Without any vampires, there's a lack of material for fans to sink their teeth into.

A movie that's too unintentionally funny to be scary.

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.

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.

Now here we go, a resolutely B-movie thriller with delusions of grandeur.

Typically, the movie never gets around to mentioning why the government bred these genius bats. To discourage nightlife? To enforce curfews?

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.

...uried in clichés and swarms of mutant-like bats who, at a distance, look like nothing more than inkblots with hidden agendas.

Director Louis Morneau tries to liven things up with some intentional humor, but it is so conventional it doesn't really go anywhere.

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

Low-rent horror garbage, and one of those rare theatrical outings that actually deserves to be relegated to the junk bin at video stores across the world.

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

A dimwitted, fill-in-the-blanks horror opus that slanders a fine and useful mammal.

What an egregiously bad sack of guano this film is. It's so bad that Destination Films is being slapped by a lawsuit from the Bat Anti-Defamation League.
