X-Men’s Bruce Davison stars in this story of a mummy’s boy who develops a bond with wild rats, ultimately using them to wreak revenge…
More restrained than you might expect, it’s more of a character piece than a horror, with Davison inspiring empathy as the put-upon Willard. And while the rat attacks – which feature well-groomed rodents being tossed by stage-hands – are comical, it never achieves “camp classic” critical mass.
