The plot summary on IMDb promises giant rats, as investigated by intrepid reporter Pam Weiss (Bach) and her photographer Sharon (Charlene Dallas). The ladies find no evidence of over-sized rodents (the only rat in the whole film is regular sized and very dead), but they do discover a scheme by unscrupulous property developers to rid a planned site of down and outs by abducting them, using an old network of tunnels to smuggle the bums onto a ship at the city's docks.
Other reviews mention the appearance of a 'rat-man' who lives in the sewers, but don't get too excited: he's just a regular guy with lanky hair (Scott McKay) who, with the help of old vagrant Apple Bob (Syd Beard), helps to rescue the roving reporters with a well-aimed Braeburn.
Although listed here as a thriller/horror, thrills and frights are in short supply; boredom and exasperation, on the other hand, are never far away. The biggest shock is seeing poor John Saxon (Enter The Dragon, A Nightmare on Elm Street) wasted in the pointless role of newspaper editor.
