THE PLOT:

This is an analogy movie, in laymen’s terms that means several small plots in one large movie.

TERROR IN TOPANGA: Lisa is a young bored housewife, after an argument with her husband she goes to the local store, but there is an escaped mad killer on the loose and Lisa may be his next target.

BISHOP OF BATTLE: Emilio Estevez stars as a video game con artist obsessed with the only unwinable game that crossed his path, but when J.J. breaks into the arcade late one night and reaches the mythical 13th level, he wish he hadn't.

THE BENEDICTION: Lance Henriksen stars as Father MacLeod, a Priest who has lost faith in God, so he decides to leave the Priesthood. But during his long trip home, a demonic Pick-Up truck terrorizes MacLeod; determine to take him out for good.

And Finally:

NIGHT OF THE RAT: Veronica Cartwright stars as Clare Houston who has a rodent problem. When her husband is too cheap to hire an exterminator, she does it behind his back and finds that they have the mother of all rats. The Hindu Rat God residing within their walls.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

I did enjoy this movie; the Rat God effects could have been a little better. But considering when it was made, I think they did a great job. I think the cast is great. But what did it do to deserve an R rating, is it because it was before PG-13? Anyway, I hope it comes back on DVD soon.
I GIVE IT...9 STARS

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd, completely. I am not too crazy about PG-13, however I am also glad that is around. Because far too many movies were getting R ratings when they did not deserve them, this one for example. It was just barely too violent for a PG rating, but the only thing after PG in those days was R. Anyway, I did enjoy this movie.
I GIVE IT...8 1/2 STARS
