Trivia

This is a sequel in name only as its plot or characters have no bearing on the 1976 film. It was, however, originally intended to be a true sequel, with Burt I. Gordon (director of the 1976 film) returning, but the idea was dropped sometime in pre-production. See more »

Hijinks, hilarity & giant rats on York campus
6 April 1999 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Filmed on location at my alma mater, York U, this is a ludicrous yet perpetually entertaining example of the "small animal/insect gets big and therefore must consume humans" genre. Growth-hormone enhanced, flesh-chomping rodents are, however, but a slim slice of this delightful cinematic pie. It also features an absorbing storyline (involving serious philosophical and socio-political issues), enjoyably inconsistent "special" (very special) effects, some truly fabulous fantasy sequences and one unbelievably audacious scene of gratuitous violence (this involving synchronized swimmers and gunfire). There are, in addition, some fine touches of melodrama (re: a man and his lab-rat and the mutual love/jealousy that ensues), a memorable performance by Jackie Burroughs ("Road to Avonlea"), and an even more memorable one by the kid who plays the "small boy who gets big and therefore foul-mouthed, mean and homicidal".

To those with a penchant for the ridiculous: only you can prevent GNAW! from becoming a neglected footnote in the index of some seldom-consulted guide to vengeful animal flicks. Only you. (Find this, watch this, spread the word.)
