Storyline

An alien pod crash lands in the swamps, after which the local mosquitoes begin feeding on the alien corpses. This causes the mosquitoes to grow to massive sizes and develop an unquenchable hunger for blood. A mass swarm of these mutant insects attacks a Michigan national park in a brutal onslaught that kills the entire tourist population. The few unrelated survivors - two lovers, a meteorologist, a punk rock musician, and a gang of dangerous bank robbers on the run from police - must settle their differences and band together before nightfall, when the nocturnal mosquito swarm will return for more blood.

Looking for movie
15 November 2005 | by geneveveSee all my reviews

I have seen this movie and it is a definite B movie. But I thought it was good for a B. It is pretty cheesy but that is what you come to expect from a B movie. They definitely used some pretty bad actors, but that is a B. You come to expect that. Gunnar was great in this as he was in Texas Chainsaw Massacre. They were both about the same quality of films, but we like those kind of movies once in a while. This is a pretty hard to find movie and I think it is out of print. Not too sure. We are looking for it in DVD format. If anyone knows where we can get it. Please let us know at geneveve@aol.com. I don't want to spend a ton of money, I would like to spend less that 50.00. Let me know. Thanks
