Did You Know?

Trivia

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 »

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 »

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).
