The Return of the Killer Shrews

6 Comments

„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.

    DVD cover for gay and lesbian comedy movie “Pride” is ‘straight-washed’ for American market

    In case you’re wondering the critically acclaimed comedy is about a group of gay and lesbian activists who supported striking miners in the 1980’s

    The top photo is the USA DVD cover with Lesbians & Gays edited out, the bottom photo is the European version

    The wording has also changed from  ”a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists” to “a group of London-based activists”.

    Sir Christopher Lee, more fantastic than all of us. ALL OF US.

    Performed in a metal opera as Charlemagne.

    Schooled director of original and only worthwhile Wicker Man about ancient Druidic practices.

    And blessed with the most authoritarian voice ever. And I think he’s like 1,90m tall

    The only person in Peter Jackson’s LOTR cast to have met and conversed with J.R.R Tolkien 

    Corrected Sir Peter on the sound a person makes when stabbed in the back due to actual experience with that action

    He didn’t just perform as Charlemagne; he’s directly related to the great Frankish king.

    His WWII service was in the British Special Forces.

    He was an SOE agent, right?

    That he was
