Eye-catching photography, predictable story
*** May contain spoilers. ***
Any viewer who has sit through three or more made-for-TV "attack ofnature" movies will not find any clever plot twists in VAMPIRE BATS.However, the appealing elements of this movie more than make up for anunremarkable story.
First, VAMPIRE BATS has no 11-year-old snotty nosed whiz kid upstagingthe grown-ups. Please see my reviews of previous made-for-TV movies tosee how many other films have been ruined by kid this Steven Spielbergwannabe convention. In VAMPIRE BATS, command of science remains in theadult realm.
Second, but not least by all means, VAMPIRE BATS captures countlessmoments of attractive young females moving about in skimpy clothing. Weare not talking just quantity here (although I dare say that this filmcan hold its own with the best R-rated horny teenager movies) -- no, weare talking QUALITY. The director of VAMPIRE BATS simply loves young,ripe, female curves in motion, and often proves this fact to theviewer.
Don't expect GLADIATOR. Don't expect high drama or an epic film score.But if you are a heterosexual male who watches a lot of commercial TV,you can plan on having some fun with VAMPIRE BATS.
