Storyline

Scottsville is a sleepy town, where the yearly apple blossom festival is usually the only 'memorable' event, so Police Chief Sam Taylor is furious when young cop Ally Parks -who comes from the big city- insists on investigating the death and mutilation of prof. Fuller, who experimented on bats, and soon several other victims, as unnatural bat attacks. She finds a helpful 'expert' in animal controller Dr. John Winslow, and the couple gets help from his inquisitive daughter Genny and her practically in-living high school-friend Logan to unravel how it all ties in with local real estate mogul Carl Hart's dishonest and corrupt practices.

Goofs

In order to help save the day, the hero and heroine come across the idea of using shredded aluminum cans in order to disrupt the bats' "radar". They get this idea after a stoner teenager points out that he avoided a ticket because the cans on his dashboard screwed up the trooper's radar. The problem is, bats don't navigate using Radar (i.e. radio or light waves bouncing off of objects); they use Sonar (sound waves bouncing off of objects), which wouldn't be adversely affected by metal. While the confetti storm could conceivably have been confusing to the bats, it wouldn't have "blinded" them the way the movie implied (considering the fact that bats are used to flying in swarms or through leafy wooded areas, so it's not like a bunch of fluttering objects would completely disoriented them).

It's Not So Bad!
26 May 2004 | by teuthisSee all my reviews

I've seen "Fangs" several times and I have always enjoyed it. It is just a classic monster picture. So one should not expect too much from it except some good, old-fashioned monsters, in the form of bats; and some campy acting by a capable cast that tries its darnedest. Considering the genre and it's history, one is either going to love these thrifty, chimerical adventures; or not. If you're a real fan of monster movies, then I think "Fangs" satisfies quite well.

"Fangs" has bat attacks; a really slimy bad guy; a cute, determined heroine; some comical teens; and even a half-effective hero. The story moves right along, and even though one pretty much knows what is going to happen, the ride is fun, and the bats are suitably scary. I say just watch it for what it is and enjoy the old monster formula worked to a tee. It's great fun.
