Storyline

Entomologist Colt left the firm of his ex Vicky's dad Russ and his ruthless partner Gary, in order to regain his scientific independence and ethical virginity. After people are found on several founds with strange bite-marks, which turn out to be the work genetically miss-manipulated locusts, Colt teams up again with Vicky, who works for the public health authorities. After analyzing the facts, they join the heroic, possibly hopeless fight to stop the locust swarm spreading and endangering millions in most of Northern America. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

The terrain shown at the end with the caption "Near Lafayette, Indiana" is not typical of that area of northwest Indiana, which tends to be very flat except on the banks of the Wabash river. The immediate Lafayette, Indiana area also is mostly urban and not as rural as pictured. See more »

Vicky: No, no you're not wasting your time Colt. Getting people to change isn't easy, they have to want to. It takes a long time.

well it IS a plague
24 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Deep in rural Idaho, a swarm of genetically-enhanced Locusts escape from the government lab that they're being held in to wreck havoc on and eat the skin of pretty much everything they come across. It's up to local organic pesticide inventor Colt (Dan Cortese AKA: Dan Dan the Whopper Man Aka: Tony the Mimbo) and his girlfriend, Vicky (Dexter's Julie Benz, who should've known better) to find a way to take care of this '8th Plaque'

Filled to the brim with extremely hokey CGI (locust, blood, helicopters & even fire) and not much else, this is definitely not one of the better Sci-Fi Original films (I outright refuse to use the word 'SyFy') that I've seen by a long shot. The acting is bad all the way around, a very unconvincing story, and the fact that the film goes on too long all combine to make a rather unpleasant viewing experience for anyone, like myself, gullible enough to sit through it. David Keith should have been a Lord of Discipline and said no to his role in the film as both he and Jeff Fahey embarrass themselves here.

My Grade: D-

Image Entertainment DVD Extras: 3 short (and rather lame) 'before & after' special effects shots
