hundred years after a nuclear war,
society has been reborn into two
factions; the underground society and the
scavangers above in the wastelands.
A group of scavenger bikers enter a small
deserted town for shelter, food and water
while their own war has just started and
discover that the place has been devoured
by red eyed rats who will eat anyone that
trespasses on that land.
They try various deadly weapons but the
rats still keep attacking and all of them
must stick together to survive the night
but the rats even got into the water
system and polluted it making it very
difficult for them to make it through the
night as the bodycount piles up more and
more leaving very few of them alive
through the night.
interesting moment with the bikers riding into a deserted small town in
their motorbikes and then checking
around. There's also good close up shots
on them pigging out on food they find.
Next up, there's a good close up shot on
something moving underneath some covers
with a good shot on a corpse eaten up by
rats and a nice close up shot on her
There's a nice artsy shot on both Lucifer and Lilith naked
and caressing one another.
Good close up shot on a rat
staring at Lilith and a nice
red effects shot walking up to her
A good moment with Deus spotting
the rats climbing down some tubes into
the drinking water with him freaking out
by trying to get the rats out and a nice
terror shot on rats attacking by falling
on his head with him screaming in terror.
There's a good close up shot on a rat
sliding into a sleeping bag with Lilith starting to wake up and a good close
up shot on her wide paranoid eyes which
was a great classic horror shot.
There's nice reactions on Lucifer acting drunk and walking around the
deserted town as well as leaning against
a ledge with rats dropping on him and him
screaming which also looked well done and
cheesy like for a horror movie like this.
A good camera shot on the the gang
circling around Lilith with a
shot on a rat coming out of her mouth and
an approach by Deus screaming in terror with rats all over
him and a good shot on Kurt using his flamethrower on
him and a good shot on him burning to
death falling back.
A good argumentive discussion
between Duke and Kurt pointing their rifles at one another
on who should lead.
Many good shots on rats leaping
out and attacking or a swarm of them in
the areas of the small town.
A nice approach with Duke coming towards Myrna and
tempting her to be on his side which
looked nice and evil.
A good moment with Kurt getting aggressive and pointing his
gun at Duke for almost having
him killed showing a good gruff attitude.
We spot many nice shots on some of the
people trying to walk past the rats without
being bitten as well as showing good
We spot a nice rage on Duke pointing his shotgun from a distance away
with Myrna next to him
threatneing to kill her and then rats
jumping on him and showing nice screaming
reactions with a nice shot on an
Bottom line is that I must admit it's a bad film but it can
be a fun one to watch if you're in the
mood for those trashy dirve in types of
flicks that you's like to get together
with your gorehound friends.
The story doesn't do much as people are
stranded in an deserted area with rats
around them. At the same time this film
can be shocking on how these rats feast
on people as well as trying to pollute
the water systems there which really
grosses you out too. It does make you
wonder if David DeCoteau saw
this flick apart from Alien and invented Creepozoids
since his plot was almost similar as this
one but used a beetle like creature and
giant rats in a deserted area.
The ending I won't give away but it
looked very corny as just when you think
the nightmare is over it has become far
worst than you thought.
It is a typical looking low budget
Italian type sci-fi horror elements and
it looks like a tragedy kind of one too.
At the same time the storyline is very
weak taking place in one area throughout
the whole story.
The acting is hard
to tell whether it's good or bad since it
was overdubbed by US actors but I will
try my best to review the one's I noticed
Lead actor Ottaviano Dell'Acqua (Kurt) stood
out well as the leader of the pack and
shows good energy from what it looks like
as well as showing nice reactions to what
is all happening. He knew how to do his
blocking quite well with his struggling
Geretta Geretta (Chocolate) was so far the best
one of them all having a tomboy attitude
and getting tough when she needed to.
Very slick and cool she was. She shows
nice frightening reactions too with the
rat invasions or any other terrifying
moments. I can judge from what she does
that she can pull off a good character.
Massimo Vanni (Taurus) seemed quite charming
and bubbly with his role and showed the
odd humor to his part. He had the right
looks for the character he portrayed.
Richard Cross (Video) does his part well as
a partying type of cast member and knew
how to be energetic and outgoing too.
Plus he really knew how to act like a
goofball during certain scenario's of the
Henry Luciani (Duke) showed a nice evil
aggression to his part acting arrogant
and manipulative too. He brought out the
best in him for the crazy moments that he
had to do with each effective moment of
the story. He looked right for the part
too as he even looked mean. A nice aggression with him shooting his gun in the air
in the empty town and screaming which was
well energised. He showed nice screaming
reactions when some rats attacked him.
Ann-Gisel Glass (Myrna) came across nicely
as a sensitive type in the film who acts
too paranoid about everything going
around her. She shows nice frightening
expressions too. She knew how to portray
an innocent type for what she had to
Brétigniere and Moune Duviver are
nude fully top from bottom while making
out with one another.
are chewed up by rats
A head falls off
Rats tear out of people's flesh
Ceccarelli does wonders with the
music in this film in some parts we hear
a haunting like old fashioned organ
playing if you think of Phantom
of the Opera this was very
similar. We also hear cheesy keyboard
music for low budget sci fi horror
elements like this one along with the odd
screeching and bonging sounds too. It
sounds very horror Italian like.
machine needs a kick in the balls!
