There are some scenes included in the network version not included in the video version. Warwick comes in Nardellos office and he says take a break Nardello. Two parts of the scene when Brogan and Dansen heckle John in the diner with the "special order for the comander of the rat patrol" were cut. A scene were Dansen and Brogan burn Johns time card was cut. A alternate ending had John Punching out his and Janes time cards. Another scene with John And Jane in Jane's van was cut. Still one more scene which had John and Ippeston cleaning the basement was cut. See more »
Bland David Andrews is a quiet hunk drifter who starts the late shift at a grimy Maine textile mill, headed over by a sadistic sleazeball boss (Stephen Macht). The basement work crew start falling prey to a giant rat monster that lurks underground. Real rats are all over the place too, to clean up the bodies.
The gore FX are mostly top-notch, the sets are good and there's plenty of violence and action, but this pointless movie is one big, unpleasant cliché thanks to poor direction and scripting (by John Esposito, based on the Stephen King story). Everyone yells and screams a lot, but Kelly Wolf (as a tough female worker who can hold her own) and Brad Dourif (as 'Nam vet pest exterminator Tucker Cleveland) are the only two who bring any spark to their roles.
