4.0 out of 5 stars Low-budget insect horror that entertains, August 12, 2013
This review is from: Deadly Swarm [DVD] (DVD)
If you've ever seen a Sci-Fi Channel movie from back in the day, then you know already what kind of production quality to expect. But even though they are usually lower-budget films, they can still be fun. Take, for example, DEADLY SWARM, an insect-filled horror flick from 2003. This movie, while not good enough to win any awards, is entertaining and even almost clean enough to be dubbed a `family-friendly' film...almost being the key word there.

Notice above how I used `Sci-Fi Channel' instead of `SyFy Channel'. This is because the name change didn't occur until just a few years ago. As you can see, this film is 10 years old, and was thus presented during the golden age of the channel's film library.

DEADLY SWARM has some decent acting and the premise is pretty cool for the horror genre. I mean, how could any horror fan not want to see a swarm of killer wasps sting people to death? It was definitely a major selling point for me.

But unfortunately, we don't get to see any of that happen. I'm sure it was due to budget constraints, but all we get to see are a couple of bodies that have swollen welts on them to indicate where the stings occurred. As a result, gore-hounds wanting carnage will not be happy with this flick.

However, if you can look past that, DEADLY SWARM is sure to entertain for fans of low-budget flicks like me. I mentioned that it's almost family-friendly because there are two F-bombs in it, but otherwise it's pretty tame.

I recommend DEADLY SWARM, but don't expect a big Hollywood production going into it. Just enjoy it for what it is, and you'll have a good time.
