Squirrels confirms what I think we have all known in our hearts for a long time: Squirrels are evil. Forget Mickey Mouse, forget Ratatouille, all rodents really want to do is bite your fingers off. Producer certainly agrees, having launched Squirrels into pre-production, although no director has been attached so far.
The plot, should you be unable to anticipate just what a movie about killer Squirrels involves, sees a young man return to his home town after his father is mysteriously killed. Sadly, his investigation into his father's death is somewhat hampered by the hordes of blood-crazed, homicidal squirrels that suddenly descend on the sleepy little town.
Here's the wicked poster.
Here's the trailer, too. It's really funny.
Face hugger squirrels! As a fan of demented comedy horror in all of its forms - favorites include Killer Klowns from Outer Space and Attack of the Killer Shrews - I am well up for seeing this movie. It's like Arachnophobia, but with squirrels. I do not see a flaw in this plan.
