Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Back in her glory days at Warner Bros., Ida Lupino never could have imagined that a movie role would require her to wring her hands, bug her eyes and make this fervent prayer: 'I won't never sin again, never. Only don't let no rat eat us, please, God!'"
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"When it comes to making bad giant-animals-attack movies, nobody touches Bert."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"Mosquitos that can puncture a man's entire head. How can you go wrong with that, I ask you."
‑ Widgett Walls,
"Schlocky, schlocky sci-fi/horror, circa 1976. And it stars Marjoe Gortner. Say more?"
‑ Steve Crum,
"Yummy schlock cinema!"
‑ Staci Layne Wilson,
"Giant animal silliness."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"without even a hint of irony, fun, thrills, imagination, or anything else approaching entertainment"
‑ David Thomas,
"Not content with having made a mess of this earlier, Gordon tries again."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
