Oh, man, there is almost nothing I love more than cracking open a bottle of wine (or vodka, always vodka) and watching a great B-movie (which would probably explain my addiction to SyFy). There is a certain kind of joy that can only be found in giggling wildly at the completely ludicrous storylines and over-the-top acting of a B-movie, and a horror/monster one, in particular.
Imagine my unbridled joy, then, at learning that XLrator Media has just released a new film for our viewing pleasure, which has already been circulating in the UK but will be hitting us stateside March 7th. Ready for the premise? Are you READY for it?
Yes, it's exactly what you think it is. You can not make this stuff up (Unless you're the scriptwriters at XLrator). In the slashfic mash-up style that B-movies seem to favor, it brings together two fantastically bad things and makes them exponentially worse: Wasps and burning alive where you stand.
"But...how?" you are surely asking, as you lean eagerly forward on the edge of your chair. "HOW?!"
Well, I'll let the plot synopsis answer:
When her father mysteriously disappears on an expedition, beautiful entomologist Gina Humphries (Dominika Juillet) and her fiery assistant, Rhonda (Nikolette Noel), set out to search the rain forests of Belize. Due to numerous robberies and assaults in the jungle, they are escorted by heavily-armed soldiers. Guerillas, lead by the infamous Jaguar, ambush the convoy and incite a bloody shootout. Just when things can’t get worse, a horde of murderous Dragon Wasps, massive flying bugs that shoot flame from their abdomens, swarms the soldiers. Now the military must defeat Jaguar’s bandits and survive the fearsome insect onslaught as they venture inside the Dragon Wasps’ hive.
Along with Juillet and Noel, also stars.
Oh, man. Corin Nemec? You KNOW it's going to be amazing.
