Anything happen today, sir?
Well, a man was killed stag hunting on one of the islands. Fell off his horse. You mean unusual like that?
I saw the body. His two friends brought him across. All swollen and ugly. You know what I mean?
I don't suppose his friends said anything about... seeing some big things? Did they? Anything of that sort, sir?

I first saw this movie at the local drive-in theater when I was about 13yrs old. It scared the you-know-what out of me back then. I just rented the DVD and sitting there on my sofa, in my mid 40s I enjoyed it all over again! Sure, it's silly....very "B-rated" type film....but if you just accept that going into it, you won't be disappointed. In this day of Computer Generated garbage, it's refreshing to see REAL special effects. The rats are still scary some 30 years later!
Rent it, enjoy it for what it is: a campy, silly scary movie. I just love it! It saddens me to see that it's made it's way onto several "worst movie" lists. Relax people, enjoy it!
I've gotta go....I think I hear rats coming.....
