His eldest son, Mortimer (Noel Collins), is a businessman whom conducts the finances of the family and contributes to the family income. Younger daughter Monica (Hope Stansbury) is a sadist who keeps live rats as pets and frequently mutilates them and other small animals. Youngest son Malcolm (Berwick Kaler) is a half-wit with animal tendencies in which the family keeps him locked up in a room of the house with live chickens. The family has a secret: they are all werewolves! They are natural born, not made, werewolves whom turn once a month on the night of the full moon and Pa Mooney has been researching for years to find a way to break the family curse. Youngest ...

The Rats Are Coming! The Werewolves Are Here! is quite a hoot if you're tolerant enough...
3 July 2018 | by See all my reviews

In continuing to review werewolf movies in chronological order, I'm now at 1972 and this: a movie written, photographed, directed, and featured in two roles by one Andy Milligan. There are both rats and werewolves, all right, but it's mostly a dysfunctional family drama between siblings and the elderly father in charge of them all. Like I said, Milligan plays two roles: one who sells rats to one sister Monica, and another who sells a gun to other sister Diana. Dialogue is mostly exposition that one wouldn't keep saying in real life and it's constantly said quickly most of the time except for those two scenes involving Milligan. He's not a good director or writer but I'll say this about him-I was never bored, that's for sure! So on that note, give The Rats Are Coming! The Werewolves Are Here! a chance if you're curious enough...
