That pesky rat Ben is back for another nibble! A pretty lackluster and needless Willard sequel that is worth the time if only for the bit where the lead kid sits at a piano and comes up with the title song off the top of his head. There’s also a hellish sewer sequence near the end showing a shitload of rats getting blown to smithereens with a flamethrower. Also, as someone who has grown up knowing the Michael Jackson theme song, it’s honestly weird as fuck to discover that this is the film that inspired it.

Watched on Second Sight blu-ray.
