Critic Reviews for The Killer Shrews
If you get a few laughs from the bizarre acting and dumb story, that's the most you can expect from this bad film.
Carpet remnants attack! Very funny "MST3K" version, unwatchable on its own.
Too campily amusing not to like.
Audience Reviews for The Killer Shrews
Why are the actors standing around talking and drinking for almost all of this movie? The ending has some exciting moments, but they're kinda crazy too. This is a pretty bad excuse for a film.
Boring, horrible acting and a highly implausible storyline make this truly a bottom-of-the-barrel piece of trash. Nothing at all good about this film except that it's not much more than an hour so the pain doesn't last too terribly long.
Horrible dialogue, the most pathetic of acting and a weak story have framed Plan 9 From Outer Space as the worst movie ever made when the culprit is right here. You've got the classic "small band of survivors fighting allegedly frightening antagonists" plotline here. I was reminded of Night of the Living Dead a few times throughout the mind-numbing 75 minutes and I'm pretty sure they've got the same score. You might enjoy it if you expect a comedy (which I kind of did) but beyond that it's going to be downright painful. Bite the pillow because this one's going in dry...
