In Manhattan, when a client is bitten by a rat in the dressing room of the Garsons Department Store and contracts Weil's disease, the manager Susan Costello is assigned to hire and give all the necessary support to the best exterminator in New York, Jack Carver. The efficient Jack and his assistant Ty find a colony of mutant rats and try to convince the health department administrator and former partner of Jack, Ray Jarrett, how serious the infestation is. But the politician Ray is interested in covering the problem to protect economical interests of powerful groups.Written by

Was originally going to air on September 11, 2001, but release was pushed back after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. See more »
The characters in the movie pronounce "Weil" (as in Weil's Disease) to rhyme with "wheel". The doctor after whom the disease was named, Adolph Weil (1848 -1916), was German; his name should be pronounced to rhyme with "while" (and if you're a stickler for accuracy, the "w" should be pronounced like an English "v").

Not for the weak hearted. Legions of vermin infest a Manhattan department store and causes concern for the city as they escape their underground world. Some very good computer generated effects: watching rats fill up an empty swimming pool will make you squirm. An above average made-for-TV movie and worth watching...if you can stand watching violent rats in rage. The cast includes: Madchen Amick, Vincent Spano, Shawn Michael Howard and Daveigh Chase. Creepy.
