Synopsis

Bats
Beware of what goes "bump" (and "squeak" and "flap flap flap") in the night. Dr. Sheila Casper (Dina Meyer) is a respected zoologist dispatched by the government to Gallup, TX, a small community suffering from an unusual number of reported bat attacks. Casper finds this news puzzling, since bats are generally placid creatures who avoid contact with humans. The local sheriff, Emmett Kimsey (Lou Diamond Phillips), assures Casper that the reports are on the level and that something needs to be done about swarms of aggressive bats so thick they blot out the moon. Caspar and Kimsey discover that a new breed of genetically altered bats have escaped from a research facility and taken up residence in a cave near Gallup -- but the nocturnal bloodsuckers have no intention of leaving as quickly as they arrived. Bats was written by John Logan, who had two other projects hit the screen within a few months of Bats' release: Oliver Stone's Any Given Sunday and Ridley Scott's Gladiator. The supporting cast includes Leon and Bob Gunton. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

The Marsh
Haunted by gruesome visions of violence and death that would be far out of place in her successful series of children's books, a sophisticated author embarks on a brief sabbatical into the countryside that turns out to be far from the convalescent getaway her doctor had prescribed. Claire Holloway (Gabrielle Anwar) is an author whose rich imagination has fueled a successful career in children's literature, but one glimpse beneath the surface of her fragile psyche reveals a woman whose life has been far from storybook perfect. Tortured by a darkness that seems to grow blacker with each passing day, Claire follows her doctor's advice to leave the city behind and collect her thoughts at the picturesque Rose Marsh Farmhouse. Upon arriving at the remote farmhouse, however, Claire quickly realizes that the formidable estate bears an uncanny resemblance to the house that plagues her nightmares. When a series of strange and seemingly supernatural events lead Claire to believe that the ghostly young girl who dwells in her dreams may in fact be real, the frightened author seeks out the aid of handsome newspaper publisher Noah (Justin Louis) and paranormal consultant hunt (Forest Whitaker) in solving the mystery of this cursed village. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
