    Did anyone see this horrible CBS disaster movie? I only saw part of it and want to find a place where I can get a copy (digital download, VHS, whatever) so my friends and I can MST3K it.

    For those who missed it, it's about how two swarms of genetically altered locusts, one each on the east and west coasts, immune to pesticide, start ravaging the country and the gov't has to figure out how to stop them before they hit the midwest farmland. The DoD is going to try dropping VX nerve gas, killing 10% of the U.S. population along with the locusts, but instead some rogue scientists figure out how to electrocute the locusts. They get a large swarm attached to a grain silo (trying to get in) by using a generator to turn the silo into the world's biggest bug zapper.

    I read about this movie in the tv guide, but didn't see it. Isn't the chick from Xena in it?

    I saw it Hobbit. What a cheesy movie!!! At first I thought it wasn't too bad,but after a while it became so unrealistic it was ridiculous. Seemed a little generic. Then,they had the whole relationship/baby thing going on with the hubby and wife in the middle of it. Too corny!!!

    Anyone ever see Peter Benchley's Creature? It was some horrible miniseries my friends and I saw on Sci-Fi one night. These people are chasing what turns out to be a man spliced with a shark and a seal. Sadly, it starred Kim Catrall, that must've been before Sex and the City or something.

    IMDB'd it. It was made right before the series premier of Sex and the City.

    Imagine that a movie from hollywood where the military is always looking to kill as many people as possible while completing their mission. Sounds like real life to me. :rolleyes:

    Eating locusts: The crunchy, kosher snack taking Israel by swarm
    20 March 2013 - Israel is in the grip of a locust invasion. Farmers are seeing their crops gobbled up in minutes - and some people are taking a novel approach to pest control. Eating them.

    Bible comes to life as locusts swarm Israel
    March 27, 2013 - Israeli Jews celebrating Passover will easily relate to their ancestors this year – the country has been swarmed by millions of locusts, one of the 10 plagues visited on the Egyptians.
