    Perfect late-summer drive-in fare.

    Smoothly maneuvering within the limitations of genre conventions, Bats emerges as a vigorously paced and surprisingly satisfying piece of work.
  3. 40
    Overlong, hard look at the perils of tampering with Creation.
  4. So uninvolving it scarcely matters what it looks like.
  5. 25
    Not especially scary or funny, this lame comedy-thriller wastes a decent cast in a plodding tale.
  6. Reviewed by: Jay Carr

    A reassuring little cheeseball of a movie.
  7. 0
    It's relentlessly bad in a way that just makes those theatre seats plain uncomfortable.
