It’s been so long since I’ve seen a film this bad that I had forgotten just how fun a bad movie can be. Inept is too light a word to describe this piece of rat droppings.
It’s a jumble of horror clichés as old as the movies. A mad scientist named Professor Irwin (Guy Vieg, FLASH!) is doing experiments on rats that have gotten him ostracized from the scientific community. However, his dutiful, but clumsy assistant Walter (Allen Lee Haff, DEEP FREEZE) still thinks he’s brilliant. Now cue drunken college students. Alicia (Leah Rowan, LOST FOCUS) is Walter’s girlfriend and she convinces her party-hardy friends to pay a visit to the lab.
The friends are supposed to represent classic types like the jock and rebel, but the performances are relatively interchangeable and all look like they bought their clothes from the same preppy store except that the “rebel” can accessorize better. I’d list them but I’ll just save the actor’s the embarrassment and I’d probably mix them up anyway. So anyway they’re in for some trouble because the professor’s florescent green formula has leaked into the basement and transformed one of the rats into a six-foot man in the worst rat suit in film history. It makes Godzilla look good.
