During the scene where the two fishermen are attacked in their boat, Matt Hundley, the special effects man on the film, was chosen to be the anchor in the water, with weights tied to his feet, to hold the boat steady. Matt informed everyone that he couldn't swim but he was chosen to do it anyway. See more »
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 »
giant killer mosquitoes....what more could you want
This is a film for people who, like me, have seen the art in really poor film-making. Some films really do make an art form of the tacky storyline and cheesy script....this is a classic of the genre. It is full of humorous references for the true horror junkie and doesn't pretend to be anything it isn't. A film like this could go two ways...it could either try to take itself seriously and unless masterfully achieved it'll fall flat on its face, or it can step back and take a good, long, honest look at what its really got going for it and try to pull it off with its tongue firmly in its cheek. With a little more audacity some of the deaths could have achieved cult status (one certainly springs to mind)...but hey, with such a vast array of acting talent (Gunnar Hansen of Texas Chainsaw fame being the shining light, and Steve Dixon as Parks also doing an admirable job) and plenty of hillbilly gags, the obligatory pervert-cum-hero this is a must watch for the truly awful film fan...if you liked this watch mutator; awful film, great deaths.
