Nice chiller starred by flying foxes, fast-paced ,and well directed by Morneau
Absolutely surprising carnivorous bats tale, derived from abysmal story. The film starts in Skull Valley, Arizona, where the scientific Casper(Dina Meyer) and his assistant Jimmy(Leon) are investigating about bats . They're brought by a government scientist(Bob Gunton, Jacott) to a small town called Callup, in Texas. There appear a pack of carnivorous bats that prey on citizens, terrorizing the small community. The chiroptera specialist Casper, his helper along with a policeman(Lou Diamond Phillips) attempt to stop a genetically altered flying foxes before the military comes into action, bombing the caves.
This is a slam-bang chiller about flying foxes, full of scares and lots of blood and gore. Delivers the goods with suspense, tension and hair-raising chills , plus the astonishing special effects of this nature, as the ferocious bats seem alive . It's an eerily effective thriller, quite entertaining, though many will undoubtedly find repulsive when the bats attack and eat their victims. The tale can't bear such close scrutiny, but while this thrills ride is going, you won't mind. The vampire bats are splendidly made by means of Animatronics in charge of Robert Zurtzman, Greg Nicotero and Howard Berger. The acting is uneven,an attractive Dina Meyer, Lou Diamond Phillips as the patrolman along with the scientific facing off the creepy bats and kill them in their caves. Bob Gunton is an oddball baddie acting as mad doctor and the comic relief in charge of Leon. Interesting screenplay by John Logan, today writer for blockbusters( Aviator, Last Samurai, Star Trek: nemesis, Time machine). The motion picture is well directed by Louis Morneau, in his best movie. He's a B series director, with no much success(Hitcher 2, Retroactive,Quake, Soldier Boyz,Carnosaur 2). With similar premise , ten years early(79) was shot the movie titled ¨Nightwing¨¨ directed by Arthur Hiller with Nick Mancuso,David Warner and Kathryn Harrold , but was a flop, this one is a superior film .
