Infestation is a 2009 Horror-Comedy feature film by American writer/director Kyle Rankin. It was produced by Mel Gibson's Icon Entertainment and starring Chris Marquette, E. Quincy Sloan, Brooke Nevin, Kinsey Packard, Deborah Geffner and Ray Wise. It was filmed in Bulgaria.
An underachiever named Cooper (Chris Marquette) awakes to find himself nauseous, weak and covered in webbing in the office where he works as a telemarketer. As Cooper struggles out of the building, he comes face to face with a grotesque, powerful, angry bug—the first in an infestation of monstrous proportions.
As Cooper discovers what is happening, he befriends a ragtag group of survivors including Sara, a feisty and attractive brunette female, a smart Asian, a dumb blond, and a strong black man. Although the situation is dire, Cooper cannot help trying to solve his dating problems while also saving his life.
The film ends with Cooper and his fellow survivors turning toward the sound of a large rumbling. The source of this rumbling is not specified as the film then turns to black in a cliffhanger.
The rumbling is suggested to be either the insects returning or Army tanks finally arriving to attack the alien infestation.
As stated on the DVD commentary of this film, director Kyle Rankin and Chris Marquette, the star of this film signed 3-picture contracts with Icon Films for a potential trilogy of this storyline.
However as of June 2010, no further news has been released on follow-ups.
