Fun Made-for-TV movie
23 January 2005 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I just love those made-for-TV films of the 1970's that usually ran 70-odd minutes to fill a 90-minute timeslot. Sometimes they were simplistic and contrived, but they were compact stories, and often very entertaining (some of my favourites include DYING ROOM ONLY and DELIVER US FROM EVIL). THE MISSING ARE DEADLY is one of these- and makes the best of a wild idea.

This surely must be the most unique act of teenage rebellion committed to film- certainly it is the most apocalyptic. Some screwed-up kid decides to get back at his inattentive scientist father by swiping a lab rat. Only problem is, the rodent has a plague which could wipe out the planet!

This fast thriller benefits from a great performance by Leonard Nimoy, who is 100% aggression as he follows the path of death that the kid has unwittingly caused. I haven't seen this film in over twenty years, since the last days of the late late late show.
