Storyline

In Mercier, Louisiana, the freshmen friends of the Tate University Jason Ortiz, Aaron and Eden go to an underground party in the woods nearby the local cemetery. They drink the punch spiced with ecstasy and completely drugged, Jason is attacked and killed by violent bats. When the police finds the body, they arrest Aaron and Eden as prime suspects. However, their biology professor Maddy Rierdon sees the corpse and advises that the youngster had been actually bitten by animals. When Maddy catches bats using a goat and a net, she realizes that the animals are mutant vampire bats with extra fangs and that the modification of the breed was caused by the water dumped by Carbide Waste Resources in the river. While a group seeks the lair of the bats and a means to eliminate them, Maddy discloses corruption in the town. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Sucked two hours of my life away !!!
1 November 2005 | by happyangie99See all my reviews

BAD, BAD, BAD ! I can't stress this enough. I know t.v. movies suck, but this... The actors who played the students should look for work in a paint factory, cause watching that dry would have been a much better use of my time. This could have had something, but it was handled poorly. Even the lead actors were very boring. It felt way to padded. It could have run at about one hour. That to would have been to long. I don't know why Xena would get hooked up in this. The ending was so bad, even a 5 year old could guess what was going to happen. I was sort of looking forward to this, but was let down, way down. Next Halloween leave this in the guano where it belongs and choose something with some real bite !
