Storyline

Scottsville is a sleepy town, where the yearly apple blossom festival is usually the only 'memorable' event, so Police Chief Sam Taylor is furious when young cop Ally Parks -who comes from the big city- insists on investigating the death and mutilation of prof. Fuller, who experimented on bats, and soon several other victims, as unnatural bat attacks. She finds a helpful 'expert' in animal controller Dr. John Winslow, and the couple gets help from his inquisitive daughter Genny and her practically in-living high school-friend Logan to unravel how it all ties in with local real estate mogul Carl Hart's dishonest and corrupt practices.

Goofs

In order to help save the day, the hero and heroine come across the idea of using shredded aluminum cans in order to disrupt the bats' "radar". They get this idea after a stoner teenager points out that he avoided a ticket because the cans on his dashboard screwed up the trooper's radar. The problem is, bats don't navigate using Radar (i.e. radio or light waves bouncing off of objects); they use Sonar (sound waves bouncing off of objects), which wouldn't be adversely affected by metal. While the confetti storm could conceivably have been confusing to the bats, it wouldn't have "blinded" them the way the movie implied (considering the fact that bats are used to flying in swarms or through leafy wooded areas, so it's not like a bunch of fluttering objects would completely disoriented them).

From the makers of Scooby Doo . . .
26 October 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Not really, but unless you watch the credits you can't tell. This film is like a slighly more graphic live version of the old cartoon. "The killer is really . . . "; I half expected to hear the line, "If it weren't for you darn kids . . ." or perhaps see a large CG or animiated dog.

The film redefines the phrase "tongue and cheek", and frankly I don't like the new definition. Tongue and cheek is great when used in moderation, but in excess it becomes extremely lame. When you're hard pressed to find something believable in the film, it's gone too far. When everything is cliche and exagerated to the extremes, it's gone too far. And the suspension of disbelief is not there.

I don't even feel comfortable critiquing the actors--I can't get over the terrible writing and mediocre direction. Look at Dungeons and Dragons which features a wonderful actor, Jeremy Irons, doing a way over the top performance. Maybe the writing and directing demanded this performance from the actors--I dunno.

I hate being one of those nit-picky viewers who goes through and finds it necessary to point out every single flaw in a film's premise. Especially films about scientific, medical, or police procedures--I mean, even the greatest films that brush up with these subjects are never 100% accurate to the real world, but we forgive them. If they're good enough, the average viewer won't know. But this film, I don't think I spotted more than a handful of points that were accurate.

So watch if you enjoy incredibly cheesy and corny horror films, you *might* be able to laugh at it . . . but I think it tries to hard and fails for even that. But, whatever, go for it if that's your type of film.
