Gina Humphries is an entomologist and as such likes to study bugs, so is her father, though he specialises in the genetic mutation part of insects. When Gina’s father goes missing during an expedition in the heart of the Belize rainforest though, Gina and her best friend Rhonda sets off on a rescue mission. However, whilst they are on the trail, they quickly run into trouble in the form of a military base. Here they meet John Hammond, an officer that just got his transfer papers out of the jungle. With his help they are on the trail of their father, with a military team dedicated to the jungle. Unfortunately not only terrorists, cocaine lords and vicious predators are in the jungle… No, something much more deadly and hardly natural calls that jungle home. But was Gina’s father the culprit that made these monsters?
Dragon Wasps can only be called SyFy awesome. With out of this world monstrosities and horror to boot, the viewer is consequentially watching a film that will keep them on their toes with what nature has to offer. Bad guys, action, blood and the thrill of seeing a hive of mutated wasps that will likely give those folks with phobias a few horrendous nightmares, Dragon Wasps is entertaining as hell! What’s more is that audiences will be able to get some insect terminology, a sure sign of the storyline getting a proper research team involved, as well as some supernatural hoodoo voodoo scenes, though they didn’t play as big role in the film as they could have. Dragon Wasps is a guilty pleasure to those who love nature’s horror films and it’s fun, so don’t write it off just yet…
Okay, obviously we don’t have an Oscar-worthy film and the makers of this film didn’t set out to make one. We have some bad CGI killer wasps and even worse flames. The acting is not world-class whatsoever and let’s be honest, there was a lot of room for improvement, but the fact is, it’s a fun film. Dragon Wasps doesn’t need anything else than the entertaining aspect though and those who have a SyFy guilty pleasure hidden underneath their well-groomed façade will find a lot of entertainment in this one. Dragon Wasps is along the lines of Ticks, Killer Bees! and Eight Legged Freaks, though not completely similar either. In short, it’s a standalone film that has its charm and it’s perfect for an evening of drunken boredom.
