This is the story of Willard Stiles who is a social misfit taking care of his ill and fragile but verbally abusive mother Henrietta in a musty old mansion that is also home to a colony of rats.

When Willard is in his father's study he is crying. As he continues to look at his father's things, the tears appear and disappear and re-appear when he picks up Socrates and holds him to his face. See more »
Stands on its own, in fact. A cross between PSYCHO and the original WILLARD, with a couple of nice touches for fans of the original including Michael Jackson's song BEN from the 1972 sequel and a photo of Bruce Davison, the original Willard, prominently displayed in the final sequence. Crispin Glover acts up a storm as a lonely man whose only friend is a white rat named Socrates. Lee Ermey hams it up as his abusive boss, just as Ernie Borgnine did in the original. I would have liked to see another killing or two, but if nothing else this follows the plot of the original pretty faithfully -- until the climax, which was just plain hokey.
