Well now, here’s a new one. Should we be surprised though? We have movies about human centipedes, famous presidents chopping up vampires, and girls falling in love with zombies, what’s a movie about squirrels taking over the world gonna hurt?
Director Timur Bekmambetov is putting together a film on this very subject, proof with the trailer below. You might recognized his directorial trademark through a recent cinematic release title Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. For me, a film like this is right up my alley. I’m not a huge fan of horror movies unless they have a humorous twist. Cabin in the Woods is an excellent example. But before you go on, please, watch the trailer be ready to ask, “really?”
The truth is there have many suspenseful movies made about animals attacking humans which have done quite well. Alfred Hitchcock’s “Birds” for example. So who’s to say this is going to be one big flop. From what I can tell, I’m going to laugh the whole way through , which is what it seems bent on doing.
But maybe this is a diversion by the the REAL threat…killer cows from outer space! Stay alert everyone, those cows are after us!
