Vastly entertaining Italian bloodbath.
30 March 2002 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

On a Caribbean island,fashion models fall prey to attacks by a pint-sized creature spawned in laboratory experiments.Agren teams up with journalist Warbeck to find her sister,a model,in the jungle.I enjoyed this film-of course the plot is pretty dumb,but there is plenty of gore to keep gore-hounds happy.The definitive highlight of this film is Eva Grimaldi's shower scene.The direction is solid and the Rat Man is a genuinely scary and ugly monster.It's a crying shame that this Italian piece of horror is totally forgotten by fans of Italian cult cinema.So if you liked "Bloodsucking Freaks" or "The Sinful Dwarf" give "Ratman" a look.8 out of 10.
