Great Scott! But it's starting to seem that the Sci-Fi Channel produces these things like link sausage, one after after another after another and all pretty much the same.
Take a cliché hero from column A, a heroine from column B, inject giant mutant X (insect, spider, snake etc), mix will with lots of faceless police/soldiers/general public with a collective I.Q. five points under room temperature as monster fodder and boil in pot until rank.
The only thing they left out of this one (other than an interesting story) was the evil rich guy who wants to exploit the monster of the week.
Oh... and by the way, male mosquitoes don't drink blood, only female mosquitoes do.
