5.0 out of 5 stars Hungry giant rats, tearing people apart. 21 May 2014
If you've read the title for this review then you would pretty much know what to expect. This fun and ultra cheesy 80's horror film had tons of gore, nudity and unintentionally hilarious bad acting. It's hard to believe that the film cost over 3 million to make, it actually looks much lower than that but I really did enjoy this, in fact it's one of my favorite killer rats movie next to Rats: Night of Terror and Stephen King's Night Shift. Offbeat and trashy unrelated sequel to Bert I. Gordon's original 1976 film of H.G Wells 'The Food of the Gods' sees a growth hormone accidentally transform a horde of rats into giant man-eating rodents that feed there way through a college campus.

Those who love b-grade madness, gooey FX (with a splendid, if pointless melting scene) and graphically cheesy gore will have a field day. Dr. Neil Hamilton (Paul Coufos) is called to his former teachers house because she has a huge secret to tell him. The teacher did an experiment on a small child using growth hormones and somehow the child grew to a gigantic size. The teacher asks her favorite student to do some more experiments to see if something can be created to reduce the size of the child who is not only still growing but his attitude is getting violent.

Back on the college campus, PETA members are throwing a fit because the school is doing experiments on live animals. Dr. Hamilton was always against this but since there's a child involved he tries the growth hormone on a rat, which does start to grow but before the doctor can put a stop to it, the rat escapes and heads off to the sewer. Even worse, at least a dozen other rats broke loose and ate the formula so dead bodies start popping up all over the place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest killer animal movie ever made! 1 Jan 2008
By Charlie B. Counselman - Published on
I cannot recommend this film enough to fans of B-horror. There's lots of gore, violence, slapstick humor, and it's like watching a how-to guide of making movies about giant rodents. I thought it was alot better than the first one. Plus it's Canadian, and their horror movies are usually better than the average hollywood low budget programming. If you study the camera angles you can see how trick photography made the rats look enormous. The scene with the giant 5 year old kid was the absolute best though. If you want to see a little more of the film before you get this product just see if you can find the trailer on youtube. I saw the preview for this movie on an old vhs tape of a different movie and I immediately had to watch it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Food Of The Gods Part II. Review 11 July 2003
By Crazy Jim - Published on
If you love those good old-fashioned Saturday monster movies then you may want to take a look at this great straight-to-cable sequel about giant mutated rats that run amok at a college campus.
Of course, as is always the case, the authorities don't believe anyone and the Dean is too concerned with promoting a fundraiser for the new pool on campus so the rats keep on eating the co-eds with only one concerned Professor trying to stop them.
The film's conclusion involving giant rats showing up at the pool and eating everyone in sight is a real treat for gore fans. Of course, the dimwitted cops end up killing more people than the rats when their cross-fires end up in the crowd. These people have to be some of the dumbest victims in monster movie history.
If you can find this one, you should pick it up, if you're a fan of great old school cult horror flicks. If not, you might still get a few laughs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Out-f****ng-standing giant-rat movie 14 May 2009
By Theodore Shulman - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Bias alert: I used to earn my living working with rodents and I have a special affection for this flick. Like the other reviewer I really think it's the culmination of the genre, the ultimate giant-rats flick which should be taught in film schools and according to which others will be judged one day. It does for HGWells what REANIMATOR did for HPLovecraft--sets it in a modern, not-unrealistic-looking university, updates the science and politics a bit, adds sex, and makes it gory. Overwhelmingly, hilariously, gory.

Another reviewer said the original FotGs was better, but in this one, a horny kid about to score gets his genitals bitten off. And there's a synchro-swim scene which is a masterpiece from any point of view. If you need to leave the couch at the beginning of that scene, be sure to pause it. (That's not really a spoiler because like in Greek Tragedy there's a sense of inevitability from the beginning. You know what's coming.)

Fans of "Friday the 13th, the Series" (in other words, beautiful people with good taste) will recognize several Canadian villians in the cast, particularly the great Colin Fox, who played three villians including the one who actually killed Micki. He also played Nero Wolfe's chef.

3.0 out of 5 stars GNAWTY RATS 29 Aug 2004
By Michael Butts - Published on
GNAW, FOOD OF THE GODS 2 is one of those unnecessary sequels that still manages to entertain on a purely primal level. Directed with fanatical glee by Damien Lee, the movie stars Paul Coufos (Thunderground, Busted Up) as a hunky scientist who manages to create a growth hormone that works rather speedily. It's done mainly to help an old friend (Jackie Burroughs, who must like rats--she was in the remake of Willard) with a gigantic little boy who is becoming psychotic and dangerous. That's secondary however to the rats who get loose when one of those annoying animal rights groups raids Coufos' laboratory and inadvertently release a giant rat. Other rats who have eaten the professor's genetically enhanced tomatoes soon break loose and they grow quite big too! Colin Fox (who was on a strange 70s Canadian soap called Strange Paradise) plays a jealous colleague of Coufos who makes the mistake of trying to use the hormone to stop the growth of cancer. The gore is heavy and the creatures look real maybe half the time, but the ending in the swimming pool is great, full of tacky and stupid heroics. The ending is rather abrupt and signaled a sequel, but that never happened, so we'll never know what happens to...oops, no spoiler here. If you like giant rat movies and lots of gore, you'll love this guilty pleasure!

I watched it while I was working and it helped pass the time. Not a remarkable movie, but it was good enough. Had some creepy moments.
