puts a new low to film making!!!!!
25 February 2003 | by (pembroke,massachusetts.) – See all my reviews

'skeeters' is just what you would expect-- campy acting, lame dialogue, okay special effects, bad finale, etc. There are a bunch of characters that die in predictable, boring death scenes and the stop-motion mosquitos that were used for this movie that look like they pre-date Ray Harryhausen........... Well, thats b-movies for you!!!
