MANSQUITO TRAILER FLYS IN
Mansquito! It's a name that screams either comic book supervillain or Sci-Fi Channel premiere movie. In this case, Sci-Fi Channel premiere movie. Now despite the fact that this flick isn?t going to debut on the Sci-Fi Channel until sometime next Spring and was produced by Nu Image, I'm still going to talk about it just so that I can keeping saying Mansquito. If you haven't heard about Mansquito already then let me fill you in.
A scientist trying to develop a vaccine for the dreaded West Nile Virus is conducting experiments on death row inmates only to have one go berserk in the lab. Before you know it, they've both been infected with some science gone horribly wrong. Soon, the already a psychopath to turn into a mutated half-man/half-mosquito creature with blood on its mind for more reasons than just thirst quenching. As for the lady scientist, she's also experiencing a slower version of the same mutation and it's a race against time to kill Mansquito and find a cure for the scientist. Oh, did I mention that Mansquito also comes back looking to mate with the beautiful scientist?
Mansquito stars Musetta Vander as the lady scientist. You might know her from her role as one of the Sirens in Oh Brother, Where Are Thou? and as Sindel in Mortal Kombat: Annihilation. Also trailing Mansquito's trail of carnage is a hardboiled cop played Corin Nemec, aka the poor man's Frank Whaley, best remembered as the star of 'Parker Lewis Can't Lose'. Sitting in the director's chair is Tibor Takas, best known to horror fans as the maker of The Gate movies. He also most recently made Killer Rats, but we won't talk about that.
The Mansquito itself was designed by Tony Gardner, whose work can be seen on screens now in Seed of Chucky. Kind of looks like The Fly's obese cousin if you ask me.
But why ask me when you can actually see Mansquito in action right now. The trailer for the film - complete with the original and infinately less imaginative Mosquito Man title - is now online. Click here to check it out, and judge for yourself whether or not Mansquito is going to suck (pun intended).
