New Poster and Trailer Attack for Return of the Killer Shrews

The sequel to the 1959 "classic" Attack of the Killer Shrews is well on its way, and whether you like it or not, we have a new trailer and one-sheet for you to check out. No, this is Not an April Fool's joke. Steve Latshaw’s Return of the Killer Shrews is serious business.

Steve Latshaw’s low budget tongue-in-cheek sequel to an even lower budget 1959 bad movie classic has wrangled a few name actors, including “Dukes of Hazzard” star John Schneider, Transylmania beauty Jennifer Lyons, all-purpose character actor Bruce Davison, and original Killer Shrews star James Best, who is probably best remembered for his turn as the Wile E. Coyote-ish Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane on the “Dukes of Hazzard.”

Shlock City: The Trailer for Return of the Killer Shrews Has Boobs, Bad FX to Spare

Coming sometime to SyFy, I'm sure...Return of the Killer Shrews, a sequel to the hokey 1950s film The Killer Shrews.

I'm not entirely sure why someone thought that film warranted a sequel but, hey, here you go. James Best, John Schneider, Jennifer Lyons, Jason Shane Scott and Bruce Davison star and we have a trailer for you inside.

The story? A TV reality show hires Captain Thorne Sherman (Best) and his boat to ferry supplies to the deserted island filming location. As the TV crew and two-fisted animal expert Johnny Reno (Schneider) shoot their reality show, some of the cast and crew go missing, attacked and eaten in a bloody feeding frenzy by strange creatures. No one is prepared when they realize the place is crawling with giant Killer Shrews! The result of a 50-year-old experiment gone terribly wrong, the shrews are fast and ferocious, stripping the flesh from their screaming victims in seconds.

Coltrane in Dukes of Hazzard, alongside his Hazzard co-star John Schneider, Transylmania’s Jennifer Lyons and Bruce Davison. Check out the trailer after the synopsis:

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.

Unfortunately, as the boat departs, Thorne is too hungover to realize where they’re going,

Witness the Return of the Killer Shrews in this Campy Trailer

The one sure thing about Steve Latshaw’s Return of the Killer Shrews is that it has to be a better movie than the original 1959 snoozer. God help us if it’s not. But it has to be because the original didn’t have John Schneider, Bruce Davison, or bikini babes. Am I right?

The Killer Shrews seems an unlikely film to warrant a sequel, especially half a century later, but stranger things have happened. Steve Latshaw’s low budget tongue-in-cheek sequel to an even lower budget 1959 bad movie classic has even wrangled a few name actors, including “Dukes of Hazzard” star John Schneider, Transylmania beauty Jennifer Lyons, all-purpose character actor Bruce Davison, and original Killer Shrews star James Best, who is probably best remembered for his turn as the Wile E. Coyote-ish Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane on the “Dukes of Hazzard”.
