I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy it.
18 September 2001 | by (Kimberling City, MO.) – See all my reviews

I watched this one late last night. With a name like "Skeeter", I was expecting another b-flick that would have me rolling with unintentional laughter. While there were a few (the dialogue slips sometimes) I found "Skeeter" to be a somewhat enjoyable monster movie that kept me entertained all the way through. It didn't have the standard "look" of a straight to video flick, but the effects were a little cheap in places (you could tell they used two screens) but other than that, the acting is quite good, the directing was competent (could've been a little tighter) and the leads were pretty likeable.
