    Editorial Reviews

    Meet mankind’s deadliest enemy!

    Each year they plunder one fifth of our food, spread our deadliest diseases and destroy billions of dollars worth of homes and property. They’re not cute.

    Grain contaminated with steroids produce large black rats that begin feeding on the citizens of Toronto. A college basketball coach (Sam Groom, The Baby Maker) teams up with a local health inspector (Sara Botsford, The Fog 2005) to uncover the source of the mysterious giant rats. When they discover that the rats are living in the subway, they try to prevent a new subway line from opening before all hell breaks loose underground. This is man’s last desperate, bloody battle to preserve the existence of the human race!

    Based on the novel The Rats by James Herbert with a screenplay by Charles Eglee (Dexter, The Walking Dead), this nail-biting thriller is directed by Robert Clouse (Enter The Dragon) and co-stars Scatman Crothers (The Shining), Lisa Langlois (The Nest) and Lesleh Donaldson (Happy Birthday To Me, Curtains).

    Whenever you have dachshunds dressed up in rat costumes, get ready for the good times to roll. But wait - there's more. What if I told you that the great Scatman Crothers puts in a special guest appearance, too? I'm totally there, dude. I don't care how cheesy this movie is, I enjoyed it. I'm not saying Deadly Eyes is a great film, but I don't think it's as bad as a lot of horror fans say it is. Most of the time, the giant "rats" look pretty impressive to me, and heaven knows there are plenty of them on hand whenever they attack. I don't have any complaints about the gore quotient, either. It's not excessively gory - it's not like you see rats disemboweling people - but I think your average viewer will be more than satisfied by the sight of dozens of rats feeding on bloody victims. Heck, just the thought of seeing a rat pop out of nowhere will have many a person squirming. I also have to say that the film earns some bonus points in my book for a gutsy decision to make the first victim an innocent little toddler.

    So what turns your basic sewer rat into a dog-sized carnivore? In this case, it's a huge supply of tainted, steroid-riddled grain already teeming with rats. Kelly Leonard (Sara Botsford), a local health inspector, justifiably orders the lot destroyed, but that just unleashes all of the giant hungry rats and puts them on a collision course with the human population. The first victims are a baby and her pretty irresponsible teenaged sister, followed by an old man, and then a field inspector.

    3.0 out of 5 stars If you've got the money, buy it for laughs February 14, 2011

    The price as I write this is $29 plus shipping Too much for me, but if you have the money, buy it for fun.

    My favorite part is sewer scene of the attacking rats....all those cute dachunds dressed in rat costumes, wagging like craxy as they pursue their next "victim." Don't kinow how the actors kept from laughing out loud on film.

    Oh yeah. I don't know what else to say, other than "Thank you, Shout! Factory." I've been waiting for this one for decades, and you didn't let me down. In fact, I have to say that you really outdid yourselves, and at the risk of being sensational, I believe this BluRay/DVD set serves as the exemplar of how to exhume an obscure, near-lost cult movie into a shiny new home-video release. Sure, if I want a top-shelf copy of "Videodrome" or "Repo Man" or "Eraserhead", I'll go to Criterion, and as a singular driving force behind the videophilia movement, they continue to do an excellent job. But some movies dwell where Criterion fears to tread, classics like "Kingdom of the Spiders", "Starcrash", and this wonderful gem, so all hail Shout! Factory, those fine purveyors of lowbrow cinematic cheese.

    So why this is such a great release? Let me count the ways. First, there's the great, high-quality transfer of the complete feature in the original aspect ratio. (There are a few scenes near the beginning where the audio has some unwanted buzzing, but it's out of the way quickly.) Heaps of excellent extras, including a great documentary ("Dogs in Rats' Clothing") and some original lengthy interviews. I also appreciate the inclusion of both DVD and BluRay media formats. And all for a reasonable price.

    There aren't many people who know about this film, and even fewer who will enjoy it enough to purchase it, so I'm sure it was tempting to pass this one along as an economical bare-bones release. But I'm glad they didn't.

    That's right, it's time to review the deadliest of the deadly: DEADLY EYES (1982)--(insert scream here)
    Actually, for some reason the distributor on the print offered on the new Shout! Factory discs has found the copy with the title of NIGHT EYES on it--so please don't panic thinking you've gotten hold of the wrong film. Make no mistake: Robert Clouse's film is the one and only quasi-dog/rat masterpiece available on the modern marketplace. I suppose I could ramble on and speak of the great Cosmatos film "OF UNKNOWN ORIGIN" and compare it to this, but, unfortunately, Clouse's movie has nothing to do with rats (well, a little, but it's not ABOUT rats at all). There is a fairly unoriginal love story plot involving star Sam Groom and the lovely Sara Botsford, but poor old Sam is also being pursued by the vivacious Lisa Langlois too, and she's underage and he's been...well...short on romance lately, ha. (Don't worry, he behaves himself and avoids a prison sentence). With all of this silliness in mind, it's a good thing that the producers didn't push too hard for the original title of "THE RATS" because this movie has very little to do with rats, despite the fact that they are the tormentors of the picture and that there is an old professor/scientist type of person who explains a bit about what I like to call "ratology" (played by the gifted but underused Cec Linder). The only real saving grace here is the sadly forgotten Scatman Crothers who, despite his rather short performance, proves to be as enjoyable here as he has ever been elsewhere. He virtually saves what is otherwise a rather sad state of affairs.
