Christmas SF: The Rats

Are you tired of crowded shopping malls and all the stickily sweet holiday cheer? Then the 2002 sci-fi horror flick The Rats may be just the antidote you need. Here's the setup:
"A colony of rats—the result of a secret DNA research project—terrorizes the residents of New York City during the Christmas season."
Apparently the pesky rodents set up shop in a "posh Manhattan department store", spreading disease and terror.

Happy holidays indeed!

A few warnings:

- there is an entirely gratuitous dressing room T&A scene near the beginning of the movie, apparently because you can't have a horror movie without boobies

- according to IMDB the depiction of how rats spread disease is not scientifically accurate (which should come as a surprise to no one.)

- there are lots and lots of rats

Watch The Rats at Hulu.com (US only) or below.
