The original "Killer Shrews (also known as "Attack of the Killer Shrews") is one of my all-time favorite guilty pleasure movies. So bad that you either had to love it, or turn it off after the first ten minutes. I really have no idea how many times I saw this as a kid, and sadly the initial revelation of the shrew handpuppet used to scare the crap out of me. There are few films as bad as the original that are as much fun watching minus commentary as they are watching with the MST-3K crew tearing it apart. Never forget seeing it on a large screen at NYC's Film Forum with a very, appreciative audience.
Happily, the folks involved in this new film know how bad (in an amazing way) the original was and don't shy away from making this one with more intentional humor.
Best of luck to these filmmakers!

Just in case your wondering why this is even more rambling than usual, I really shouldn't blog, tweet, social network or, especially, vlog while drinking. Just seemed such a waste to have all that Coke and rum around going stale. Let this be a lesson to you kids!
On the other hand, it's the perfect condition for checking out the various Horror Hosts broadcasting on the Interwebs on Friday & Saturday night. I sometimes think I missed my calling.
