If you’re not a regular viewer of the fine cinematic offerings of the Sci-Fi Channel, with films like Mansquito, Skeeter and the like; and since the last couple of Starship Troopers films have gone straight to video, it might have been a while since your last giant bug flick. Luckily, there’s a new film coming out that promises to provide the large insect fix, Infestation.
Starring Fanboys‘ Chris Marquette, Ray Wise, Brooke Nevin (The 4400), Linda Park (Star Trek: Enterprise), Infestation looks to have plenty of monstrous bugs that deliver monstrous bug explosions and campy humor. Quiet Earth has the first trailer of the film, which breaks down like so:
Our hero, Cooper, awakes to find himself nauseous, weak and covered
in webbing, hanging from the ceiling of an office where, just minutes
ago, he started his new job. As he struggles out of his slimy prison he
comes face to face with his opponent – a grotesque, powerful and very
angry bug. All 3 ft of it… And so begins a hideous, nail-biting, all-action adventure to find a
safe haven while constantly outwitting an infestation of monstrous
proportions. As Cooper embarks on his journey, he befriends a ragtag
group of survivors including Sara, a feisty attractive female. Although
the situation is dire, Cooper can’t help himself from trying to solve
his dating problem while trying to save his life. Will they make it to
safety before they are picked off ? And what other surprises are in
store for our unlikely heroes?
Infestation is directed by Kyle Rankin (The Battle of Shaker Heights).
