A scientist tries to save his son from cancer but his experiments turn him into a shark-man instead. A group of people from a pharmaceutical corporation are sent to the mad doctor's island to investigate his activities.
Police lieutenant detective Thomas 'Thom' Randall's steady girl-friend, Dr. Jennifer 'Jen' Allen, is Dr. Aaron Michaels's main assistant on his pharmaceutical firm Bellion's research program to cure the highly contagious, fatal infection Guinin. A convicted murderer, whom Thom arrested, is one of their special drug test subjects, but escapes. The convict and Jen are affected by radioactively altered DNA from an experimental reactor used on mosquitoes which transfer quinine. The convict soon mutates into a mosquito-like monster, which sucks its victims dry. By the time Thom and his junior murder brigade partner Charlie Morrison figure out what happens, Jen starts mutating herself.Written by
So I've pretty much gave up on believing the DVD boxes at the rental store,especially the horror ones.They promise scares and terror and end up leaving you feeling mad and ripped off.
But the box for this one didn't even promise much.I guess with a name like "Mosquito Man" there ain't no use in pretending you're gonna be good.But I didn't care about the read on the box.I thought maybe we would go old school,back to the 80's in horror,when all the rage was some big cool looking monster,like Rawhead Rex or Pumpkinhead.
OK,first off this movie is nothing but a blatant rip-off of "The Fly" but without the cool gore or anything else that made "The Fly" at least watchable.When an experiment to save the world from some mosquito carried virus goes wrong a guy is mutated into a giant mosquito.Really.
So he kills people by sucking them dry of blood .A cop decides that the dead bodies turning up around town aren't being killed by your average wacko and the cop is determined to find what is killing all these folks.
The acting is bad.The plot is worse.Some of the special effects were decent.But the Mosquito itself looked really cheesy at times,actually all the time, but sometimes it looked worse than others.
Stupid ,plodding and nothing cool here at all.The only saving grace was that it was a fairly short movie.No nudity and very little cursing for some reason.The most cursing was from me, I suppose, at having been disappointed again by yet another cruddy horror movie.
Don't rent this mess.Even if you could see it for free it would still be a rip-off.
