Storyline

Walter Gilman, a college student, rents out a very cheap room in an old house, but it proves to be no bargain. One of his neighbors prays loudly and bangs on the furniture. Another neighbor, a single mother, issues a blood-curdling scream soon after his arrival. It turns out that she and her baby are being attacked by a persistent rat. Walter plugs up the rat-hole, but they still aren't safe. Walter is having nightmares - dreams that seem to have been inspired by the first neighbor, who warns him of a witch and her familiar: a rat with a human face. Walter soon suspects that the witch of his nightmare is real and that she is going to force him to kill the baby. Written by J. Spurlin

True horror in the classic form
8 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Stuart Gordon looks like a grizzly bear, but in watching interviews with him he seems like a big teddy bear. And it really shows in this.

Of course the Lovecraft story is updated a bit but it does capture the heart of it.

The story is a collage student rents a room in an old boarding house and encounters a slob of a landlord, on old guy who seems a little off of his rocker, and a very likable single mom with a baby who's just trying to get by. The student befriends the mom and baby only to find out the house has a dark secret. And of course the student looks for the answers.

This is really creepy. I guess it goes back to childhood stories about witches that creeped me out when I was four years old. So, I think of it as an adult fairy tail.

If you like classic horror stories, this should grab you!
