Insecticidal is a 2005 Canadian comedy horror film directed by Jeffery Scott Lando. In the film, a college student performs experiments on insects until a housemate tries to kill them. The insects grow to huge sizes and turn the sorority house into a nest, trying to kill the residents.



In order of appearance:


Insecticidal was released on DVD by Hart Sharp Video on June 20, 2006. Hart Video later re-released the film as a part of a 4-disk Gore Pack Box Set.[1]


Felix Vasquez from Cinema gave the film a mostly positive review, commending the film's strong performances, writing, "Jeffery Lando’s monster mash is firmly entrenched in the schlock arena, it’s a guiltless and shameless piece of exploitation that is so based around the sexy female cast, even the bugs want to strip them naked and mount them."[2] Popcorn Pictures awarded the film a score of 6/10, writing, "A guilty pleasure if there was one, Insecticidal is the silly tonic fans need to down after they’ve sat through the never-ending dreck that the Sci-Fi Channel has been churning out lately. Now who wants to fund me a couple of grand to make Babes Versus Bugs?"[3]
