Howler of a giant mosquito movie...
This movie has everything. First there is deputy Boone (Jim Youngs) doing a marginal Clint Eastwood imitation. Then, there is a crazed (is there any other kind?) Michael J. Pollard feeding his pet giant mosquito by letting it suck blood from his own arm. Not enough for you? How about Charles Napier playing a lecherous, corrupt sheriff? What's not to like? Besides the numerous eccentric characters, unintentional humor abounds, starting with the mosquito's which look like "Creepy Crawlers" on steroids, and capped by our hero taking time out to weld together a flamethrower while his girlfriend is trapped in a mine with the giant mosquito's. Creative location photography, decent character development, and an interesting soundtrack, can't overcome the obvious. This is not a good movie. - MERK
