When I saw the previews for this movie, I was like, "You have GOT to be kidding me!" It was several months before i saw it was on TV and i decided to check it out to see how bad it really was.
Full summary and spoilers below
OK, there's a widespread disease going on, and its spread by mosquitoes. So there's the all important pharmaceutical company that is trying to make a cure. How? By using radioactive blue goo, they put it in a glass case with infected mosquitoes, with the theory that it was cause their DNA to mutate and develop an anti-virus. Got it so far? Cause the female doctor, Dr. Allen(Muretta Vander) explains it in a few sentences but i had to think about it to get it.
Well, enter a death row inmate, Ray (Austin Jordan) under the orders of her evil boss to be a guinea pig. The prisoner breaks out of his cuffs, and takes the Vander's assistant hostage. In an attempt to save her friend, Vander lets the prisoner into the lab, but he shoots the assistant anyway. Then a shoot out blows up the reactor that held the goo and mosquitoes. Blue goo gets everywhere, mostly on the prisoner, but a little bit gets on Allen's arm.
Fast forward a bit, the prisoner escapes through the sewers and begins to mutate into a giant 'Mansquito" The two cops on the scene of the lab shootout, Morrison and Randall (Patrick Dreikass, Vander's BF and Corin Nemee) are on the move to capture the escaped prisoner. Detective Morrison takes Dr. Allen home and she has a few moments of examining her arm where the blue goo was. The next day, Dr Allen is picking up blood packs and sees some on her glove and before she can stop herself, licks it up. She stops and reflects for a moment, but is interrupted by her boss. Her drunk boss accuses Dr. Allen of wrecking the company and after she storms out, he becomes dinner. Randall takes Allen out to dinner and but doesn't notice a few quirky things. She orders her steak very rare, is constantly sniffing the flower in her drink, adds a ton of sugar to her coffee. On the way out, she smells something appealing, and we cut to a shot of mutant Ray hiding in the bushes.
Obviously they didn't have an entomologist on staff, since male mosquitoes are the ones that love fruit and flowers, while the females suck blood.
Mutant Ray continues his rampage as he goes through a shacktown. Meanwhile Dr Allen is consuming chocolate and sugar. Her sex drive increases too, and her detective boyfriend is all to eager to oblige. She scratches him and starts to suck his blood but fortunately the phone rings. She's appalled at herself and vomits once Randall leaves.
Randall investigates the shacktown and meets up with the mutant Ray. Gun doesn't work, hitting him doesn't work, but guess what, a TASER scare him away. He then make the connection that the explosion altered Ray's DNA. Charlie of course doesn't believe him, and Randall goes to see Allen for advice. Allen meanwhile examines her blood under a scope and sees it mutating. She flips out a bit, but then sees Mutant Ray, who somehow got into the lab. She pulls back from him but as he gets closer she gets a whiff of him and for a moment is turned on, and then faints. Randall comes in, and finds Allen starting to change. He rushes her to the hospital while Mutant Ray follows. Cue the entrance of more snacks, I mean cops, and more carnage ensues as Mutant Ray fights his way in. SWAT team, security guards, even poor Charlie, is part of the carnage. Allen manages to grab her clothes and escape. Randall searches the hospital and comes upon the lone female security guard that managed to escape. He walks in on Mansquito hoarding the bloodbank, and fights a grenade at the nearby oxygen tanks, ('Hey, Mansquito!!!), causing a big explosion.
Is it all over? Big explosions normally signal the end of horror movies. But Randall staggers up from the wreckage looking for Allen, and he rushes off to the lab. Meanwhile, Mansquito also rises. Allen is still in pain and is watching herself transform. She picks up a glass case of mosquitos, supposedly the ones with the cure; takes them to the roof and opens the case. She heads back to the lab and draws up a syringe of poison. Randall stops her from killing herself as Mansquito burts in. He proceeds to beat the crap out of Randall, when Allen lets out a loud alienlike scream. (Mosquitos scream?) That gets Mansquito's attention and she escapes out through the sewers, then attacks Mansquito with a pipe. Randall jumps on Mansquito and uses the taser again but is thrown off.. Allen has mosquito strength now, and fights him. He tries to fly away, but she grabs him. She yanks out a power cord and electrocutes both of them. Cut to Randall writing up to a report, and there's a news broadcast on about how the virus had seemingly disappeared. We hear in voice-over how he lose everything he cared about, but with every end there is a new beginning and we fade to black.
Not too bad, but not the greatest. Not bad for a lazy afternoon or evening or if you're all alone and have nothing to do. Lot of plot holes, and a VERY lame ending but what can you expect from a movie with this name? Just knowing that only female mosquitos suck blood blows the whole concept of the movie. Funfor a laugh, or for you and your buddies having a bad horror movie fest.
