The widow, Deputy Sheriff Jane Kozik, moves from Manhattan to Black Stone, New York, with her daughter Kelsey Kozik. There she expects to find a safe place to live. The day after moving, a homeless man is found dead in the tool shed of Jane's blind friend Beverly Rowe. Devin Hall and the entomologist Katherine Randell are summoned to help with the investigation. Devin is Jane's brother-in-law and former boyfriend, and Jane still has a crush on him. Meanwhile, Kelsey befriends the scientist Eli Giles, who has developed genetically modified wasps for the Army as a weapon, and now he is trying to revert the process. When the wasps attack Black Stone, Jane, Devin, and Eli team-up to attempt to destroy the swarm. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Jane Kozik says "Dr. Fogg was murdered. Take a look at that petechial hemorrhaging here" and points to the bruise on his neck. Dr. Fogg eyes are closed. A petechial hemorrhage is a tiny pinpoint red mark which occurs when blood leaks from the tiny capillaries in the eyes. The forensic pathologist usually needs a very good light source and maybe even a magnifying glass to detect petechial hemorrhages. They range in size from the size of a speck of dust to around two millimeters. It is true, however, that bruising or contusions on his neck can be a sign of strangulation, but that's a different buzz word. See more »


Eli Giles: Nature can be that way, young lady. Nature can be awesome, as in inspiring awe. Not as in awesome, dude.

not sure who has been rating this movie--my guess is people with a vested interest. it is NOT a 7 star movie. very slow. nothing happens for the first hour. didn't anybody notice that half the town is walking around like zombies with huge pustules on their faces? will the hot entymologist/evil spy get it on with the hot exterminator, the twin brother of the hot widow's dead husband? "you're an exterminator. she's an etymologist. you could talk about bugs." then it gets really bad. some passable actors, but they're wasted here. i think somebody said "nobody's mixed killer wasps and zombies yet. let's start there and make it up as we go along, then pour some sappy moralistic ketchup on this bad goulash at the end. don't flush any money on this.
