Grade-A hunk of Ed Wood-level cheese.

Once the little beasts start crawling into cars through the exhaust pipes with malevolent intent and dive-bombing people in convenience stores, it's hard not to think of Gremlins.

This bad-scientist movie about bats that attack humans and the humans who track them -- Texas sheriff Lou Diamond Phillips and zoologist Dina Meyer -- is played straight, though it wasn't intended to be taken that way.
February 24, 2009
A movie that's too unintentionally funny to be scary.
June 17, 2008
A vigorously paced and surprisingly satisfying piece of work.

yeah, that's what the world needs

The bat attacks are a series of violent camera pans rendering everything a blur; the continuity and computer-generated imagery is dire; and the dialogue stinks, as do the performances.

You really want to like it. It's kind of funny in a simple, old-fashioned kind of way, like the B-movies of old. But it really doesn't have much energy or imagination.

It's no knockout, but it's fun and gets the job done in a nonmalicious way, which more of today's punishing filmmakers should emulate.

Bats has nothing to do with baseball or Bela Lugosi. Too bad, because either would be a welcome distraction from this cheesy B-flick about genetically altered man-eating bats.

Having your own house infested with bats would be more welcome.

Treat yourself to a quality cinematic experience. Go to the theatre and see anything else that's playing.

December 2, 2002
Bats sticks to the ground rules of its genre and gets through a story at once predictable and preposterous with an ingratiating absence of pretension.
August 2, 2002
It should provide a welcome fix for many horror film addicts.
June 5, 2002
The film skillfully mixes in humor (thanks in great part to the straight-faced clichéd phrases and no-nonsense lines delivered by Leon) without undermining the tension.

Now here we go, a resolutely B-movie thriller with delusions of grandeur.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

You might be surprised at the tension that pervades this enjoyably cheesy movie.

Shaving the corns off of your toes is time better spent.

January 1, 2000
Masquerading as a Halloween season horror film, this noisy version of a washed-out formula is cause for fright in only one respect: the possibility that it could spawn sequels.
