. If we’re having a hard time finishing the ant plague, imagine giant ants.

If you want to cure the fear that has gripped you since your first childhood, today’s list may be the shock treatment of the not forgotten.. For better or worse. Without further ado, let’s move on to the movies of the week.
