About 'Infestation'

“Infest­a­tion” is a sci­ence fic­tion horror film released in 2009. The plot revolves around the main char­acter Cooper, who sud­denly finds him­self in a world full of gigantic, insect-like creatures. Together with a small group of sur­vivors, he must fight against these mutated creatures while finding a way to solve the mys­tery of their cre­ation.

The film is char­ac­ter­ised by its idio­syn­cratic and some­times absurd style, which enter­tains the viewer with a mix­ture of sus­pense, humour and bizarre ideas. One of the film’s zany ideas is the fact that the creatures in the story are giant man-eating insects. There are giant ants, wasps and cock­roaches that pop­u­late the streets and threaten humanity. This idea alone is already unusual, but the film goes fur­ther and shows how humans fight against these unusual enemies.

Another crazy idea of the film is the fact that Cooper and his com­rades-in-arms try to defeat the insects with unusual weapons. They make impro­vised weapons out of everyday objects like batons and hair­spray flamethrowers to fight off the giant creatures. This leads to some bizarre and com­ical moments as the group des­per­ately tries to stand up to the over­powering oppon­ents.

In addi­tion, the film is also known for its black humour. The dia­logues between the char­ac­ters are often sar­castic and ironic, which gives the film a cer­tain light­ness, although the threat of the insects is omni­present. The com­bin­a­tion of horror ele­ments and humorous inter­ludes makes “Infest­a­tion” an unusual and enter­taining exper­i­ence.
