Entomologist Colt left the firm of his ex Vicky's dad Russ and his ruthless partner Gary, in order to regain his scientific independence and ethical virginity. After people are found on several founds with strange bite-marks, which turn out to be the work genetically miss-manipulated locusts, Colt teams up again with Vicky, who works for the public health authorities. After analyzing the facts, they join the heroic, possibly hopeless fight to stop the locust swarm spreading and endangering millions in most of Northern America. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


The terrain shown at the end with the caption "Near Lafayette, Indiana" is not typical of that area of northwest Indiana, which tends to be very flat except on the banks of the Wabash river. The immediate Lafayette, Indiana area also is mostly urban and not as rural as pictured. See more »


Colt: Okay Vicky, look, there is a reason why the locusts did not attack us!
Vicky: Maybe we were just lucky.

and the 9th Plague is the film itself!
9 December 2005 | by DobraGolonkaSee all my reviews

I had to watch this film twice - simply because I fell asleep during the first viewing! It really is awful! The film is heavily dependant upon CGI throughout, but, unfortunately, they appear to have been composed on a ZX80 - they are diabolical.

And the acting??? That surely is a contradiction in terms! It is sooooooo wooden! If this film had been made in black and white 50 years ago, it might be classed as a decent B movie, but with today's standards? Absolute pap! 2/10 only because the first 5 minutes actually lull you into thinking it will be a decent movie to watch: at least, I was fooled! DG
