"A Punny Heritage"

Films: The Rats are Coming! The Werewolves are Here! (1972)

Alias: Pa Mooney, Phoebe Mooney, Mortimer Mooney, Monica Mooney, Malcolm Mooney, Diana Mooney

Type: Mystical

Location: Haunted home

Height/Weight: That of average humans.

Affiliation: Neutral, Evil (Monica)

Summary: And now for something completely different. A film with barely any killer rats, and no werewolves until the end. It's little wonder you've probably never heard of this one.

History: The Mooney family is a screwed up as you can get. Pa Mooney used to be a doctor, now he's ailing and bitter. Monica is just insane and downright murderous. Malcolm is a savage berserker who needs to be kept under lock and key. All of them are werewolves too due to a curse from long ago. Now member Diana is coming in for a visit with her new husband. This should be interesting.

Notable Kills: Monica isn't pleased with the pet rats she bought being hyper aggressive. Her response to not getting a refund is to unleash the rats onto the shopkeeper.

Final Fate: When the full moon rises, Pa dies from a lack of life support, and the rest transform as well. Monica is killed by the savage Malcolm, who gets strangled by Mortimer, and both he and Phoebe are shot by silver bullets. However, Diana reveals that she's a willing werewolf, and gleefully awaits a healthy baby to continue the bloodline.

Powers/Abilities: Only Diana can become a werewolf on a whim.

Weakness: Silver bullets.

Scariness Factor: 2-The only ones who are a bit intimidating are the unhinged Monica and mindless Malcolm. Upon becoming werewolves, the makeup completely flops, making them look like they have huge doggy noses.

Trivia: -This film is also known as "The Curse of the Full Moon".

-This thing was made on a budget of only $18,000.
