After years of studying medicine in Scotland, Diana (Jackie Scarvellis)
returns to her family home, her husband Gerald (Ian Innes) in tow - whom
dad (Douglas Phair) doesn't approve of though, while everyone else in the
family shows reservations towards Diana, blaming her to have left them
alone with dad, who needs constant care, while she's living the good life
away from home- That's not true though, because actually it was dad who
sent her away studying so she can one day when he is no more continue his
experiments - though he remains perfectly vague about the nature of these
Gerald feels less and less at home with Diana's family, so
he urges her to leave, but she is strangely unsympathetic to his requests,
instead manages to get dad's approval of Gerald when she tells him she's
pregnant from him.
Then there's the night of the full moon, and the
family secret is revealed to Gerald. Diana's dad and her brothers and
sisters are all werewolves, and in the night of the full moon, they
slaughter each other, while Diana shoots all those who are left alive
using silver bullets she had had made in town this very day. She herself
has been spared from the curse solely because she has another mother ...
only in the end, when she kills Gerald, it turns out she's a werewolf as
well, she can only control her metamorphosis ...
There is a totally
unrelated subplot about Diana's sister (Hope Stansbury) buying rats to
play with them but returning them after one has bit her - and as revenge,
she has her rats eat the petstore owner. This subplot was reportedly added
after the success of Willard.
One of these wonderful and
wonerfully bad Andy Milligan-films: Its plot refuses to make the slightest
of sense, its cast is average at best, the direction is not even
functional for most of the time, and the shocks and gore effects are
perfectly crude - and if you think The Rats are Coming! The Werewolves
are Here! is a bad movie for exactly these reasons, you are 100%
right, but if you think it's also a great movie for exactly these reasons
... you are probably a bad movie masochist, just like myself.
