Did You Know?

Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Jane Kozik says "Dr. Fogg was murdered. Take a look at that petechial hemorrhaging here" and points to the bruise on his neck. Dr. Fogg eyes are closed. A petechial hemorrhage is a tiny pinpoint red mark which occurs when blood leaks from the tiny capillaries in the eyes. The forensic pathologist usually needs a very good light source and maybe even a magnifying glass to detect petechial hemorrhages. They range in size from the size of a speck of dust to around two millimeters. It is true, however, that bruising or contusions on his neck can be a sign of strangulation, but that's a different buzz word.See more »

Solid creature feature, 11 May 2015
Author: GL84 from Los Angeles, Ca

Adjusting to life in a small town, the discovery of wasps genetically- engineered for a secret government agency as the perfect killing machine and forces the residents to set out to destroy them before they succumb to the deadly creatures.

This was a pleasantly enjoyable creature feature. One of the strong points is the intriguing story, though this a little cliché the way it's done here is really great as this one decides to utilize a different format. There's a big change away from the usual mad-scientist- genetically-modifies-animals-into-killers routine, and decides to make them the carriers of the virus that turns the victims into drones that contain the creatures before being born, which sets up a rather nice atmosphere during the beginning by showcasing the drones mindlessly wandering around town with the buzzing going on in the background. The slow-burning mystery doesn't hurt either, as there's some nice work to be had from how it handles these scenes, from the fruits and the dead bodies appearing and disappearing, as these parts actually manage to come together to have a really nice set-up that drives the action in here. There's some really good swarming going on at the beginning to the attack in the cornfield and the whole finale, from the attack at the bridge to the revelations at the church, and everything that happens in the factory at the end are all nicely done and make for some great moments. The other good part here is the insects in here look good enough, not really obvious CGI in the glances afforded at them which actually works nicely. These here are the film's best points as there wasn't a whole lot really wrong with this one. One of the problems was that there's a big twist at the end is plain ridiculous and not all that needed. There's a lot of effort throughout which put the conspirator as one of the good guys, yet this one decides to suddenly twist all that around merely because it wants to do something shocking. The other flaw here is the extremely clichéd manner of some of the plot points, as the deadly-creatures-as-government-super-killers angle comes up as does the main engineering party trying to stop them part. There's tons upon tons of clichés to be found here, some which hurt the film, others that give it some familiarity, but overall this one isn't that bad.

Rated R: Graphic Violence and Language.
