I actually liked this one!
23 July 2003 | by kita117See all my reviews

This movie was pretty good to watch. It wasn't boring at all. The rats were very interesting. This is what really bought the movie out. I also thought the movie was comical. I searched hard for this movie until I only found it for rental at blockbuster video. I was hoping to own this movie also (it was good enough to be a part of my horror collection). My rating of this movie would be 7 out of 10 stars.
