We gave it a B

If you turn off your VCR after the first 2 1/2 minutes of Mosquito, you’ve got one of the funniest short films ever made.

Mosquito is a giant-creature film made by giant-creature fanatics, with winking appearances by The Texas Chainsaw Massacre‘s Gunnar Hansen and legendary Stooges guitarist Ron Asheton. Even though the filmmakers never aspire to anything beyond honest dopeyness, schlock freaks will still love its wonky special effects. B
