Finally a movie the make "Plan 9 from Outer Space" Shine. I laughed thru most of the movie, and thought "Wow, Plan 9 was actually WELL ACTED and Fully Budgeted compared to this??" Ankle Biters is in a League all by itself. Even the black and white movie "The Creeping Terror" almost has more suspense and better special effects. the Movie should have the warning Label "Do not attempt to watch SOBER" I Really hope the actors knew they were making a candidate for a Golden Turkey Award and not a serious movie.

wow, worst acting i've even seen. it was made with a hand held video camera and the population from a south carolina trailer park. there is nothing good to be said about this movie other than the fact that it does have an end.

Possibly the greatest film achievement in cinema history

"I have to say I wasn't expecting much when I rented this movie, but after watching it, I was overwhelmed by what I experienced. Never has a motion picture moved and inspired me more than Ankle Biters. I can't begin to put into words the awe-inspiring acting, screenplay, cinematography, and special effects that is Ankle Biters. For the entire length of the film, I sat on the edge on my seat in anticipation of what would happen next. This unprecedented movie experience left me wondering how on earth this wasn't an Oscar nominee. Even if the film was overlooked for a Best Picture nomination, the acting of Adam Minarovich certainly should have been worthy of an Oscar. This movie ranks right up there with Gone With the Wind, Casablanca, The Godfather, and The Lord of the Rings. To see this movie is to be taken on an emotional rollercoaster unparallel to anything ever created in cinema. This is quite possibly the greatest cinematic achievement the world will ever experience."

"Vampire dwarves invade a small southern town. They obtain possession of a sword that has traces of the blood of the last full sized vampire (dwarf vampires can only infect other dwarves. You should have known that) and plot havoc and, presumably, world domination. At least minions of full-sized vampire subjects. Half-vampire, half-human Drexel, with dwarf sidekick T-Bone, combine to battle the evil dwarves. ANKLE BITERS is pretty dreadful. Everything from acting to editing to the script is below average, is some cases way below. If you're looking for a real vampire hunter movie check out BLADE or JOHN CARPENTER'S VAMPIRES. The dwarves are a nice twist, but the movie doesn't come near to having a clue about what to do with them. "
Three feet of crap, 2 hours wasted

"This movie isn't worth the time it takes to watch it, and I LIKE crappy movies like this. It's all a rip-off of Blade, with a couple of midgets. Unwatchable even with beer, I only give any stars because you have to applaud the fact that they actualy got the thing made."

"Its... like a [...]... its so badly done... you cant understand a word that is said because the sound is so bad, sometimes so quiet you just hear a faint murmmrmmummum sound. Its like a really REALLY badly made [...], without the sex.
AND HOW ON EARTH DID IT GET AN 18 CERT? It doesnt even have any special FX, barely even blood! they must have stretched their budget to 5 blood capsules for the whole film. IN FACT, HOW DID IT EVEN GET PUBLISHED!?!?!? ITS SO BAD, YOU CANT LAUGH. ITS THAT BAD."

""it'll either kill him, or make him a helluva lot stronger..." My favorite line! Ha, if you enjoy mocking bad movies, this will give you plenty of material-- i won a 'Bad Movie Contest' with this one."
