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).

Fangs,but no fangs!

If this serves any other purpose than to make the similarly themed Bats look like a cinematic masterpiece in comparison,then it escapes me. A horde of mutated bats are deliberately released into a small California community,which is under the sway of an unscrupulous property developer,who aided by his henchmen -a corrupt police chief and a dim,strongarm man -is intent on building a tacky housing development in the area and is not too scrupulous as to methods Ranged against him and the pesky critters are a lady cop ,the town animal control officer ,his daughter and her stoner boyfriend. The dialogue seeks for the witty and achieves only flippancy.The acting is dire and special effects wobbly. Miss-unless you like crud.
