Storyline

The widow, Deputy Sheriff Jane Kozik, moves from Manhattan to Black Stone, New York, with her daughter Kelsey Kozik. There she expects to find a safe place to live. The day after moving, a homeless man is found dead in the tool shed of Jane's blind friend Beverly Rowe. Devin Hall and the entomologist Katherine Randell are summoned to help with the investigation. Devin is Jane's brother-in-law and former boyfriend, and Jane still has a crush on him. Meanwhile, Kelsey befriends the scientist Eli Giles, who has developed genetically modified wasps for the Army as a weapon, and now he is trying to revert the process. When the wasps attack Black Stone, Jane, Devin, and Eli team-up to attempt to destroy the swarm. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

At one point in the film, the camera pans up to reveal a street sign that reads Elm Street (or Elm St), a reference to costar Robert Englund's role in the "Nightmare on Elm Street" film franchise. See more »

Goofs

Jane Kozik says "Dr. Fogg was murdered. Take a look at that petechial hemorrhaging here" and points to the bruise on his neck. Dr. Fogg eyes are closed. A petechial hemorrhage is a tiny pinpoint red mark which occurs when blood leaks from the tiny capillaries in the eyes. The forensic pathologist usually needs a very good light source and maybe even a magnifying glass to detect petechial hemorrhages. They range in size from the size of a speck of dust to around two millimeters. It is true, however, that bruising or contusions on his neck can be a sign of strangulation, but that's a different buzz word. See more »

Quotes

Eli Giles: Nature can be that way, young lady. Nature can be awesome, as in inspiring awe. Not as in awesome, dude.

What a messy sting!
4 June 2009 | by manjodudeSee all my reviews

Probably the filmmakers tried to convey a decent story on rabid bees(or wasps whatever) that attack humans but the effort was absolutely disappointing. Average special effects and unbelievable, unconvincing or silly scenes spoil the complete picture and therefore any fair performances the actors came up with was of no use anyway. The attacks by the wasps could have been treated better - or should I say with more horror! Probably the only impressive performance is of the blind, elderly character essayed by Sheena Larkin. Actor Robert Englund best known for Nightmare on Elm street is forgettable here. This is one sting that induces more laughter than hurt!
