3.0 out of 5 stars An average creature-feature, 26 Dec 2010
This review is from: Vampire Bats [DVD] [2007] (DVD)
When the body of a student is found drained of blood and two of her students at Tate University are taken in for questioning a local biology teacher volunteers to examine the corpse and find that the body has been attacked by animals, soon proven to be bats.
Lucy Lawless, reprising her role of Maddy Rierdon from Locusts: Day of Destruction Locusts - Day Of Destruction [DVD] [2005] with her husband, who is also a teacher join forces with a group of students to capture one of the bats using a goat for bait. They discover the bats are a mutant strain and that the mutation has been caused by human intervention which soon leads to the revelation of corruption by town officials.
The blurb on the DVD case says "as the suspense - and body count- continues to mount", they are half right, there's plenty attacks but it is notably lacking in suspense. It's not particularly gory either, the warning on the back says "contains moderate forensic gore", namely a brief autopsy. There are a few good set pieces as the bats attack a local college party and a river boat party thrown by the local high rollers, and a few decent close-up shots of the bats chomping away at their victims.
It's not irredeemably bad, Lawless and Jessica Stroup as Eden are fine, as is Timothy Bottoms as the Mayor but the best acting honours here go to Brett Butler as Shelly.
There are no extras.
