Movie Summary

Released:
1999
Rating:
R
Bats is the 1999 creature feature from soon to be Oscar nominated screenwriter John Logan (Gladiator, The Aviator) and director Louis Morneau (Retroactive). Beautiful bat zoologist Sheila (Dinah Meyer, Starship Troopers) is recruited to fly to Gallup, Texas to investigate some strange bat attacks along with her wisecracking assistant, Jimmy (Leon). In west Texas, she meets with hunky sheriff Kimsey (Lou Diamond Phillips). The bat hunting crew is completed by CDC rep Hodge (Carlos Jacott) and the mad scientist McCabe (Bob Gunton, The Shawshank Redemption). The offending bats were genetically mutated by McCabe, and this mutation is being passed on to other local bats. These bats are collective and able to work together to achieve a common goal - eat people. The small town of Gallup is overrun, in a seriously flawed flight of reason, and everyone is evacuated, except our bat hunters. Using satellite technology, they discover the bats are hanging out in an abandoned mine, and they must get rid of them before the military drops a few bombs on the place - which would actually release the bats across the country...moreless
