Storyline

In Mercier, Louisiana, the freshmen friends of the Tate University Jason Ortiz, Aaron and Eden go to an underground party in the woods nearby the local cemetery. They drink the punch spiced with ecstasy and completely drugged, Jason is attacked and killed by violent bats. When the police finds the body, they arrest Aaron and Eden as prime suspects. However, their biology professor Maddy Rierdon sees the corpse and advises that the youngster had been actually bitten by animals. When Maddy catches bats using a goat and a net, she realizes that the animals are mutant vampire bats with extra fangs and that the modification of the breed was caused by the water dumped by Carbide Waste Resources in the river. While a group seeks the lair of the bats and a means to eliminate them, Maddy discloses corruption in the town. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Batty and lame!
10 September 2014 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

In this made-for-TV film, a group of freshman college punks get drugged up at an underground party, and ended up being attacked by violent bats. This leads to an investigation by biology professor Maddy Rierdon (Lucy Lawless), who discovers that the creatures are mutated vampire bats, threatening to the town.

There are some average-rated action, including all the scenes of investigations, bat attacks and residents fleeing for their lives. Other than that, everything else was batty. The cast of characters didn't have much acting abilities, save for Xena star Lucy Lawless; the overall plot lines were not exciting; there were lack of scares and suspense; and the movie had an illogical messaging (especially the environmental elements).

Overall, it is a pretty predictable but unexciting film, with no suspense built-up.

Grade D
