Rat Man (1988). 1h 22m | Not Rated

“Four years before Peter Jacksonu0026#39;s Sumatran rat-monkey caused a whole heap of trouble for Lionel in Braindead, director Giuliano Carnimeo introduced fans of Italian horror to Ratman, an equally troublesome simian/rat hybrid played by the worldu0026#39;s smallest actor, Nelson De La Rosa.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSuffering the indignity of having to strip to his waist and don plastic fangs for the part, little Nelson gives his all as the titular poison-clawed, killer critter created by an irresponsible scientist. Unfortunately, being only two foot four inches tall, Nelsonu0026#39;s u0026#39;allu0026#39; is nowhere near enough, and with weak support from genre regulars Janet Agren and David Warbeck, who practically sleepwalk though their roles, Ratman winds up being extremely disappointing.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBetween dreadfully dull scenes of chinwagging between Agren and Warbeck, as they attempt to discover who or what is responsible for a spate of recent murders, viewers are treated to a touch of light gore, plus some nudity courtesy of Agrenu0026#39;s busty fashion model sister (who displays very unusual techniques when it comes to both modelling and taking a shower). Thereu0026#39;s also a little fun to be had from seeing just where teensy Nelson will pop out next: during the film, he launches attacks from a wardrobe, a fridge, a box, a luggage bag, and a toilet.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAll of this cheesy silliness, however, is not nearly enough to compensate for the movieu0026#39;s virtually plot less script, crap acting and torpid direction.”
