Growth is a story about a small, inbred island community that strikes it rich creating genetically-altered pearls, and selling them to dumb, rich chicks for millions of dollars. I've never understood pearls. Diamonds, yes. Rubies and emeralds, sure. Pearls just always look cheap and gaudy to me, and now that I know that evil parasites live inside of them, I say to hell with the pearl industry!
|Yep, that's what lives inside of every pearl on the planet!|
|That's what you get for meddling.|
|Someone is getting their ass kicked and someone is getting laid.|
|...and it's much just like this.|
|Lady Gaga having her makeup applied?|
|At least we got to see some nice pokies...|
Growth is better than your average bear when it comes to the parasite/body invasion sub-genre. It reminded me a lot of movies like Slither and Night of the Creeps (sans comedy), with touches of The Wicker Man or Harper's Island thrown in to make it interesting. If you like the aforementioned types of Horror flicks, then I say see this one when you can, and do your best not to squirm too much. Good luck with that.
Mircea Monroe was the sexy chick in this movie... until I saw the way that Nora Kilpatrick was going after that microphone with her mouth in the pic below. She really looks like she needs that thing in her mouth, so, she might be just be the sexy one after all!
