fplogo.jpg (4246 bytes) Bats: Friday October 22, 1999

When the small Texas town of Gallup experiences a series of inexplicable bat attacks on local residence, the government calls upon eminent wildlife Zoologist Dr. Sheila Casper to investigate. Although usually a harmless and rather gentle animal, swarms of bats have suddenly become vicious, making Gallup a very dangerous place after the sun goes down. Sheila teams up with town sheriff Emmett Kimsey to discover why these nocturnal mammals have changed their behavior. As the attacks escalate, Sheila and Kimsey must locate and destroy the swarm's cave before the killing spreads. -- 1999 Destination Films.

I think BATS was a great movie. I loved Lou Diamond Phillips's character. I think Lou Phillips should be in more movies. He is in my top faverite three actors ( K. Russel R. Crowe and Lou Phillips ). Thanks for reading this, see you all in more movies. See you later.   P.S. my E-mail address

Bats is a brilliant piece in it's own way, reminiscent of the classic arte' that is Misquito. It's nice to know that in a time of the ultra-violent slasher/thriller/action movies, an emotional piece like Bats is still acceptable to mainstream hollywood. It's obvious to me and should be obvious to everyone that Bats is by far film perfection. If there's a movie better than Bats, I've yet to see it. Watch out for those Bats, they're gonna getcha. Bats Bats Bats, They're gonna SUCK YOU DRY!

This movie was the pits!  A scipt so bad that even the fake guano was watered down.   I never felt suspense and I never jumped (or twitched for that matter.) one time.   Shame shame shame on Lou Diamond Phillips for even being a part of such a poor film.

I'M SORRY BUT I HAVE TO SAY WHAT WERE THE PEOPLE THAT MADE THIS FILM THINKING ABOUT I MEAN THIS MOVIE IS JUST PATHETIC, COME ON BATS. I FIND THAT THE ATTEMPTED FACT THAT BATS CAN STIR UP A WHOLE TOWN TO A SCARE UTTERLY OFFENSIVE.

As with the movie The Birds, it didn't receive great acclaim when it first came out. But if taken in the aspect it was intended, this movie will be an occult hit in time.

I dislike to dislike movies, but with this one I just cannot resist. This is the worst movie of Dina Meyer's career, and of all the other stars' in this joke.It's an insult to the REAL bats.Don't have much to say about this movie except DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY

I loved this movie!!!! Great special effects, acting was superb, and Lou Diamond Phillips looked so hot!The whole movie kept me on the edge of my seat.  I almost had a "heart-attack" at the ending.  Whenever I get the tape, I'm going to watch it some more!  So,to all of you "Anti-Bats Activists," I don't care what you think! So, sue me! (Ha-Ha)

Bats is surley one of the best movies I have saw. The special effects were great and the bats looked totaly real. This beats all those other killer animal movies. Then also the script exelent. Grab a bag of popcorn and a pop and sit back and watch this movie.
