A growth hormone experiment gets out of hand, when the the resulting giant man-eating rats escape, reaking havoc on the unsuspecting campus. Much blood-letting follows. 

 Filmed on location at my alma mater, York U, this is a ludicrous yet perpetually entertaining example of the "small animal/insect gets big and therefore must consume humans" genre. Growth-hormone enhanced, flesh-chomping rodents are, however, but a slim slice of this delightful cinematic pie. It also features an absorbing storyline (involving serious philosophical and socio-political issues), enjoyably inconsistent "special" (very special) effects, some truly fabulous fantasy sequences and one unbelievably audacious scene of gratuitous violence (this involving synchronized swimmers and gunfire). There are, in addition, some fine touches of melodrama (re: a man and his lab-rat and the mutual love/jealousy that ensues), a memorable performance by Jackie Burroughs ("Road to Avonlea"), and an even more memorable one by the kid who plays the "small boy who gets big and therefore foul-mouthed, mean and homicidal".

To those with a penchant for the ridiculous: only you can prevent GNAW! from becoming a neglected footnote in the index of some seldom-consulted guide to vengeful animal flicks.
