News & Interviews for Deadly Eyes (The Rats)
Critic Reviews for Deadly Eyes (The Rats)
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.
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.
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.
Audience Reviews for Deadly Eyes (The Rats)
It borders on "so bad its good" but I can't recommend it.
A ratastic '80s horror flick about giant sewer rats. Since this was pre-CGI, the rats are animatronic and also dachshunds dressed up as megarodents. That's right... wiener dogs! Poor Scatman Crothers also makes an appearance here two years after working with Kubrick on "The Shining." This is "Bad Movie We Love" worthy--and drinking while watching is almost required--but you're still better off watching "Willard."
Loved this! A lot of fun. The rats are played by dogs in rat costumes. Glorious. Also has the lovely Lisa Langlois in it. Cant go wrong with that.
