Among these cute new **Frankenweenie **posters apeing old B-movie one-sheets is one of Were-Rat, mutant distant cousin of Office Mouse currently at large in Empire's crypt workplace. If Tim Burton's animation is anything to go by, we're one rogue fuse box away from a B-movie hell rodent on our hands.

In the movie, the monster pets – Mummy hamster, Were-Rat, Vampire Cat et al – are the freaky by-product of Victor Frankenstein's attempts to reanimate his beloved pup, Sparky.
