Forget the new JJ Abrams film about a fictional monster attacking New York...the Mulberry Street monster is a real-life city menace: the rat! Many rats actually, like more rats than they have at Peter Luger and Da Silvano's...combined! The movie, which came out last year, is summarized as follows: "a deadly infection breaks out in Manhattan, causing humans to devolve into blood-thirsty rat creatures. Six recently evicted tenants must survive the night and protect their downtown apartment building as the city quickly spirals out of control." Ratrification!

Symptoms of the rat disease don't sound that bad -- they're actually pretty similar to many of the side effects mentioned in pharmaceutical ads: dizziness, nausea, headaches, dry mouth, change in appetite...unexplained bleeding...sudden aggressive behavior. But no Crispin Glover!
