Amy Jo Johnson in "Infested" (2002)

Amy Jo Johnson (Kimberly, MMPR) had a starring role in the 2002 horror film, "Infested" which revolved around a group of friends who gather for a friend's funeral, only to be attacked by super-powerful insects who eat their victims from the inside. Johnson starred as Jesse, who manages to escape the bug's wrath on several occasions, due to her quick thinking. Below is a sample. Though the film attempts a shock ending, Amy Jo's character, Jesse, does manage to survive longer than the other characters in the film.

"Infested" is available on DVD
