Rats, no matter how vicious they may be, are somewhat limited in the amount of panic they can generate in a movie, so director Bruno Mattei had to get a bit creative in Rats - Night of Terror to get our adrenaline pumping.
And creative he was.
For starters, he hides a few mutilated corpses for his characters to stumble upon from time to time, an early warning (for both them and us) of what's to come. And what's to come, of course, are rats...hundreds and hundreds of rats, pouring out of every hole in the wall or crack in the ceiling. And these rats are hungry! One even chews its way into a girl's body, and doesn't stop chewing until it crawls out of her mouth.
With an interesting post-apocalyptic back story, some cheesy special effects and an ever-increasing body count, Rats - Night of Terror proves a lot more entertaining than you'd think.
