I know, but I'm not saying you created them, Jerry. I am saying that because of your drunken stupidity in leaving the cage door open you created the horrible situation that now exists.
Look, Ann, this is a mistake any one of us might've made. And I'm getting a little sick of being called an irresponsible drunk, now believe me I am.

This movie may seem hokey by today's standards: special effects, cgi, and all the things that make modern sci-fi/horror movies what they are. However that may be, I seem to remember seeing this movie for the first time,when it first came out in 1959, and let me tell you, it scared the bejesus out of me, as I watched through the crack between the theater seats in the row in front of me. I recently came across a 50 movie horror movie collection which, lo and behold, had in it "The Killer Shrews" and I promptly purchased it. I just finished watching the movie, and 47 years later, I still remember many different scenes like it was yesterday. That is the impression "The Killer Shrews made on my 10 year old self. Sure the shrew suits are primitive by today's standards, but in 1959 they were impressive let me tell you. Still fun to watch and reminisce.
