An alien starship dumps a space-trash in a swamp in a U.S. National Park. Some mosquitoes begin to feed from the alien's corpses, causing them to grow to the size of a vulture. These mutant insects became very aggressive, killing every human being they find. Will the few survivors fight successfully against this nightmare...? Written by

The phonograph record on the turntable in the abandoned house is "(Ten) Years Together-- The Best of Peter, Paul and Mary." The LP was issued by Warner Brothers Records in 1970. See more »
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 »

Then we get rid of it. Whatever it takes.
Hendricks the Park Ranger:
I knew it! I knew you were gonna say that. I could have stayed in my little cubby hole under that boat, till the cops showed up. But noooooooo... you guys had to come along and find me. And NOW I'm on a mission to save the world from giant mosquitos! Man, the late show doesn't get any better than this.

I didn't think you could make a career out of crap, but sadly I've been proven wrong. Mosquito's director, Gary Jones, has made two more of these oversized animal movies! Incidentally, the flick was written by the "legendary" Gunnar Hansen, who is also one of the main characters. I could dog Mosquito pretty hard, but for the straight-to-video huge animal/insect sub-genre, it's probably the best (with Ticks coming in as a close second). It's just so funny. I can't tell if the laughs are intentional or not. There are some things that are so absolutely hilarious that you have to believe they wrote it that way to get a laugh, but you're never quite sure. Here's the best dialogue shared between our characters: "If I wasn't having such a sh*tty day, I'd kill you right now." "Men a lot better than you have said that to me before, many times." Who has said that to you??? I really want to know. Another favorite line is when Gunnar picks up the chainsaw. "I haven't handled one of these babies in twenty years." That is, of course, a reference to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and I have to believe that it's the only line Gunnar actually wrote. And Steve Dixon is Chef from South Park. Period. If you want to have a fun night, catch Mosquito. Hell, I own it.
Here's a note to half of the other reviewers: Can you not tell the difference between a bathtub and a fridge??????
