Trivia

In the scene where the mosquitoes attack Mike Hard, a part was originally made where the bugs land on him at a far away angle. However, the puppet mosquitoes kept hitting him in the head by accident. After almost 10 takes, Mike Hard was developing a concussion, so the scene was scrapped. See more »

Goofs

An oft-quoted rule of nature states that for an animal's increase in size, the weight increases by the cube of the increase while surface area only increases by the square. This means that neither the mosquitoes' legs nor their wings would be able to support them or let them fly. They would be helpless, trapped on the ground. See more »

Cut it a little slack
23 March 2002 | by (Gainesville, FL) – See all my reviews

Come on, it's a B-movie, it's supposed to be fun. And it was fun. It's obviously very low-budget, but the acting and dialogue were at the point where you could honestly laugh with the movie and at the movie so much that eventually you couldn't tell the difference. In his scathing review, the anonymous watcher said that the man survived the explosion by hiding in a bathtub. It was a refrigerator, man. If not much more believable, at least it's ingenius. I may be a little biased because one of the actors and writers is a friend of mine, but I was enjoying the movie before I even realized he was involved with it. I wouldn't recommend buying it or anything, but if you notice it on the sci-fi channel, it's not a bad way to spend two hours on a rainy afternoon.
