Flesh-eating Squirrels – It’s gone too far

Whoever said – including myself – that imagination and originality are being crashed and shredded into pieces by the avalanche of remakes and sequels was clearly wrong especially in the case of the upcoming horror film Squirrels.

There is absolutely nothing misleading – other than me calling it horror film – about Squirrels. It is, as expected, a bloody and vicious squirrel attack movie. An army of deadly, flesh-eating – but cute – squirrels start attacking people, biting them and leaving them bleeding while in panic. But just like the line reads, hold on to your nuts, and we’ll be expecting this masterpiece sometime soon.

Timur Bekmambetov (known for Wanted and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter ) seems to stand behind this new endeavor, as reported by thehollywoodgossip.com. I only want to believe that this is a joke, otherwise no sensible human being could ever explain the reason for producing such a movie – which by the way I am totally promoting by writing a post about it.

It sort of scares me, though, the thought of starting to use all different kinds of animals to alert and scare the audiences. Naturally, the use of sharks, spiders, even cockroaches makes more sense than making tiny, furry creatures bite fingers and noses.

I really do hope this production is just random and it’s not becoming a thing. Otherwise we shouldn’t be surprised in the hearing of “Deadly Cockatoos” or “Killing me Fox-ly”.

  1. If they can make a feature horror movie about a giant Tasmanian Devil running rampant in America (Cemetery Gates… just so awful) then nothing is off limits…

      Haha , I haven’t seen that one and I honestly don’t know if I want to. Speaking for myself, a horror movie about jellyfish could potentialy scar me for life.. 😀

      • Ha, I don’t advise it.
        I can understand that! I didn’t realise that I was afraid of jellyfish until I saw Sphere… a particular death in that meant I couldn’t bring myself to watch it again for ages…

        Oh I remember! Those little devils! It’s quite surprising there hasn’t been any horror movie with a gigantic killing jellyfish! That could be pretty disturbing…

      • Ha, yes it could be! I was going to say it could be because they’re not the most charismatic animals… in fact they haven’t even got faces… but then I remembered there are 2 excellent versions of The Blob.

        Exactly because they don’t have faces and they are so quiet, they are perfect. – I’m definitely going to have nightmares tonight –
        I’ve heard about the Blob, but I have to admit I haven’t watched it! 🙂

        Ah well it’s worth seeing one day if you get a chance, Frank Darabont wrote the ’88 version which is a lot of fun.

    Are the people who make this movie nuts? Seriously, this is a crazy as hell idea. I really cannot comprehend why it is being made. I would never sit down and watch this trash.

    ….Okay, I am totally lying to you. I will 100% be watching this, no matter how bad it is. Looks hilarious!

    Hilarious! I tell you what, having recently seen Pirhana 3DD (no, I don’t know why, either) and Ghost Shark (I’m clearly a masochist) I quite like the idea of subverting expectations around the creatures that feature in these animals attack films. Hurrah, for killer squirrels!
