THE RATS ARE COMING! THE WEREWOLVES ARE HERE! (1971) NO STARS

God awful tale of the Mooney family, who are cursed to become werewolves during the full moon. (MOONEYS! GET IT?) In one scene, one of the weird sisters buys a rat from a scarred rat catcher (writer/director Andy Milligan) and even names them Willard and Ben! Milligan shot this as a straight werewolf movie but added the rat scenes later to cash in on Willard’s success. Let’s forget the bad acting and terrible make-up and the fact that the werewolves don’t show up until the 80 minute mark of this 90 minute movie. The thing that really makes this reprehensible is the scene where a real mouse is tortured, cut up and nailed to the ground. Not only is this the worst werewolf movie ever made, it’s also the worst killer rat movie ever made. Lucky theater patrons in ’71 were given a free rat when they saw this. The ads proclaimed: “Win a free rat for your mother in law!”
