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In the scene where the mosquitoes attack Mike Hard, a part was originally made where the bugs land on him at a far away angle.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

Mosquitos don't lay their eggs on dry surfaces as depicted in the movie. They lay their eggs in murky, watery places, such as swamps. See more »

The funniest movie ever.
31 May 1999 | by (Cincinnati, Ohio) – See all my reviews

I consider myself fortunate to have caught "Mosquito" on a Sunday matinee. The opening scene depicts a huge mosquito smashing against a car windshield and the acting only gets worse from there. We get to see the "deputy" with a full beard in one scene lose the beard when the camera cuts back to him (stellar editing). We also get to see the main character who is the human incarnation of South Park's "Chef." My sides split when Gunnar Hansen (a.k.a. Letherface) picks up a chainsaw and says: "I haven't handled one of these things in 20 years....feels good." A commonly-used, extremely cheesy line is also: "..if I wasn't having such a bad day, I'd kill you." Anyway, go rent this, but you might have some trouble finding it (try a mom 'n pop video store).
