Bad, bad, bad, oh $DEITY this was BAD.  Utterly moronic from beginning to (almost) end.  Nice to see that modern filmakers can still churn out something as bad as "The Giant Gila monster" while spending 1,000,000,000x as much money to do it.  The one, and I do mean ONE, scene in this movie that gets an intentional laugh is the final, final shot.  Sadly, this shot also tells you that the people making this film thought it was crap too, so they decided to literally squash any chance of a sequel.  Too bad they didn't put more thought into the rest of the film.

I think the movie was great it was a blast beyond the first Bats that was made.  I've enjoyed the films that Meyers, Phillips and, Leon have been in.  I know the film ended in a down key of the Bat being ran over, but you could make it that a bat did get away, and make a part two.  I know i'll go see it, bye.

The worst movie I had ever had the misfortune of paying to see in a movie theater. The only cliche I can think of that wasn't included in this movie is that of the black guy dying first.

By the way, didn't the goofy FBI guy and the main character chick resemble Mulder and Scully?

I know this movie isnt the best thing on earth, but Dina Meyer looked damn hot it that movie, i cannot beleive what a change of hairstyle can do for someone, i found here butt ugly in Starship Troopers.

I saw the movie at Walmart and for 6$ i add to buy it, got it on dvd also, i saw this movie at 30$+ in some dvd stores, can you imagine.

Its a bad movie but still its funny and far better then most of Lou Diamond Phillips movies, what the hell has happened to that guy.

I saw this a bunch of years ago, and I can remember just one scene (and that probably speaks for this film's quality) - the "Last Crusade" one, only with fire+guano+methane instead of fire+oil. Funny, though, that Crusade doesn't get trashed for that, equally stupid, scene... :o)

I worked as a manager/projectionist in a Utah theatre when this horrid pice of film trash was released.
So of course I had the following conversation at least 2 dozen times.
(The movie was shot primarily in Spanish Fork I believe)

Customer: I was an extra in this film
Me: I wouldn't go around admitting that if I were you.

Two things that bothered me that I don't see mentioned often.

#1 If memory serves there is a scene where a bat crawls into the exhaust pipe of a car and then out the air conditioning system in the dashboard.
Correct me if I'm wrong but if my car was built that way I'd die!

#2 Nosferatu is playing every hour on the hour in a one screen theatre...Nosferatu is an 81 minute film.
Even if they don't bother cleaning the theatre between screenings that's physically impossible.

One of those movies I hate. Boring story, boring characters, boring special-effects.

Given his recent work, either Lou Diamond Phillips is deliberately scraping the bottom of the barrel, or his agent deserves to be staked out in a bog someplace...

The reason this movie is so bad (and I don't mean in an enjoyably bad sense, I mean "I want 2 hours of my life back" bad) is because it TRIES to be good. And besides the countless number of groan-inducing cliches, did anyone else notice how it even ripped off the X-Files with the suit-waring government agent and lead Scully look-alike?

 Overall this movie was even cornier than Tango and Cash,and that is a damn corny movie.Also why the f$&@ can  something crawl into the exhaust pipe and moments later in through the air vent? If that was my car i think that i would have to get that piece of SH7T checked out. Also since when do those fu)king bat burrow into the ground and pop up at the same time the trucks tire is there. CHEEE-ZEE.   We should build a time machine just to go back and stop the making of this god-awful movie.
