Slowly they start to realise that something isn’t right with Rebecca and, as they investigate it further, they unlock a horrifying truth. She doesn’t just want a great review, she wants something far worse.

Using Ben and his furry friends as instruments of retaliation, Willard commands his pets to carry out his vengeance.
