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In the scene where the mosquitoes attack Mike Hard, a part was originally made where the bugs land on him at a far away angle.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

Take it for What it's Worth
19 May 1999 | by See all my reviews

Beginning with a giant mosquito smashing against a window, this pseudo-horror/spoof starts with a bang. In addition to a main character who resembles the "Chef" from South Park, this movie also stars Gunnar Hansen (Leatherface from the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre). Furthermore, the editing is so bad that one character (the "bumbling deputy") actually has a beard in one scene, and does not in the next. The acting in this film is so bad that you'll constantly find yourself laughing. If you enjoyed Army of Darkness, Mosquito is a must see. I would also recommend "Jack Frost," "Humongous" and "Slugs."
