GNAW Food Of The Gods II / Canadian Entertainment Investors Number One and Company Limited Partnership - 1989

Today we gots this kinda follow up to Bert Gordon's FOOD OF THE GODS from 1976, it's a Canadian production with a $3,500,000 budget. This time, a growth hormone experiment goes awry when giant man-eating rats escape from the lab, wreaking havoc on an unsuspecting school campus.

I've got a little sound clip for your approval, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button over by our big old mouse hole, NOW, Rufus The Gnat!.. Here's a sample of... GNAW!

Two shots of evil sadist Professor Delhurst first being confronted by PETA members and then working away torturing animals in his lab with the help of his willing assistant. Even the idea of abusing animals makes our blood boil here at The Dungeon, maybe that's why we're not real keen on eff'ed up eighties flicks.

Well, it isn't long before the oversized rats escape from the lab and go on a killing spree.

It's believed that the rats escaped into the sewer system and their worries prove correct!

I put in a purchase order for one of these very cool little motorized rides for The Dungeon but Eegah!! said.. 'NO!'

Dumb ass Professor Delhurst is excited to get his hands on this new growth hormone but he gets some in a cut on his thumb! One of my favorite Benny Hill jokes goes like this... Q - What's the difference between a vitamin and a hormone?.. A - You can't make a vitamin!

Then, he glances into a mirror only to see his inner evilness starting to show through!

Things much worse than his hair piece just falling off start occurring to the jerk face.

Nice colorful close up of the professor melting away!

The good guys enter the lab and have to walk around the big gooey mess on the floor.

The cops show up with their rifles to slaughter the blood thirsty beasts on the campus.

You'll have to watch the movie to figure out this WTF?!! ending... We're back tomorrow when Eegah!! has another little treat for y'all.

I highly recommend reading H.G. Wells's original novel (Food of the Gods, that is), which is a witty, underrated satire on scientific hubris as well as a rumination on human evolution.
