scary monster rats in Canada
23 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

the deadly eyes is the king of all monster rat movies,if you overlook the fact that they are dogs dressed to look like rats,sort of like the killer shrews(59)but its downright scary and creepy,and the music is creepy as well.made in Canada in 1983 the deadly eyes delivers some real good scares.a good cast;Sam groom,scatman crothers,Sara botsford, and sexy blonde Lisa langlois(the nest and many other horror films) the scenes of the rats eating people are downright gory and disturbing. the movie was'nt well received by critics,its no masterpiece but its a good killer rat movie.heres some trivia,what movie was playing at the movie theater during a crucial scene?well heres one hint.golden harvest made the movie.and golden harvest made many kung fu/karate movies. many with the late Bruce lee.watch this scary little gem for the answer. i recommend this to all fans of;when animals attack.8 out of 10.
