Trivia

This is a sequel in name only as its plot or characters have no bearing on the 1976 film. It was, however, originally intended to be a true sequel, with Burt I. Gordon (director of the 1976 film) returning, but the idea was dropped sometime in pre-production. See more »

Rats all, folks!
15 August 2002 | by Mr ParkerSee all my reviews

This movie stinks but I'd like to bring up a scene that comes to mind. The climactic set piece involves giant rats terrorizing a synchronized swimming display commemorating the grand opening of the college swimming pool (that was a mouthful!). The rats come out, people start freaking out and all hell breaks loose. At some point, an armed guard (or a cop, I can't remember) loses his gun and one of the spectators picks it up and starts firing blindly into the crowd, trying to hit the rats but hitting people instead. This scene stands out because it leaves you slack-jawed with disbelief at just how ridiculous this movie can get. The rest of the movie itself is just plain stupid. I don't recommend this movie but I wont give it a complete zero. Rating 1/2* out of *****.
