James T. Callahan,
Problem teens in Los Angeles join an inner-city wilderness project in and attempt to get back in touch with life's priorities, led by do-gooders Holly and Charles. When they get to the campsite, they begin having problems adjusting to the wild life, particularly local marijuana growers using herbal steroids to accelerate plant growth, and the mutated ticks that the leaky steroid system has created.Written by

The film was made and released internationally under the title "Ticks," and the film was briefly test-marketed to U.S. theaters in 1993 under the title "Infested." It was changed back to "Ticks" for video and TV and became a minor cult classic under that name. See more »

Dad, please don't make me do this.
Tyler, it's for your own good. I checked out this program. Miss Lambert's helped a lot of kids. I... I think she can help you, too. Okay? Tyler?
[Tyler gets out of the truck looking back]
I'm doing this because I want you to get better.

They didn't really put a lot of thought into this movie.
It has so much going for it- First off, the great Clint Howard grows dope that creates big ticks that explode when stepped on. Later we get to see Carlton from "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air" getting attacked by said ticks. There's a dog that gets turned into pulp and a creepy hick who looks like an inbred Bruce Springsteen.
The cast features the scrumptious Ami Dolenz (wasted in a supporting role), a young Seth Green (showing none of the charm he would later in 'Austin Powers'), Rance Howard (Why wasn't Ron in this too?), and Peter Scolari, who should've had Tom Hanks' career.
But despite all this, this movie is really lame. It's slow, it looks crappy, and everything is confusing. Characters are just barely sketched out, which is okay for a horror movie, but then they don't kill any of them! Hardly anyone dies in this stinkfest! The make-up and Tick effects look pretty good, but the whole thing is edited so poorly you never get a good sense of what scenes are about.
And I might be going out on a limb here, but Carlton was NOT convincing as a street smart tough. "I thought I would get it in a drive-by shooting- but my dog would be all right!"
