Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

In the year 225 A.B. (After the Bomb), a group of post-apocalyptic bikers discover an abandoned research laboratory filled with food, waterand thousands of rats. But these are no ordinary vermin; these are super-intelligent mutant rodents with a ravenous appetite for human flesh. Can a bunch of heavily armed but not-too-bright human scavengers survive a night of terror against the most hungry and horrific predators on earth? Directed by the notorious Bruno Mattei (Hell of the Living Dead, Emmanuelle in Prison), this hilarious 1983 Italian shocker is filled with over-the-top gore, bottom-of-the-barrel dialogue and attacks by what appear to be thousands of painted guinea pigs, all capped with a twist ending that must be seen to be believed. Rats: Night of Terror has been fully restored from original vault elements and is now presented completely uncut and uncensored.

Format: DVD
Buying Rats was an experiment of sorts for me, partially because I wasn't sure about the film and partially because the reviews frightened me somewhat. I had expected to find a really low-budget "horror" movie with painted gerbils posing as flesh-eating monstrosities, and I expected the acting quality that accompanied that prototypical setup. Well, in that regard I wasn't disappointed. I was somewhat annoyed at first by the lack of "gore" the editorial initially spoke of, but something else came out of the moving, a strange thing that I wasn't aware of the movie containing. The part I was surprised by was the hilarious nature this movie, obviously not intended to be something frightening, was crafted in, laughing at itself over and over again. Honestly, when watching it, I wondered if I had read about the same show I was witnessing.
The basic concept of the movie is this. A group of bikers existing in a post-apocalyptic world take shelter in a town and discover food, supplies, water, and rats everywhere. These rats, mutated by radiation and bent on human consumption, are more than happy to share room with something so..tasty.
Basically, buy this movie if you like B movies and something to laugh at. Don't purchase it if you are looking for something life altering, because mutant rats normally don't fit this criteria very well.

Oh man, how long I have been looking for this one movie for so damn long. I remember seeing this WAYYYYY back whenever there would be those old Creature Features on Sunday afternoons at 4:00 and you were a kid in a candy store. I had nothing to do but watch horror movies all afternoon long and just eat junk-food. I missed that show. The thing was that I had remembered a few scenes and I knew it was about rats but I just couldn't find the movie. Now by the power of God (Satan? Must be to re-release THIS movie) Anchor Bay re-released this in the Uncut version. This movie is just funny as hell. The movie soundtrack by Goblin is another addition to you who love Eurohorror, the special effects are low and cheesy, and the rats themselves are actually pet mice painted black!!! PURE GENIUS!!! I love the whole post-apocalyptic mood in this movie, and the avant-garde atmosphere is great. This movie is not that gory, maybe 1 or 2 scenes, but very tame. This is NOT a Horror movie, this is Comedy people. Pure Comedy!!!

Set in the year 215 A.B. (after the bomb), "Rats" is the story of a group of motorcycle riding nomads who travel around scavenging the leftover cities of the world that have become ghost towns. Most humans never resurfaced after going underground to avoid the radiation all those years before, but the biker gang soon discovers that the humans moving underground forced the world's rat population above ground, and it is they who now hold power over us!

Putting his own spin on Romero's "Night of the Living Dead," famed European schlock-horror director Bruno Mattei replaces zombies with rats and takes us into the future to a world turned upside down. If that sounds intriguing to you, you may want to give this one a look, but be prepared for the worst. Everything about this one is pretty bad (and kinda gross) except for the twist ending and some of the general concept itself. It's all in good fun if you enjoy bad movies though, but one sort of feels this would have been more effective as part of an anthology since it really doesn't need to be feature length.

I recommend opting for the double feature DVD that includes "Hell of the Living Dead" and the same extra features which are: "Hell Rats of the Living Dead" (an interview with director Bruno Mattei), a Bruno Mattei bio, and a theatrical trailer. Though, that one is double-sided and may be troublesome for finicky DVD players.

I really had little idea the cinematic pain train I was boarding as I watched Rats - Night of Terror (1983) aka Rats - Notte di terrore last night. Oh sure, I read the reviews and what not, but to really get a true understanding of the film's utterly rotten essence, you must watch it, and experience it, for yourself. I've seen a hell of a lot of bad movies in my time, but I have to say, this fetid, moldering bit if Italian produced flotsam buried the needle on my Suck-O-Meter, something that hasn't happened since I watched Red Serpent (2002), with Michael Paré and Roy Scheider. Written and directed by Bruno Mattei, the man who gave us such wonders as S.S. Extermination Love Camp (1977) and the ode to the usage of stock footage Hell of the Living Dead (1980), the film features Ottaviano Dell'Acqua (Zombi 3), Geretta Geretta (Demons), Massimo Vanni (Escape from the Bronx), Ann-Gisel Glass (Deadly Eyes), Henry Luciani, and Fausto Lombardi (Don't Look in the Attic).

The film started off well enough, with some displayed text telling us about how a great, nuclear holocaust drove those humans left alive under the ground, where they developed sophisticated societies. After some years, some (fool) hearty individuals decided on returning to the surface, to enjoy the toxic wonderment I suppose, and became viewed as primitives by those who remained down below. The story picks up in the year 225 A.B. (After the Bomb) as we see a motorcycle gang tooling around the wasteland (looks like an old rock quarry to me). As I was wondering just where in the heck they got the gas to run their machines, they boogie on into a dilapidated city, deciding this might be a good place to set up camp...
