Top-secret lab experiments have resulted in genetically-engineered locusts that devour the flesh from any humans in their path. When the swarm escapes, a determined researcher heads a team to stop the menace before it consumes the world.
“Deep in rural Idaho, a swarm of genetically-enhanced Locusts escape from the government lab that theyu0026#39;re being held in to wreck havoc on and eat the skin of pretty much everything they come across. Itu0026#39;s up to local organic pesticide inventor Colt (Dan Cortese AKA: Dan Dan the Whopper Man Aka: Tony the Mimbo) and his girlfriend, Vicky (Dexteru0026#39;s Julie Benz, who shouldu0026#39;ve known better) to find a way to take care of this u0026#39;8th Plaqueu0026#39; u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFilled to the brim with extremely hokey CGI (locust, blood, helicopters u0026amp; even fire) and not much else, this is definitely not one of the better Sci-Fi Original films (I outright refuse to use the word u0026#39;SyFyu0026#39;) that Iu0026#39;ve seen by a long shot. The acting is bad all the way around, a very unconvincing story, and the fact that the film goes on too long all combine to make a rather unpleasant viewing experience for anyone, like myself, gullible enough to sit through it. David Keith should have been a Lord of Discipline and said no to his role in the film as both he and Jeff Fahey embarrass themselves here.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMy Grade: D- u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eImage Entertainment DVD Extras: 3 short (and rather lame) u0026#39;before u0026amp; afteru0026#39; special effects shots”
