My favorite new trailer: ZOMBEAVERS

"Ward, the Beaver is at it again."
Coming soon...


NOTE: THIS IS AN ACTUAL MOVIE, IT'S NOT A TRAILER PARODY.

That is everything a trailer should be. Funny, sexy and makes me want to go see the movie.

Established movie studios could learn something from this.

I wonder if this is by the same studio that's doing that SQUIRRELS movie this year?

Man, I would have loved to be in the "pitch meeting" for that one.

Now we know there are two event movies for 2014. Sharknado 2 and Zombeavers.

...As foretold in the Book of Revelations.

All we need now is for Sony to change the title of the Spider-Man sequel, which stars Jamie Foxx as Electro, and call it The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Electro Boogaloo.

I had a case of that once, but the doctor gave me a shot and it went away.

If only it was a trailer for an early 70s movie. They knew what to do with an R rating. Here the climax will be one of those brats screaming "fuck" into her Iphone.

Finally, some serious beaver!

Living in Oregon, and an Oregon State alumni, I think that movie is awesome!

I keep intending to see "Night of the Lepus", the original deadpan horror with giant bloodthirsty rabbits, but can it possibly live up to the clips of rabbits more or less stampeding on tabletop miniatures?

Is that one of Moose's descendants we're seeing?

For those who don't know Moose was Eddie the dog from Frasier and My Dog Skip (as the elderly Skip). His son Enzo was the younger adult Skip and also performed as Eddie when Moose started getting too old for some of the tricks required in the role. Enzo also played one of the puppies that Eddie had sired in the show. Moose passed away in 2006 of natural causes, and Enzo in 2010 of cancer. Both were 14 years old.

Ken has talked many times about working with Eddie/Moose on this blog. To find the pertinent blog entries, all you have to do is do a search using "Eddie" or "Moose" or both (preferably in combination with "Frasier").

The reason I ask if it's a descendant is that I can't find anything on the Internet about Enzo having any offspring that have went into the business. There's nothing about it on Mathilde DeCagny's website, and the Zombeaver IMDB credits don't have a listing for the dog. I know that some of Moose's other offspring were given to some of the cast and crew of Frasier, so could it be one of them or their offspring? I know that from reading Rin Tin Tin: The Life and the Legend, Susan Orlean wrote that Lee Duncan eventually used other bloodlines when Rin Tin Tin's offspring were unsuitable for later performances, specifically live appearances and the TV revival in the 1950s (the original Rin Tin Tin was primarily a silent film sensation, although he did perform in some sound features, but he did pass away after his "stardom" began to wade). So maybe this was a case with Moose's bloodline. Although training has a lot to do with it, not all dogs in the same bloodline would take to the necessary training.

Cheerio,
Jeffro
