A social misfit, Willard (Crispin Glover) is constantly humiliated in front of his co-workers and squeezed out of the family business by his boss (R. Lee Ermey). His only friends are Cathryn (Laura Elena Harring), a new temp in the office, and a couple of rats he raises at home, Ben and Socrates (and their increasing number of friends). But when one of the rats is killed at work, Willard unleashes his rage � and his army of rats � on his tormentors. Glen Morgan and James Wong (The X-Files, Final Destination) remake the classic tale of a boy and his rat first introduced to audiences in the acclaimed 1971 horror classic. The screenplay has been adapted by Morgan from the original screenplay by Gilbert Ralston. Bill Carraro is the executive producer.
