A nature field researcher is investigating the strange extinction of small animals and insects in the area, which indicates that something is wrong.

Several times near the end of the film the hand guns are obviously out of ammo, but are not in the next shot. This happens, for instance, when Uri is shooting in the bedroom, and again when Marshall is using the gun in the living room. See more »
This movie is a cult classic with a unique idea for a horror flick --namely fast evolving animals that spit venom and become increasingly difficult to kill. The monsters are obviously low budget, but the acting was entertaining and I couldn't turn the channel once I started watching.
The attractive, tainted hero, Pam Gidley, is hiding out at her mom's cabin in the woods. She is joined by a grad student biologist studying animals in the area. Later her menacing ex shows up and falls victim to the little monsters.
I hadn't seen Pam Gidley before, and wasn't too surprised to find that she's done a fair amount of other work on TV (CSI) and other movies.
