Storyline

An alien pod crash lands in the swamps, after which the local mosquitoes begin feeding on the alien corpses. This causes the mosquitoes to grow to massive sizes and develop an unquenchable hunger for blood. A mass swarm of these mutant insects attacks a Michigan national park in a brutal onslaught that kills the entire tourist population. The few unrelated survivors - two lovers, a meteorologist, a punk rock musician, and a gang of dangerous bank robbers on the run from police - must settle their differences and band together before nightfall, when the nocturnal mosquito swarm will return for more blood. Written by Tyler Wright

Trivia

Matt Hundley was not the first choice to do special effects for this film. Halfway through, the original special effects artist said "I'll be right back, I'm going to get a pack of smokes," and never came back. See more »

Goofs

When an animal increases in size, its weight increases by the cube of the increase, while surface area only increases by the square. That means the mutant mosquitoes would be trapped on the ground, helpless. Their legs would not support them, and their wings would not let them fly. See more »

Quotes

Parks USAF Meteor Chaser: [breathing] In the basement. Eggs, mosquito eggs. Hundreds of them, thousands of them.

Splendid schlock
3 August 1999 | by ShadiestSee all my reviews

What a tremendous achievement in American cinema! Did any of y'all know that you can hammer boards over windows without nails? Did you know that facial hair can disappear and reappear at random moments? Did you realize the safe haven that can be had in a bathtub? A perfect way to spend the day.
