The Deadly Mantis

The Deadly Mantis ★★

Another movie from Best Buy's Classic Sci-Fi collection. In this one a gigantic praying mantis thaws in the Arctic....then starts an United States tour that features trips to New Orleans, Washington DC, Maryland and finally New York City. Along the way the "Deadly Mantis" kills many people and wrecks planes and trains. This one has a stellar 4.5 on IMDB and that seems about right. Movie is filled with tons of stock footage....the praying mantis is pretty weak....and the acting is one step above comatose. I have watched 3 of the 10 movies in this collection....so far this has been the worst one. Final thought: Don't waste your time.
