Perfect late-summer drive-in fare.

Baltimore Sun
In its own B-film, let's-make-them-jump-out-of-their-seats way, Bats is quite the hoot.
42
Entertainment Weekly
The kind of rote schlocker that rarely makes it to big screens anymore.
38
USA Today
Really just an update of the kind of hapless grade-Z effort that once played the bottom half of a drive-in double bill.

Philadelphia Inquirer
If you are unlucky enough to stray into the presence of Bats, I strongly recommend you follow their wise example. Hang from the ceiling and go to sleep.

New York Daily News
Unfortunately, it isn't until the final scene -- a spoof of the horror genre's false-ending cliché -- that Bats really takes wing.
25
Falls apart immediately, then limps on for 45 minutes more.

Christian Science Monitor
Violent and vapid, but the visual jolts may please horror buffs.
25
Miami Herald
Dumb cliches run amok.
25
New York Post
Not especially scary or funny, this lame comedy-thriller wastes a decent cast in a plodding tale.
25
San Francisco Examiner
A dimwitted, fill-in-the-blanks horror opus that slanders a fine and useful mammal.
