Oscar-nominated director Morgan Spurlock, who rose to fame with the McDonalds-indicting documentary Super Size Me is back at it again. Instead of taking on the fast food industry, terrorism, product placement, Comic-Con, or the image of men, he’s changing the game taking a look at rodents. What’s very interesting about this new documentary Rats is that we will look at their infestation, evolution, and how they affect our society the through the eyes of almost a horror/apocalyptic fashion, as if they were almost an alien species invading.

It’s been reported that the film will screen through Landmark Theaters and Submarine Deluxe in select markets for midnight showings (amping up on the horror element) September 23 and 24 in the following select cities: Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Santa Cruz and St. Louis. After the theatrical run, the film will broadcast on The Discovery Channel October 22. Here’s what Spurlock had to say about the film.

“I am so proud of this genre-bending movie and am very excited that people will get to experience all its horror doc theatrical glory in Landmark Cinemas. Seeing this on the big screen will give you even bigger nightmares.

Take a look at the trailer:

Based on the novel Rats by Robert Sullivan, the film goes into New York City, Cambodia, India, and other cities ad explores the world’s rat problem. While the film looks like it’s informing, it’s also uniquely scary. People tend to think of rats as nuisances, but they carry diseases, parasites, and have a mean bite!
