Movie Info

The rats have taken over the lab in this tale of rodent terror that's sure to give even the most stringent animal lover nightmares. The Brookside Institute has long been known as the place the wealthy go to dry out and get it together, but deep within the walls of the pricey rehab center lurks a dark secret. Years ago, the scientists who worked in the institution conducted a series of gruesome experiments on countless lab rats, and though the scientists are long gone, the genetically mutated rats have multiplied, turning the pricey institute into their own personal breeding ground. With the patients in lockdown and the rats gaining an insatiable appetite for human flesh, it appears as if rehabilitation is about to take a back seat to survival for the patients of Brookside.

Audience Reviews for Killer Rats


A pretty good Rat Film, It has Ron Pelman (Hellboy) who plays a Doctor at a mental institution, Also a patient is an undercover reporter, trying to do a special on the hospital and its dirty deeds, as she is undercover we find giant rats in the cellar that feed on humans. The 2nd in my line of Halloween Movies, this one is creepy, and gets 3 1/2 stars

I find the idea of being attacked by a bunch of rats really disturbing. It would suck, so much. This film failed to really disturb because of the funny looking CG rats. They were confusing more than scary. They moved awkwardly, looked fake and didn't interact well with humans. Perlman gives a decent performance, a performance above this films level of quality. The most original part is the Dr's and Nurses in the hospital not being complete arse monkeys. They actually seem to care for the patients. The script is a bit lazy, with doors being unlocked just as the heroes need them etc. If you're into B-Movie Maneater stuff, you would have seen better, but also a lot worse.
