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).

Basically... for kids
3 December 2002 | by (Scottsville-sleepy town overrun by evil corporate guys and KILLE) – See all my reviews

You know, despite the PG-13 rating I actually thought this was going to be a fairly adult-aimed flick. No nudity or gore-just good, clean suspense. Well the writer and director must have definetly thought this would air on the Disney Channel on Halloween cause this film seems, well, uh... childish.

Not to say that I hated it, because I certainly didn't. It's just that this flick went a little overboard with the tongue-in-cheek. I respect the filmmakers for not taking this so seriously cause that might have been worse. But just about every third line of dialouge is a punchline. This is where my "children's fare" point comes in. These are, for the most part, completely unecessary and elementary school jokes that seem to detract from the movie instead of adding to it. So as a horror film this is a failure and another case of false advertising from the box.

But as a kid's flick it ain't that bad. I was at least amused, if nothing more.
