It comes off smarter and creepier than I recall the original, less about scares than a sustained atmosphere of eerie unease and skittery threats.

Combustible Celluloid

It's clear now that Del Toro's favorite themes and symbols were already in place, with the vast underground setting, machinery, and man's interference in the supernatural order of things -- not to mention a talent for pure terror.

Del Toro does not make Tyler a symbol of science gone out of control or of science for greed, instead he makes her a scientist who in doing good has created a monster and has to live with that guilt.

Del Toro did what he set out to do, make an intelligent, enjoyable 'big bug' film.

Del Toro proves that he doesn't just have a way with the poetic stuff: He can construct a nail-biter with the best of them.
