“Hold on to your nuts.” That’s the tagline for Squirrels, from producer Timur Bekmambetov and writers Daniel Antoniazzi and Ben Shiffrin. The film doesn’t have a director at this point, but there’s a sales/concept trailer for your viewing… pleasure?

The film looks like it belongs in a zone somewhere between the classic old animal-oriented exploitation movies and the new crop of Asylum and SyFy features. It is ridiculous, but supposedly isn’t a joke. Why are the animals killing people? Well, the plot features “a town under attack by flesh-eating squirrels after a natural gas company buys up a town and destroys their food chain through environmental destruction.”
