Plot Summary:
"In Mercier, Louisiana, the freshmen friends of the Tate University Jason Ortiz, Aaron and Eden go to an underground party in the woods nearby the local cemetery. They drink the punch spiced with ecstasy and completely drugged, Jason is attacked and killed by violent bats. When the police finds the body, they arrest Aaron and Eden as prime suspects. However, their biology professor Maddy Rierdon sees the corpse and advises that the youngster had been actually bitten by animals. When Maddy catches bats using a goat and a net, she realizes that the animals are mutant vampire bats with extra fangs and that the modification of the breed was caused by the water dumped by Carbide Waste Resources in the river. While a group seeks the lair of the bats and a means to eliminate them, Maddy discloses corruption in the town."

Lucy Lawless stars as Maddy Rierdon in this sequel to Locusts. This time Maddy finds herself caught up in a murder investigation, when two of her students are thought to have murdered their friend after a rave. Knowing that the kids would never be capable of such a thing, Maddy joins the investigation and is shocked to realise that the victim was killed by the titular beasties.

Maddy teams up with a group of her students to capture and kill the bats before anyone else falls prey to their unusually voracious appetite.

The film has a great cast (including The Hills Have Eyes 2 hotty Jessica Stroup), looks gorgeous, and plays at a fast pace remaining enjoyable throughout.

The effects work is also of a very high standard for a TV movie, with the vampire bats looking particularly creepy.

OVERALL SUMMARY
It does get cheesy in places particularly the finale, but itís a pleasantly enjoyable little film.
