Rating: C- -- If you get a few laughs from the bizarre acting and dumb story, that's the most you can expect from this bad film. Full Review

The film's pre-credit voiceover is laughable, and the opening lines of dialogue not much better, but I don't think it deserves its much-maligned reputation

Rating: 3/5 -- Too campily amusing not to like.

Rating: 0/5 -- Carpet remnants attack! Very funny "MST3K" version, unwatchable on its own.

Description by OLDIES.com:

The "Alpha Video Rewind Series" is an ever-growing collection of specially-selected films from our vast library on DVD, now in collectible retro-style packaging inspired by VHS cover art from that format's heyday! Every Alpha Video Rewind Series title also includes a free collectible postcard.

Sailing to a remote and deserted island, Captain Thorne Sherman delivers supplies to scientist Dr. Craigis, who is anxious to have his daughter, Ann, join the skipper on his return voyage. And for good reason: Dr. Craigis and his assistants have accidentally wrecked biological havoc by spawning mutant shrews that are starving for food - especially humans! Sherman must fight for survival while fending off these savage creatures. Surrounded by the bloodthirsty beasts, he concocts a desperate escape plan that will keep viewers' hearts pumping with excitement. Shot in Texas on an extremely low budget, The Killer Shrews is well acted and tensely written and has justifiably become a minor classic of its genre.
