Storyline

Entomologist Colt left the firm of his ex Vicky's dad Russ and his ruthless partner Gary, in order to regain his scientific independence and ethical virginity.

After analyzing the facts, they join the heroic, possibly hopeless fight to stop the locust swarm spreading and endangering millions in most of Northern America. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

The terrain shown at the end with the caption "Near Lafayette, Indiana" is not typical of that area of northwest Indiana, which tends to be very flat except on the banks of the Wabash river. The immediate Lafayette, Indiana area also is mostly urban and not as rural as pictured. See more »

downright awful
28 January 2006 | by jack7See all my reviews

Man. Either David Keith and Jeff Fahey are that poor, or they love acting so much they don't care what is involved. Either answer is tragic. Worse than tragic. Keith did Lord of Discipline, and Jeff Fahey was in Silverado. What were they thinking. Of course I couldn't watch the whole thing. I was too stunned that these two actors were actually in this movie. Then I saw the advertisement for Swarmed, on next. Swarmed, starring Carol Alt and Tim Thomerson, the guy from Cherry 2000 and Trancers, both cinematic masterpieces compared to Swarmed and Locusts: The 8th Plague. I think the 8th plague is the horrifyingly awful made for TV computer special effects sci fi movies that have come out over the past 3 years...this century's B Horror flicks, only worse because they are so shameful and unoriginal. If actors find it hard to act in front of a blue or green screen for such movies as Star Wars and so on, then the actors for these TV sci fi flicks must find it dizzying to act in front of everything regular whilst the special effects crew adds on the monsters using computers when the rest of the set has gone home for the day. Even helicopter explosions were phoned in. C'mon, man. Just awful stuff. Steer clear if you value your time.
