Infamous schlock director Burt I. Gordon knows that ultimately we are not here for deep cinematic happenings with the likes of "Food of the Gods", he knows we are herefor thrills n chills.
Sadly he does not actually provide any real thrills or chills, but he does (give praise!) provide some nicely bloody and ferocious giant rat attacks, silly characters, a top slumming cast of wannabe's and has beens, plentiful action (with some very nasty looking `shotgun' hits on the rats that look disturbingly like the poor rodents really were blasted), the odd pleasing visual, a very effective score, wasps that explode in a puff of black smoke when shot, icky rubber grubs, enjoyable (in a "Thunderbirds" way) itty-bitty model destruction, growling rodents, a 'Queen' white rat who takes a liking to Football players and...GIANT CHICKENS!
How could any self respecting bad movie freak not treat themselves to at least one cheeky nibble at such a tasty slice of cinematic art? Exactly!
