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.

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").

I'm normally very cautious about renting films whose quality is dubious, especially if they are direct to videos. But I've been doing research lately and, based on positive imdb reviews, decided to check out The Rats (not to be confused with Killer Rats). I must say that this is a movie done with great taste and quality. The story was well thought out and the dialogue wasn't at all cheesy. It also doesn't hurt to have a beautiful leading actress. Good job to FOX for making a great DVD! Recommended is you want a fun but not over the top creature fx.
