Niagara Falls, NY, May 22, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- White Lion Studios, LLC and Off Beat Cinema (a two-hour hosted movie show that airs on television stations throughout the United States originating from WKBW-TV in Buffalo, New York) announce "Attack of the Killer Shrews!", a film by Ken Cosentino, will make its National Television debutSaturday, May 26, 2018 at 10p.m. on RetroTV stations nationwide and just a couple of hours later at midnight on WBBZ-TV, Western NY's local affiliate of MeTV.
Attack of the Killer Shrews, the wildly entertaining splatstick remake of the 1959 cult classic "Killer Shrews" is coming to a living room near you. Starring Bill Kennedy as Sheriff Martin Blake, Liz Houlihan as B-movie Scream Queen Fiona Rae, and Jonathan Rogers as high brow professor & author Charles Perry, this deliberately awful display of puppetry follows a group of misfits as they defend the world against an invasion of monstrous killer shrews. "We are grateful for the opportunity to expand the Shrewniverse while hopefully gaining new friends and fans to bring them along with us on this wacky roller coaster ride," says White Lion Studios President Bill Kennedy.
Complete with horrible shrew puppets and a special cameo by Lloyd Kaufman of Troma Entertainment, Attack of the Killer Shrews combines Mel Brooks style humor with a classic drive-in creature feature.
"Ken Cosentino is a brilliant director,” says Kaufman who first met Ken on Troma’s Return to Return to Class of Nuke ‘Em High Volume 1 & Volume 2. “Troma has a history of finding young, talented filmmakers, including Trey Parker and James Gunn, and I believe Ken Cosentino will have his place among them,” says Kaufman.
Other cast members include: Marcus Ganci-Rotella (Lewis) who is Professor Perry's slimy literary agent, Cheryl Szymczak (Cassandra) Lewis' better half, Mick O'Keefe (Murdock) the crazy scientist responsible for the madness, Baird Hageman (Wayne) Sheriff Blake's deputy and "his cousin", Bill Brown (Wilkens) the disgruntled Scotsman who is enduring Round 2 with the Shrews, and James Ventry (Captain Jack Frost) leader of the military sent to end this outbreak.
