Box Office





On horror flicks have released many movies with animals that distinguish the mediocrity at best. Unfortunately from this huge and quality poor phylum does not escape nor the "Bats" which tries to exploit the chilling effect of bats to scare us.

The very typical case has to do with genetic mutant bats that escaped the laboratory surveillance and spreading terror in a small town in Texas. The mutation has made pamfages and people no longer fit in their brunch. After several fatal attacks on humans, the Sheriff of the city in partnership with a qualified zoologist at bats and his assistant, joining forces to face the deadly nocturnal mammals. Need to locate their nest before it's too late for the residents of the small town and not only …

Horror Trivia

The two real bats that were used in the film were transferred from Indonesia.

Unfortunately the "Bats" presents many weaknesses. Beyond the trivial details of the case (mutant animals etc) does not show the required severity and the plot unfolds with plenty of problematic matter, which chantakwnoyn the film. Often feel that you are bored in "Bats" after the pace is relatively slow and happening are suffering from lack of interest. The dialogues are often kakogrammenoi. Sometimes the film trying to look and humorous mainly through the sayings of zwologoy's Assistant but fails miserably with that type of look incredibly false and nerve racking. There is traditional and the classic character of the cavalier and scientist aperiskeptoy, in this case what is responsible for the lethality of bats but shows completely ' wood ' in most of the film. Moderate is unfortunately also the appearance of Lou Diamond Phillips (Young Guns) in the role of Sheriff. Significant presence has only the zoologist from playing excellent Dina Meyer (Starship Troopers) being much more true than the other.

Of course not all that crap because there are some scenes with interest and intensity as the massive attack by bats a night in the small town where made or come to see and the agonizing siege of sheriff and zwologoy in their Jeep with hungry bats to make literally like lyssasmenes to enter the vehicle. Such scenes are however few and did not survive the ' Bats ' by General metriotita. All told, the movie is mostly felt indifferent, tedious and anempneysti. Periodically becomes and naive. Bats however was relatively well-prepared considering the low budget.




  1. The ferocious siege of zwologoy and in the Sheriff's vehicle were from bats in one of the few strong moments.
  2. The nocturnal bat town Doo sipping the blood of residents and causing terrible havoc!
  3. Some close-ups of bats pose a momentary shudders or someone even distaste.

A few moments of intense suspense, well-crafted bats.


Problematic interpretations, backsliding in directing and screenplay, laggard pace, kakogrammenoi dialogues and grotesque humor.
