It’s MONDO ITALIANO MONTH at Monday Mondays, featuring a hilarious heaping helping of bad movie pasta from Italy, served up with an extra sprinkling of cheese!
“Mutants of a nuclear disaster!” A gang of punked-out, post-apocalyptic bikers battle hordes of super-smart mutant rodents with a ravenous appetite for human flesh in this laughably awful, seriously unhinged Italian shocker from the notorious Bruno Mattei (Hell of the Living Dead; Emanuelle in Prison). In the year 225 A.B. (After the Bomb), a group of scavenging bikers discover an abandoned research laboratory filled with food, water … and thousands of rats.
“A savagely campy piece of junk with gore, sex and more unintentional laughs than you can imagine.” – DVD Drive-In
But this being an Italian post-apocalyptic horror flick, these are no ordinary vermin; these are ultra-intelligent, genetically-modified mutant rats who can outthink, outwit and outlast any silly motorcycle enthusiast. Oh, and they’ve also developed a hunger for leather-clad human meat, which naturally spells trouble for our increasingly chewed-up and digested Road Warrior wanna-be’s. Can a bunch of heavily-armed but not-too-bright human scavengers survive a night of terror against the most hungry and horrific predators on Earth? Find out in this hilarious horror flick filled with over-the-top gore, bottom-of-the-barrel dialogue and nasty attacks by what appear to be thousands of painted guinea pigs, all capped off with a twist ending that must be seen to be (dis)believed. And tell ‘em Willard sent ya! (Dir. by Bruno Mattei, 1984, Italy, badly dubbed in English, 97 mins., Rated R)
