A few weeks ago, we were pleased to share an exclusive trailer for Return of the Killer Shrews, an irreverent sequel to 1959’s madcap The Killer Shrews. Now, on the eve of the films VOD release this Friday (October 26th) we’ve got another hysterical treat for our readers: It’s a side-splitting music video from the Return of the Killer Shrews’ soundtrack. Who’s ready for a Shrewd Awakening?
Return of the Killer Shrews arrives on iTunes this Friday and will hit Amazon and Google on November 9th. Directed by Steve Latshaw, who co-wrote the film with James Best, Pat Moran, and Patrick Moran, Return of the Killer Shrews stars James Best, John Schneider, Rick Hurst, Bruce Davison, Jennifer Lyons, Christopher Goodman, Holly Weber, Patrick Moran, Jason Shane Scott, Katherine Randolph, Jeneta St. Clair, and Sean Flynn.
Check out the video for Shrewd Awakening below, followed by the synopsis and trailer for Return of the Killer Shrews.
In 1959, the original Killer Shrews exploded onto drive-in screens, as a charter boat Captain and a bevy of hapless scientists were besieged by a horde of mutant beasts on a remote, storm-swept island. This classic mad doctor-meets-monster movie mashup featured edgy character actor James Best as Captain Thorne Sherman and famously low-fi special effects, giving birth to one of the most revered genre entries of its era.
Now, fifty-three years after being attacked by killer shrews on a remote island, Captain Thorne Sherman is hired by a reality television crew to return to the island in question. The shrews attack again in short order.
