Of Unknown Origin (1883)
« on: November 14, 2017, 06:15:11 PM »
Basically Peter Weller (RoboCop) is home alone after his wife and child go away. He finds he has a rodent problem and quickly becomes obsessed. The film degrades into an insane Peter Weller armed with a spiked bat in a life and death struggle with a rat in his home. It's hilarious without a rif, and highly recommended.

IMDB: Bart Hughes has a pretty good life, a beautiful wife, a young son, a good job with promotion prospects, and a renovated brownstone in New York. When wife and kid leave for a vacation, Bart stays behind to work on a project that will earn him that promotion, unaware that a certain inhabitant of his basement has other plans for his time. Bart goes a bit bonkers trying to kill this rat, destroying most of his house in the process. Certain allegorical elements tie the household conflict to the "rat race" in his office, but the main event is certainly the night-and-day contest of wills between man and rodent.

Didn't realize Peter Weller began his acting career over 100 years ago.
