The Scary Animal: A horde of rats, all under the control of outsider Willard.
Most Disturbing Moment: Willard gets revenge on his mean boss Mr Martin by trapping him in the office elevator as rats pour in and start biting him. That's claustrophobia AND evil-rat-phobia, all in one.
If They Were Cute: Instead of doing Willard's bidding to maim and kill anyone that gives him a hard time, the rats each follow their dreams to become a chef in a Parisian restaurant. There's a chance, we may have seen this story elsewhere.
