Critic Reviews for Deadly Eyes (The Rats)

All Critics (5)

The rat sequences are rather potent if you can overlook the fact that the ravenous rodents are often DACHSHUNDS, dressed in little rat outfits and little rat masks. But you can't overlook this, which is what makes this movie great entertainment.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Deadly Eyes has a lot of underdeveloped characters and stilted dialogue that drags it down whenever the rats aren't on-screen. The performances are also, shall we say, a bit stiff.

Aisle Seat

With its overly-familiar story and a group of characters that you merely hope will soon become rat food, Deadly Eyes makes for a somewhat tedious viewing experience.

A legitimately solid candidate for an alcohol-assisted Bad Movie Night party.
