Contaminated grain breeds overgrown, killer rats in this Golden Harvest production. Dachshunds were dressed up as rats for the special effects.
The giant rats, in full shots, were actually Dachshunds dressed in rat suits. Detailed puppets were used in close shots (especially in the scenes of their gnawing on victims).
When a man locks himself in the train car to get away from the rats, there is a faint dog barking sound. Dachshunds were used to play the rats and dressed in rat suits.
