Critic Reviews for The Rats
What you might expect from a second-rate creature thriller.
the picture isn't so much about even something so banal as eco-paranoia, but about itself and the genre that it simultaneously lampoons and aspires to.
...in order to buy this movie, you'd have to abandon sanity altogether.
Audience Reviews for The Rats
this movie was amazing, it was balistic. if you have not watched this movie, human you have got to watch it. its excting. this movie is the boom, i have never seen so many rats in my life.
Watch this movie! It has more rats than you are gonna believe possible. Intense! Nightmares are the source of movies like this, and they cause even more nightmares.
The Rats is a well made TV B-Movie. It picks some excellent talent to drive this along and leading the way is Madchen Amick. She suits her character so well, you almost believe this is how the actress would live her life. Chase manages to pull off the daughter role without being annoying. I was never cheering on the rats and there were a few scenes that made me shudder. Like Willard, this will have me checking my toilet for a while. It also attempts a bit of a mystery as to why the rats are flocking and commentates on the deceptive nature of politics. I'd still rather watch the remake of Willard, but if this came on TV I doubt I'd change the channel.
