Welcome to the official home of Barracks Rats, an independant film produced by four US Navy sailors in Downeast Maine.
Barracks Rats is the first movie (to the best of our knowledge) ever made that looks at life in the Navy from the enlisted person's point of you.
The producers of Barracks Rats, big fans of such Navy films as The Hunt for Red October, Crimson Tide, Flight of the Intruder and others, were tired of seeing Navy films that focussed only on officers and their lives. There was nothing that celebrated the modern enlisted person. What were they to do?
Make their own movie! A movie by enlisted sailors, for enlisted sailors. And thus was born Barracks Rats!
