Trivia

This is a sequel in name only as its plot or characters have no bearing on the 1976 film. It was, however, originally intended to be a true sequel, with Burt I. Gordon (director of the 1976 film) returning, but the idea was dropped sometime in pre-production. See more »

Chew on this.
3 February 1999 | by Chris-368See all my reviews

Gnaw on! This movie rocked. What do you get when you take a dozen rats, inject them with growth hormones and let them loose with a taste for human flesh? You get 82 minutes of enjoyment that's what. This sequel had plenty of gory effects and countless deaths. What more could you ask for? I think I will keep this movie.
