Ready to see one angry, little, flesh-eating squirrel? Hope you are, ’cause we have an awesome promo trailer for Timur Bekmambetov‘s upcoming horror thriller Squirrels, and we definitely recommend you to check it out in the rest of this report. Don’t forget – squirrels, like people, can seem very cute… until they get hungry! Hold on to your nuts, and head inside to take a look!
Based on an original idea by Bekmambetov, and written by Daniel Antoniazzi and Ben Shiffrin, Squirrels tells of an infestation of flesh-eating vermin caused by a shift in the food chain due to the activities of a natural gas company in a troubled town.
Or, if you prefer the official synopsis:
When a young man’s estranged father is killed under suspicious circumstances, he returns home for the first time in years to get to the bottom of the mystery. Hoping to uncover some logical explanation, he instead finds his mom’s sleazy new boyfriend, a natural gas company buying up the town, an angry female sheriff who happens to be his ex-girlfriend, and an army of flesh-eating squirrels hellbent on destroying everything in their path due to an erosion of their food chain as a result of environmental destruction by the gas company.
Unfortunately, that’s all we know about the project at this moment. Hope we’ll soon have more details to share, and until then – let us know what you think about this promo & stay tuned for more horror-updates!
