Willard is a classic 1971 horror movie. Daniel Mann directed Willard and Bruce Davison and Ernest Borgnine starred in the leading roles. It was based on the novel Ratman’s Notebooks, Willard was a huge summer hit in 1971, and it paved the way for contemporary horror predator films such as Jaws. The plot centers on a mild and meek mannered character named Willard. Willard does not relate well with human beings but he has a strange connection to rats. He lives with his mother in an old Victorian home. His mother embarrasses him at his 27th birthday party by inviting only her old and decrepit friends. This sets the stage for Willard’s psychotic relationship with rats.
