Decent enough effort without too many flaws
25 September 2012 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

When a series of strange deaths surrounding an Indian reservation are shown to be the work of vampire bats, a scientist enlists help from a local priest to help rein in the beasts' rampage before they can spread out to other areas.

A pretty average creature feature, this one's watchable but certainly not without a few problems. As is typical of the time, there's far too much bull-headed characters that, instead of showing them to be free-spirited and display strong core values, paint them as backwards and far too tightly controlled by their spiritual past which makes it hard to get involved in the beginning here with the reservation under conflict with the oil mining companies that come off as just stale in this day-and-age. We still get a nice, modern build-up of the creatures' appearance with animal attacks giving the tell-tale clue to their existence and it's not until people are attacked do we even see the creatures, as they make their first on-screen appearance quite late in the film, resulting in the two sides coming together and using their skills to rid themselves of the menace. This is all good stuff, with some nice action scenes that show the creature attacks as well as the tactics to get rid of them, the finale is tons of fun and there's even some decent special effects for the creatures that aren't as laughable as expected. Overall, it's quite fun if still flawed.

Rated R: Violence and Language
