A film by Andrew Harrison and Darryl Sloan (2005)
Claire Watson, an independent young woman, was lucky enough to be able to purchase her own house. She has lived there alone and at peace for six years. Then one night the noises begin – the scampering of little rodent feet above her head. Not one for crawling around in dark, dusty attics, Claire opens the Yellow Pages and leaves it to the experts. But before the pest control people arrive, the rats are on the prowl again, and they don’t sound friendly. In fact, they don’t sound like rats at all.
“It is well acted, well directed, believable and entertaining, possessing a defined palpable atmosphere and confident punch line … The music score is atmospheric, brooding and full of portent … I for one can’t wait for another Midnight Pictures film. I only hope they manage to secure the budget to truly compliment the talent and ingenuity they already display.”

“The movie is very atmospheric, and the feeling of foreboding by the viewer is quite pronounced. You know that Claire’s problem isn’t related to rodents and you almost want to grab her and tell her to get out of the house before ‘it’ gets her … Don’t Look in the Attic shows how much tension can be created when the right story is tied nicely together with a good script and tight editing. I’ll be looking forward to viewing the other Midnight Pictures releases.”
