I’ve always said that squirrels are evil masterminds bent on taking over the world!
And now director Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) is apparently doing a (documentary) horror film on that very subject, the pre-production trailer for which you can see below. I say “apparently” because I’m having a hard time believing this movie is really real. Watch the video and you’ll see what I mean.
But whatever. Even if it’s part of some hoax cooked up by the squirrel overlords to keep us off our guard in advance of their inevitable attack, it’s still a funny trailer.
And here is the synopsis of the (supposed) movie:
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.
