Another ecological disaster results in mosquitoes growing to the size of bats (very rubbery, non-scary bats). Of course they have to suck a lot of blood. Humans have to find a way to fight back. Written by John Sacksteder <>

My dear god!
18 January 2002 | by (canada) – See all my reviews

I myself, am a B movie fan. I usually enjoy films like this. But this one was so bad that it was not even worth the two bucks to rent it. Other movie's like this such as 'Mostquito' are alotta of fun to watch because of the poor acting and bad special effects. But this is just boring and terrible. From the cover and the back of the box this movie appears to be a sure success but nope sorry, don't waste your money. If your looking for something to rent like this rent 'Mosqioto'.

Rating * out of ****
