The widow, Deputy Sheriff Jane Kozik, moves from Manhattan to Black Stone, New York, with her daughter Kelsey Kozik. There she expects to find a safe place to live. The day after moving, a homeless man is found dead in the tool shed of Jane's blind friend Beverly Rowe. Devin Hall and the entomologist Katherine Randell are summoned to help with the investigation. Devin is Jane's brother-in-law and former boyfriend, and Jane still has a crush on him. Meanwhile, Kelsey befriends the scientist Eli Giles, who has developed genetically modified wasps to the army as a weapon, and now he is trying to revert the process. When the wasps attack Black Stone, Jane, Devin and Eli team-up to attempt to destroy the swarm. Written by

A small town is overrun by wasps that not only sting, but actually infest themselves inside of human hosts...
I appreciate that Robert Englund not only appears -- and for much more than a cameo -- but is actually given a decent character. This film is nothing amazing, but Englund treated it with respect and he comes across as both devious and mysterious, while still likable.
This film has some issues with continuity -- for example, the question of who is dead. Twice the sheriff seems to be aware that people are dead without having actually witnessed the scenes we (the viewers) saw. Just because it happens earlier in the script does not mean all the characters suddenly are aware of it.
Even more odd is the relationship issue -- a woman dates a guy, leaves him for his identical twin brother... the second brother dies and she is again interested in the first. Dating brothers is awkward enough... this just steps it up to a new level. (And unless Sarah Allen ages really, really well, she seems too young to have a 10-year old daughter.)
