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 »

Pretty Awesome
2 October 2003 | by horrorbargainbinSee all my reviews

I have mixed feelings about the original "Food of the Gods". It's amazing, but easy to hate at the same time. This one is just good eighties fun and with buckets of blood. It's like "Demons", but with giant wet rats in a swimming pool instead of a movie theater. Poor synchronized swimmers!! The animal rights activists are pretty realistic, I should know. Oh yeah, the effects, both the real rats on mini sets, and the rat costumes, look fantastic.
