“Crops aren't doing it anymore...”

Films: Locusts-The 8th Plague (2005)

Alias: None

Type: Man-Made

Location: Civilized Area

Height/Weight: That of average locusts.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: F*CK locusts. These gluttonous insects do nothing but tear down crops that could sustain small towns for a year. With them, it's all take and no give. But hey, it couldn't get any worse...right?

History: Designed to kill crop-eating animals, this newly bred swarm of locusts was made in Idaho to bolster the agricultural economy. The plan worked a bit too well, as the locusts found that while invasive bugs are tasty morsels, humans taste so much better. After a test run goes awry, the locusts are out in the world, descending on anything unlucky enough to be caught in their sights.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: After the first swarm is killed with special pesticides, the larger swarms are taken out by being lured via pheromones into a crop dome rigged to explode. It does...though a truck is seen carrying live specimens of the things for unknown purposes...

Powers/Abilities: None.

Weakness: Anything conventional, though they are also hopelessly attracted to pesticides and pheromones.

Scariness Factor: 3.5-It's like having a wall of amateur CGI coming at you! A biting, endless, horrifically-designed swarm, really. A normal locust swarm is bad enough. We didn't need this.

Trivia: -Another film about mutant locusts, simply titled "Locusts", was also released in 2005, but there are so many similarities that we just ignored it.

-The largest locust swarm ever recorded occurred in 1875, when an 198,000 square mile-wide army of locusts, trillions strong, raided the Midwest before just disappearing. Needless to say, it left its mark on the entire economy.

"WHAT?! I can't hear you with all this buzzing!"

Remember. This experiment was allowed by the government.

Just when they thought only the crops would suffer...
Forget the poverty line! These things are preparing us for extinction!

Just get the lizards. A feast will commence.
Okay, consider us intimidated.
