The movie centers upon Cpl. John Baker - an American soldier and prisoner of war, who was held captive and experimented on by the Nazis during World War II. The experiments changed Cpl. Baker so that whenever he sees blood, he transforms into a half-man/half-mosquito hybrid and is compelled to feed. Now, he uses his newfound power to hunt down those responsible for his condition as well as any other evil-doers that get in his way.

''Weresquito: Nazi Hunter'' is the eleventh film by Creator/ChristopherRMihm and the eleventh film in the Franchise/{{Mihmiverse}} SharedUniverse. The film largely stands apart from the rest of the Mihmiverse, being much darker in tone than Mihm's earlier films and mostly taking place in the town of New Berlin, Wisconsin. Nevertheless, it is set in the same universe, through a surprising connection that is only revealed at the end of the picture.
