About the Movie

Life has become one big trap for 32-year-old Willard Stiles. Haunted by the ghost of his dead father, psychologically suffocated by his mother and ridiculed by his co-workers, Willard makes an eerie discovery: he shares a powerful bond with the rats that dwell in his basement. Suddenly, Willard has friends -- hundreds of them! But a storm is brewing, and when tragedy strikes, an unstoppable tide of hungry, merciless rats rampage, seeking vengeance for their friend Willard. Starring Crispin Glover ("Back to the Future," "Charlie's Angels"), Golden Globe-nominee R. Lee Ermey ("Seven," "Full Metal Jacket"), Laura Elena Harring ("Mulholland Dr.," "The Punisher"), and Jackie Burroughs ("Heavy Metal," "Lost and Delirious").

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The movie isn't without style, but the material can't remotely sustain 100 minutes. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: In a culture clogged with appropriated effluvia and remake cop-outs, Willard is wittier and nastier than we deserve. – Michael Atkinson, Village Voice, Jul 30, 2003

Fresh: A silly, snarling romp. – Jonathan Curiel, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Even if it were the pits, who in his right mind would pass up an opportunity to see Crispin Glover coo and canoodle with rats? – Wesley Morris, Boston Globe, Jun 24, 2010

Love it

It's not that bloody, no nudity, and no swearing. First time viewers beware; It's not really a horror movie. I found it to be more sad than scary. Crispin Glover makes this movie, he's phenomenal.

Very Entertaining!

Great movie, Crispin Glover is an excellent actor.

Willard Duh

I sure loved it from the creepy to even creepier start I still feel sorry for Willard and Socrates
