A colony of vampire bats terrorize a small Indian community in New Mexico. Standard "Nature goes berserk" plot turns extra hokey toward the end when supernatural forces are discovered working through the bats. Written by
I love the story line and the scenery. I can watch this movie over and over again. I love the way the main characters interact. Duran is quite a tough guy with a soft touch. He's not afraid to stick up for what is right. Duran's relationship with Anne shows depth. Anne is fighting the good fight. Her issues with health care are still relevant. She also has to deal with the struggle of career versus personal life - relevant to many women. I find Payne's character engaging. He takes things seriously and carries the scientist mantle well. All three characters have a sense of dedication and perseverance that is refreshing. I really enjoy this type of horror - not overtly gory with a great plot. The characters can overcome and aren't victims. I also like the political intrigue and the way it plays in the story.
