Morgan's camera work is more sure-footed than his screenplay.

[Y]ou got a real opportunity here to do something really funny -- because Crispin Glover is really fun -- and something scary, but the rats, I guess, aren't up to the task.
March 18, 2003
In a culture clogged with appropriated effluvia and remake cop-outs, Willard is wittier and nastier than we deserve.
March 16, 2003
This new incarnation of Willard emphasizes one thing: no matter how bad the original was, it didn't need to be remade.
March 14, 2003
The movie keeps it close, clammy and simple, the better to focus on what is unquestionably this little thriller's strongest point: The tragic love between a boy and his rodent.

[Willard] is a quirky horror film [as well as] a study on the complexities of being accepted, loved, and appreciated.

For all its ickiness, Willard is actually that most exotic of movie creatures: a remake that handily bests the original.

Crispin Glover should be nominated for an Oscar
February 9, 2014
The vengeance-driven plot creeps along at a snail's pace, and all the teeth-gnashing and cheek-quivering in the world-courtesy of Glover's demented Willard Stiles-cannot save the day.

Terrifying and violent horror movie. Rats -- EWW.

No one can do the funny/scary/crazy/creepy high-decibel wig-out/breakdown scene nearly as well as Glover can.
April 29, 2009
Never scares, never pulls off enough tension, and the rats are bland.
August 7, 2008
September 20, 2007
The rats multiply at a rate that suggests Willard's basement is the city's red light district.
July 23, 2007
This Willard remix is a gothic, creaking, brilliantly macabre and unexpectedly intimate movie.
