Theater Date

October 22, 1999


The government has been experimenting with a mutant virus that turns ordinary bats into keen thinkers and bloodthirsty killers. These intelligent, brutal mammals are terrorizing the people of Gallup, Texas, until a specialist and her assistant are assigned to document the bats’ behavior. With equipment in tow, these scientists attempt to understand how to tame and appease the bats without destroying them completely. However, their time is running out as the animals become smarter and more vicious with every passing day. And if that wasn’t a big dilemma, the military is thinking of using these genetically-engineered mistakes as weapons in war. Caught between saving the people of Texas and salvaging a species without letting them fall into the wrong hands, the bat researchers are drawn on a wild expedition of blood-shed and decision that will decide the fate of Texas and Skull Valley.
