ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review The best thing in the movie is Crispin Glover's performance. He affects dark, sunken eyes, and a slight stoop, and is very pale, and has one of those haircuts that shouts out: Look how gothic and miserable I am. There is real wit in the performance. And wit, too, in R. Lee Ermey's performance as the boss, which draws heavily on Ermey's real-life experience as a drill sergeant.

Review It's inaccurate to say that I was disappointed by Willard, since my expectations weren't high. Nevertheless, how can someone normally unsettled by rats be unaffected by the sight of hundreds of them swarming? Shouldn't the film have some power in this area, if only on a visceral level? And, because of Glover's relentlessly over-the-top portrayal, we don't have the opportunity to sympathize with Willard. The original film may have been grade-B horror, but a "B" is too high a mark for the remake. At least in 1971, the rodents were flesh and blood instead of pixels.

Review Morgan, who penned episodes of "The X-Files" as well as the fairly clever screenplays for Final Destination and The One, makes his directorial debut with Willard. It's an affectionate tribute to the original film and its 1972 sequel Ben, and it also captures the feel of the classic E.C. horror comics from the 1950s--immortalized in Stephen King and George A. Romero's 1982 film Creepshow.
