    I saw Willard last night and loved it! One thing that's strange, though, is how it's being heavily advertised as a horror movie...I saw it as a dark comedy. Nobody else in the theater was laughing like my friends and I, and a lot of people left the cinema bummed out and talking about how silly it was...which was the whole point of the film IMO. I mean c'mon, a guy who trains a pack of rats to kill people? One rat getting jealous of another and staging a coup? It's ridiculous.

    Definitely gonna pick this one up on DVD. [​IMG]

    James,
    I definitely agree with you regarding the whole black comedy vs. horror thing. I noticed the same complaint in a few reviews...that it wasn't scary enough, but I think they're kind of missing the point.
