Director Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) wants to share with you the wonders of the forest. The majestic trees. The babbling brooks. The … flesh eating squirrels???

Yes, that’s right. Don’t believe me? Check out the promo below:

That. Was. Hilarious. This idea is either brilliantly demented or the work of a comically gifted crazy person. Which I guess is pretty much the same thing. Either way, grandparents, hang onto your nuts. At the risk of sounding like a cliched geek, I would totally Kickstart(er) this. That swarm of flesh eating squirrels? Bloody brilliant. Here’s the official synopsis:

When a young man’s estranged father is killed under suspicious circumstances, he returns home for the first time in years to get to the bottom of the mystery. Hoping to uncover some logical explanation, he instead finds his mom’s sleazy new boyfriend, a natural gas company buying up the town, an angry female sheriff who happens to be his ex-girlfriend, and an army of flesh-eating squirrels hellbent on destroying everything in their path due to an erosion of their food chain as a result of environmental destruction by the gas company.

Seems like there’s an environmental message somewhere there. Not sure if production has begin yet on this flesh eating squirrels movie but given the teaser above it seems like all systems are go. Should be a fun ride!
