Watch the King Crab Attack Short Film Now

If you listened to the last Foycast, you heard me do a dramatic reading of pages from the book Crabs on the Rampage. While the world still awaits a feature film version, we can enjoy plenty of rampaging stop-motion crab action in the six-minute tongue-in-cheek French short film “King Crab Attack”.

Produced by Caimans Productions, “King Crab Attack” is done in the style of a fake trailer – that gives away the whole film just like most trailers do these day – for a giant monster flick about exactly what the title implies. Fun stuff with quite an unexpected resolution to the giant crab menace.

Undead Backbrain brings us the full “King Crab Attack” short dubbed in English to us by way of its YouTube channel. Give it a look. There are certainly worse ways you could spend six minutes.

    There was already a film based on The Crabs. It was called Island Claws and is available on You Tube.

    I’d see it.

    I would see this movie in a heartbeat. Plus my new alias is Les Crabes.
