While this 1995 movie is based on a Bram Stoker short story, then it doesn't automatically ensure that it will be a successful or interesting movie. And "Burial of the Rats" is not a particularly interesting movie, for sure.
There is only one reason for picking up this movie, and that is singlehandedly because of Maria Ford. Yes, the queen of B-movies is the main attraction in "Burial of the Rats".
The story told in "Burial of the Rats" is about young aspiring author Bram Stoker who is taken captive by a band of amazon-like women when he kills one of the women in order to save his elderly father. Being accepted into the sisterhood, Bram has to write about the amazon's exploits and raiding, in order to instill dread in the hearts of men. And the leader of the sisterhood is capable of controlling rats by the usage of a wooden flute.
Really? Yeah, that is what I thought too! It was just not very interesting, and the transition from short story from 1896 to a movie wasn't particularly exciting or captivating. I think this would have fared so much better had it stayed as a short story.
The acting in "Burial of the Rats" was as to be expected from a movie of this type, so don't get your hopes up. You know what you are getting right from the very beginning.
The choice of having a lot of scantily clad women does not make for a good movie. But I am sure there is an audience for this. And it seemed nothing more than a chance for director Dan Golden to show off semi-naked women. I just personally prefer something else from a movie. And the sex scene was so unnecessary, and it just sleazed up the movie unnecessarily.
However, the soldier costumes were quite good and did seem fairly authentic. So that at least deserves a thumbs up.
There is even some good laughs to be had throughout the movie. I was laughing a lot because of the rats and the way that they managed to consume all flesh and soft tissue of their victims in mere seconds, literally stripping the people to the bone. It was just hilarious.
When it comes to it, then "Burial of the Rats" is a less than mediocre movie, and it wasn't particularly entertaining.
