Storyline

A nature field researcher is investigating the strange extinction of small animals and insects in the area, which indicates that something is wrong. His suspicions are soon to be proven right when he meets May, who lives in a cabin in the forest nearby. May says that her house is infested by small creatures that she thinks are mice or rats. When the couple search the house further, they notice that they're not rodents or insects. They are fast evolving lizards that have the appetite for animals and humans, no matter what size their prey are... Written by distant thunder <dthunder@dlc.fi>

Cult Classic Horror Flick
16 July 2006 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

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.
