Storyline

Another ecological disaster results in mosquitoes growing to the size of bats (very rubbery, non-scary bats). Of course they have to suck a lot of blood. Humans have to find a way to fight back. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Unwatchable.
21 March 2003 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

I wonder how this film lost its rightful place in IMDB's "bottom 100" list. It is unworthy of the term "horror flick"; it's more of a character drama, which perhaps would be fine if the characters were even remotely interesting, but they are not. As for the special effects, when the mosquitos don't seem to be flying around held by invisible strings, they seem to be literally painted onto the film. "Skeeter" runs only 95 minutes, but they feel like four hours. Not recommended, even to my worst enemy. 0 out of 4.
