Rated NR

Crispin Glover pretty much ruins this remake of the 1970s film about a boy and his rats. Glover plays the titular Willard, a wimpy man whose pointless and lonely life takes a turn for the terrifying when he discovers that an army of rats is willing to do his bidding. The special effects, which consist exclusively of swarms of rats, are pretty cool, but Glover’s acting is so weird it takes all the humanity out of his character. This robs the film of its human interest, which leaves only rat interest. Which I guess means that this is the movie to see if you’re a rat, but be kind and don’t gnaw through anyone’s face while sitting in the theater. We in the human populace thank you.

'Willard' doesn't improve much over the original, but it has great special effects. »
