This was supposed to be appended to my post the other week about forthcoming bonkers animal-related horror flicks, but I got sidetracked and so - better late than never - I present: Squirrels.
And, yes, this is a real film. Squirrels is being produced by Timur Bekmambetov - director of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Night Watch, Day Watch and Wanted - although there is zero information on its IMDB page.
However, according to an old article on Beyond Hollywood, the plot is thus:
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.
