"The worst houseguest"

Films: Of Unknown Origin (1983)

Alias: None

Type: Natural

Location: Haunted home

Height/Weight: Twice that of an average rat.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: If you have a rat infestation, save yourself the trouble and call an exterminator. And if any rat just won't leave despite everything...well, we don't know what to tell you.

History: Bart Hughes was alone for a while, his family having other obligations. To him, it sounds like a golden opportunity to just sit back and catch up on personal projects. But he now has a bit of a rat problem. As in, this huge rat won't stop tormenting him with its presence.

Notable Kills: Slaughters a cat horrifically.

Final Fate: After practically trashing the whole house trying to get rid of the rat, he is successful in not only drowning its brood, but killing it as well. By this point, he just knocks over the last remaining vase to complete the picture of a pyrrhic victory.

Powers/Abilities: None

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 3.5-This rodent is more of a nuisance than anything, but it's a bit on the territorial side. One can only imagine trying to catch this potentially lethal rat over and over again only to be outsmarted every single time.

-There is apparently a longer version of this film, but it's nowhere to be seen.

The cycle of obsession is a long and brutal one, it seems.
First, he steals your house. Then, your wife.
Like any castle, you should learn to defend it.
