Plot Sypnosis:

Irina is a teacher in the middle of a messy divorce with her husband, Roberto, who has cunningly stolen the pharmaceutical company she was set to inherit. She's also dealing with a rat problem. A rat so large and terrible it has mutilated her dog. Enlisting the help of her new love interest and biologist friend, Axel, they soon discover that Roberto has been recklessly dumping nuclear waste to get ahead and wreaking havoc on the nearby wildlife. Now Irina has to contend with a mutated rat in her home and her soon-to-be ex who will do anything to keep his secret.

In one of his last horror films, director Rubén Galindo Jr. (DON'T PANIC, CEMETERY OF TERROR) delivers a vision of an apocalyptic near-future Mexico, where the environment has become a wasteland. Citizens can't go outside without a ventilator, acid rain alerts blast from the loud speakers and almost all wildlife is on the verge of extinction. Throwing science fiction, horror, action and melodrama into a genre blender, Vinegar Syndrome Active is proud to present THE DEMON RAT (aka Mutantes del año 2000, La rata maldita), newly scanned and restored in 2k and presented here in its worldwide Blu-ray debut.
