Great entertainment if you're drunk.
20 May 2002 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Deadly Eyes" is a total cheesefest!Based on James Herbert's very good novel "Rats" it features dogs in rat suits terrorizing the city.My favourite scene is when "rats" are killing this little kid!The acting is pretty awful,the gore is almost non-existent and the direction is bad.However if you love really bad horror movies give this one a look-it is certainly enjoyable!
