Jeff Leroy’s alien giant rat invasion film, Rat Scratch Fever, is nearing completion. The film tells the tale of an army of giant, mutant rats — brought back from space on a returning Earth spaceship — that causes death and destruction for Los Angeles and the world.
Featuring Jeff Burr (director of many B-flick sci-fi horror films, such as Pumpkinhead 2: Blood Wings, Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III, Puppet Master 4 and 5 and other genre sequels, not to mention episodes of the TV show Land of the Lost), and a strong cast of genre and straight-to-video independent films, it looks like it will be a real monster-rampage hoot. Even better is the fact that Leroy is a self-confessed fan of daikaiju eiga and previous films, such as Creepies and Creepies 2 are sufficient evidence of that. Something of that aesthetic has to creep into Rat Scratch Fever (great title, by the way, Jeff!).
