Morgan Spurlock’s Rats Trailer

rats

As found footage horror movies have continued to borrow from documentary filmmaking over the past decade or so, we’ve been slowly seeing documentaries starting to cross over into the horror genre as well. Movies like Cropsey and The Nightmare have enhanced their non-fiction subject matter with a certain amount of chills and thrills and now we’ve got Super Size Me director Morgan Spurlock throwing his hat into this particular ring as well. His new film Rats just premiered in the Midnight Madness program at TIFF and it explores the unsettling reality of living alongside the common rat. He visits various cities across the world to look at how they attempt to control and kill rats, all without shying away from disturbing and/or grotesque material. If you have a phobia of rats, this movie just might give you a heart attack. Rats hits select theatres on September 23rd and 24th before airing on The Discovery Channel on Oct. 22nd. Check out the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.
