    A sleek rip-off of "The Birds" that is fast, furious, and watchable, but lacking in the two elements most essential to a silly screamfest like this: scares and laughs.

    In its own B-film, let's-make-them-jump-out-of-their-seats way, Bats is quite the hoot.
  3. A straight-faced throwback to the glory days of mutant wildlife on the rampage.

    So campy...may be good for a few laughs.

    A reassuring little cheeseball of a movie.
  6. Violent and vapid, but the visual jolts may please horror buffs.
  7. 0
    It's relentlessly bad in a way that just makes those theatre seats plain uncomfortable.

    This movie is a real gem...no I take that back it is a (Lou) Diamond (Phillips)! As always The Diamond brings his "A" game to the role and This movie is a real gem...no I take that back it is a (Lou) Diamond (Phillips)! As always The Diamond brings his "A" game to the role and owns it. He puts on that oversized sherriffs hat and you think WOW did he quit acting and take on a a life of crime fighting. This is a must watch for anybody who wants to see a bunch of bats get handed some Texas justice Diamond style! Expand
