Movie Reviews

Mutant Bats on the Rampage
Joshua Koppel | Chicago, IL United States | 08/27/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"A professor at a college in a small town is working with bats. He has bred them to be stronger and meaner. Then they get out and kill him. A local cop, once of the LAPD, and the local vet/animal control officer, worry about the loose bats and soon have their fears confirmed as the bats begin to attack others.

The hunt for the bats goes on while the body count rises. The town's apple festival is in jeopardy but it won't be shut down because of the necessary income it brings in. But our heroes start to notice a pattern in the attacks and learn more about how to disrupt or scare bats. In the end, we learn the truth of what is going on and see the final stand between heroes and bats.

A pretty typical story that follows the Jaws formula but adds a new twist on the animals' behavior. This is not just nature lashing out. Animal attacks, politics, and greed all come together in this story. Check it out.

"FANGS is not what you would expect; instead of a gory "mutated bat goes mad" movie, you get a breezy romantic comedy featuring Whip Hubley and Tracy Nelson working their way through an awkward relationship. Corbin Bernsen is around as the nasty villain; Michael Gregory (long ago from "General Hospital") is around for nasty co-villain; the real culprit is identifiable, and the bats are poorly effected creatures. But there's a lot of laughs and some fun comic scenarios to merit it a view; not at all a terrible movie, enjoyable, but nothing to scare Bram Stoker fans.
Merry Christmas!"
Can't Take FANGS Seriously
Martin Asiner | jersey city, nj United States | 05/23/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

"FANGS is the sort of horror film that is horror only as one considers its genre. If it had had just a few more laughs, it might have qualified as an updated ABBOTT & COSTELLO MEET SOME MONSTER OR OTHER. What director Kelly Sandefur has tried mightily to do is to splice some humor from the aforementioned A&C comedy horror genre with the slimy industrialist prototype right out of the mayor from JAWS. Sandefur's success is middling at best. Corbin Bernson is satisfyingly one-dimensional as the sleazebag real estate developer who is determined to keep his town's apple blossom festival from being cancelled by swarms of genetically engineered vampire bats, who, by the way, look exactly like the stringed rubber cutups they truly are. There is something to offend nearly everyone from the cloyingly annoying valley girl accent of Bernson's blonde daughter to the Barney Fife caricature of the film's entire cadre of deputies. Still, one is not supposed to watch this with a critical eye; one viewing a life is quite sufficient. For those who want to kill 90 minutes in harmless but not mindnumbing excess, there are worse fates than FANGS."
Fangs don't bite
Amaranth | Northern California | 10/23/2007
(2 out of 5 stars)

""Fangs" is a borderline movie,attempting to be a horror movie,but trying its hand at comedy at the same time. The mousy detective and the handsome animal control officer (with a ditzy teenaged daughter) try to solve the mystery of killer bats and save the Apple Blossom Festival. Corbin Bernsen stars as a sleazy real estate developer.

"Fangs" has its funny moments. The bats look toothless,and it isn't gory. In trying comedy and horror,it fails (spectacularly) at both."
