Stephen Gilbert – Willard (Panther, 1971)

Blurb
Rats — one of Man’s deadliest enemies. They can outbreed him. Kill him with the plagues they carry. Strip the flesh from human bones with their needle-sharp teeth and claws. No wonder the hero of George Orwell’s classic 1984 found contact with rats the ultimate torture.

But if there was a man who didn’t find rats repugnant . . . if, on the contrary, he had such power over them that he could lead them on.a campaign of escalating revenge against those humans he hated — then the world would see such a mind-wrenching horror as it had never seen before. WILLARD is the story of just such a man. And just such a horror …

What they said about the film is doubly true of the book:

‘One of the more terrifying, deliciously scary thrillers’ – NEW YORK MAGAZINE
