"Willard" is not a movie for musophobics. If you are one, you will know that you have a fear of rats. Based on a screenplay by Gilbert Ralston, this remake of the 1971 cult classic follows a repressed loner Willard Stiles who is ordered by his nagging mother to take care of the rat problem in their basement. But instead, he forges a relationship with the rodents and uses them in a horrifying manner against anyone who crosses his path. But when one rat turns on Willard, a fight of man-against-nature ensues. (Suzanne Hodges)
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD picture exhibits an appropriately dark picture for the subject matter, helping to create a creepy atmosphere for the visuals. At times the picture can be extremely dim, but on a correctly calibrated home theatre display, shadow delineation should provide adequate visual information. Some viewers may have trouble with the darkest scenes if they cannot get their viewing environment completely blackened. Colors are nicely rendered, with accurate fleshtones and the deepest blacks. The brighter scenes reveal a sickly green office environment at Willard

Reason #101 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because I like dealing with home theatre. I like watching movies the way they are intended to be seen by the Director at the most optimum grade. I am a student at NJIT studying for Electrical Engineering, and hopefully, I will be working in this fascinating world of audio/video.
