Morgan Spurlock is a lauded documentarian with a penchant for connecting with younger and older movie fans alike. Projects like Super-Size Me and Where in the World Is Osama Bin Laden? play out with the drama and intrigue of a traditional fiction movie. He’s even had a couple TV shows. His latest project, however, will definitely strike a chord with PopHorror fans. I’m talking about Rats!
Official Synopsis: Inspired by Robert Sullivan’s New York Times bestselling book, RATS goes deep beneath the surface to explore the lives of man’s greatest parasite. Oscar® nominated director Morgan Spurlock unveils a new form of documentary horror storytelling, journeying around the world to bring viewers face to face with rats while delving into our complicated relationship with these creepy creatures.
As the film crawls towards its October 22nd TV air date on Discovery Channel, producers have released a new clip. Please be warned, this clip can be disturbing to sensitive viewers; it shows rats being rooted out and torn to pieces by dogs.
Here’s the official trailer, which is also a bona fide stomach-churner:
