80-90s Horror- Female Blonde Main Has Little Monster Crawl Inside Her Leg For Warmth she was a bank robber hiding out in a Cabin During the Winter

There was this movie with a Blonde woman as the main character and I believe she was a bank robber or criminal of some sort whos hiding out at a cabin in the mountains/woods during the winter and she soon discovers the cabin already has occupants. There's some kind of monster/s(?) that are living under her bed mattress and one ends up cutting inside of her leg to keep warm. I remember her trying to cut it out and having to do some crazy stuff.

"Aberration" (1997)

From IMDb:

A nature field researcher is investigating the strange extinction of small animals and insects in the area, which indicates that something is wrong. His suspicions are soon to be proven right when he meets May, who lives in a cabin in the forest nearby. May says that her house is infested by small creatures that she thinks are mice or rats. When the couple search the house further, they notice that they're not rodents or insects. They are fast-evolving lizards that have the appetite for animals and humans, no matter what size their prey are.

From IMDb review:

A young girl (Pamela Gidley) escaping her troubled life finds refuge in her family's old house in the mountains. She gets stuck in her house~luckily with a grad student (Simon Bossell) who specializes in animals. Very soon after they get stuck, the showdown with the killer geckos begins. All parts with the geckos are entertaining, but by far the best bit is when the girl's boyfriend (Valeriy Nikolaev) finds where she's hiding and tries to force 'his' money out of her.

I think that's the movie! You're the best, I've literally been thinking about this movie for years and could for the life of me never remember its name!
Thanks for the BA!

Sci Fi Channel used to air this. Recently, Chiller Channel had it on the schedule a couple of times. I've always enjoyed it and am surprised it isn't a cult film; instead, it seems practically no one who's seen it remembers it at all. I think that, even before SFC, I saw it on a cable movie channel. Who knew it would practically disappear?!
Thanks for the quick answer! I used to have it in my vhs collection but lost it in a move. Sometimes it takes many years for a movie to get recognized and get the proper attention it deserves. I'm gonna definitely find another copy and watch the hell out of it!
Good for you! I hope you can track down a reasonably priced copy. I admit I haven't looked for one. Now you have me curious!

I'm happy to have helped.
