“If I told you, you wouldn’t even try it,” replies Dr. Hannibal Lecter in the film’s opening when asked what is in the meat they are eating at a dinner party after a night at the symphony.

Sole Survivor -1983
Directed by Tom Eberhardt

Denise Watson(Anita Skinner), an up and coming producer for a television studio, remarkably survives an airplane crash. It seems Denise has even found a new man in her life, the physician who nursed her back to health, Dr. Brian Richardson (Kurt Johnson). Yet, there’s this state of unease that exists and Denise notices strange individuals standing from afar.

An older actress, Karla Davis(Caren L Larkey), returning from 6 years of obscurity living pretty much as a recluse, is supposed to be starring in a series of coffee commercials for Denise’s company. Karla claims that she has psychic premonitions and attempts to warn Denise of potential danger she envisions in her nightmares.

Crispin Glover (Back to the Future, Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter) plays the title character of Willard who is an introverted pushover, bullied by his dying mother (Jackie Burroughs) and his boss Frank Martin (R. Lee Ermey).

He has no friends until he encounters a white rat in his basement named “Socrates”, and soon he befriends and controls a whole army of rats (led by a giant rat named “Ben”). The rats do Willard’s bidding starting with harmless vandalism, but the pranks soon escalate into homicide.
