Dull, slow paced horror about vampire bats is forgettable.

The 70's brought ,dogs,cats,rats,shark,ants,bears and now vampire bats to the generic Hollywood horror formula.

(** 1/2): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon13.gif[/img] A cheesy film that could be fun at times but I'm pretty sure the filmmakers wanted this film to be taken seriously (even for a horror film). A good Saturday afternoon movie when there is nothing else to watch but do not expect something great.
