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.
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).

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.
