Deadly Eyes ★½ The Rats 1982 (R)

After eating grain laced with steroids a group of rats grows to mammoth proportions (dachshunds in rat drag were used). Their appetites grow accordingly—now they crave humans. Amid the nibbling by the giant rat-dogs, romance blooms. Silly adaptation by Charles Eglee of Frank Herbert's “The Rats.” 93m/C VHS . Sam Groom, Sara Botsford, Scatman Crothers, Lisa Langlois, Cec Linder; D: Robert Clouse.
