“Crude and sleazy and distinctively Milligan.”
— Paul Corupe, CANUXPLOITATION
Conceived as a cash-in on WILLARD and Hammer horror films, THE RATS ARE COMING! THE WEREWOLVES ARE HERE! is a dreamy, alt-Earth version of DARK SHADOWS from legendary queer filmmaker Andy Milligan. The Mooney family are struggling with secrets. When daughter Diana returns to the family’s gothic estate with a new husband, all seems well . . . until the full moon rises. Filled with Milligan’s patented blend of DIY costumes, atmospheric locations, and schizophrenic photography, RATS is a great example of ingenuity, necessity, and a genuine seething hatred of mankind joining forces to birth a unique exploitation gem.
