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.Written by
Director Gary Jones planned a sequel for 1998, but scrapped it due to negative reviews. Jones now claims he is writing a screenplay for his "long lost" sequel. See more »
When an animal increases in size, its weight increases by the cube of the increase, while surface area only increases by the square. That means the mutant mosquitoes would be trapped on the ground, helpless. Their legs would not support them, and their wings would not let them fly. See more »

Then we get rid of it. Whatever it takes.
Hendricks the Park Ranger:
I knew it! I knew you were gonna say that. I could have stayed in my little cubby hole under that boat, till the cops showed up. But noooooooo... you guys had to come along and find me. And NOW I'm on a mission to save the world from giant mosquitos! Man, the late show doesn't get any better than this.

Either except it as a cheesy romp and love it or take it seriously and hate it
This movie is in constant rotation on SciFi and its another one of those movies that I stop at each time its on. The plot has badly done giant mosquitoes attacking people in the country side. They have been mutated after feeding on the blood of dead aliens...I know you're shocked, you were expecting a high class movie (even with the title Mosquito) and instead you got a very silly movie played (reasonably) straight by everyone involved. Clearly the cast and crew knew this was a silly idea, but they milk it for all its worth turning the attack scenes into something you both wince at (for the idea of it) and groan at (the silliness of the execution). This is one of the rare modern attempts at a drive in movie that walks the fine line between being serious and being mocking to create something thats enjoyable despite the dumbness of it all. If you can take it on its own level its worth two bags of popcorn and a couple of sodas. If you can't take it for what it it is then you're in for a long painful viewing experience.
9 out of 10 on the brain dead fun-o-meter.
