Rats: Night of Terror / Rats - Notte di terrore (1984)

2.5 out of 5

A gang of post apocalyptic survivors seek shelter in an abandoned building and quickly discover an infestation of rats that attack anything remotely human!

Make no mistake, this film is top grade B movie Italian schlock!!

With a completely bonkers plot about mutating rats that have gained higher intelligence , risible dialogue a three-year-old would find low brow, over-the-top set pieces and an ending which has to be seen to be believed!

What else should be expected from the director that brought you the it's so-bad-it's-good classic Hell of the Living Dead; Bruno Mattei?

The viewer should leave intelligence in the cupboard for the duration and revel in this film's glorious entertainment!
