The Return of the Killer Shrews


„The Killer Shrews“ ist Trashhorror von 1959 mit gigantischen Ratten und der wird nun, knapp 50 Jahre später, fortgesetzt – mit James Best als Captain Thorne Sherman, der für die Rolle jetzt in „Return of the Killer Shrews“ zurückkehrt. Man mag ja von Remakes halten, was man mag. Aber die Idee, alte Trashklassiker fortzusetzen – mit Originalbesetzung! – finde ich toll. Denn ich will endlich ein Sequel zu „The Incredible Shrinking Man“ sehen, mit den Abenteuern von Scott Carey im subatomaren Weltraum.

A TV Reality Show hires Captain Thorne Sherman (James Best) and his boat to cargo supplies to the deserted offshore island they’re using as a filming location. Thorne would have refused the job because he’s been to that island before and stills sees it in his nightmares. Unfortunately, as the boat departs, Thorne is too hungover to realize where they’re going and his first mate Rook needs the money. So they sail — to a place Thorne Sherman never wanted to see again as long as he lived: the island of the Killer Shrews.

Hier der Trailer zum Original, nach dem Klick noch der komplette Film sowie das Poster zum Sequel.

    Der 1959er-Film scheint ja mal wunderbarer, großartiger Trash zu sein. Den würde ich durchaus mal ansehen wollen. Aber das Remake? Hm.

    Putting The Cost Of The ESA’s Rosetta Mission In Perspective

    "So what do we get for our €1.4bn? Rosetta is both an astounding feat of engineering (catapulting a tonne of spacecraft across millions of kilometres of space and ending up in orbit around a comet just 4 km across) and an extraordinary opportunity for science (allowing us to examine the surface of a lump of rock and ice which dates from when the Solar System formed).

    Like a lot of blue-skies science, it’s very hard to put a value on the mission. First, there are the immediate spin-offs like engineering know-how; then, the knowledge accrued, which could inform our understanding of our cosmic origins, amongst other things; and finally, the inspirational value of this audacious feat in which we can all share, including the next generation of scientists.

    Whilst those things are hard to price precisely, in common with other blue-skies scientific projects, Rosetta is cheap. At €1.4bn, developing, building, launching and learning from the mission will cost about the same as 4.2 Airbus A380s—pretty impressive when you consider that it’s an entirely bespoke robotic spacecraft, not a production airliner. On a more everyday scale, it’s cost European citizens somewhere around twenty Euro cents per person per year since the project began in 1996.

    Rosetta has already sent us some stunning images of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko and today’s landing will, with any luck, provide us with our first close-up glimpse of the chaotic surface of this dirty snowball. If you’re a sci-fi fan, then, you might consider the mission to have been worth its price tag just for the pictures. The total cost for the Rosetta mission is about €3.50 per person in Europe; based on the average cinema ticket price in the UK (€8.50), it has cost less than half of what it will cost for you to go to see Interstellar.”
