Police lieutenant detective Thomas 'Thom' Randall's steady girl-friend, Dr. Jennifer 'Jen' Allen, is Dr. Aaron Michaels's main assistant on his pharmaceutical firm Bellion's research program to cure the highly contagious, fatal infection Guinin. A convicted murderer, whom Thom arrested, is one of their special drug test subjects, but escapes. The convict and Jen are affected by radioactively altered DNA from an experimental reactor used on mosquitoes which transfer quinine. The convict soon mutates into a mosquito-like monster, which sucks its victims dry. By the time Thom and his junior murder brigade partner Charlie Morrison figure out what happens, Jen starts mutating herself. Written by
Once in a while a movie comes by that is so campy and fun that it forever finds a place in your heart. This could almost be one of those movies if the production wasn't so lackluster and straight-forward. The idea is delightfully insane, but where does it really go from there? The whole movie bathes in a rather unpleasant Eurotrash-atmosphere, probably because most of the dirty work was outsourced to Bulgaria to cut costs. Their cheap labour actually looks semi-professional, which is the absolute worst thing you can have in a movie about a killer half man/half mosquito. Corin Nemec plays the hero in this movie, to which I can only say that I'm glad he's working. It beats infomercials, not by much though. "Mansquito" is in many ways frustrating, because it could have gone so much more over the top. There are a couple of good action scenes though, and it does have the merit of an insanely high body count, so I guess I still kinda like it.
