** THE NEW YORK TIMES RECOMMENDED THE SHOW, CALLING IT “EXHAUSTIC” **

Comedian Kevin Maher presents an obsessive look at the Animal Attack genre: from recent CGI beasts to the nature-gone-wrong films of the Drive-In era. This two-hour multi-media show includes dozens of film clips featuring crazed cats, angry bears, giant spiders, Freudian snakes, killer cockroaches, a racist dog and much more.

GUESTS INCLUDED:

  • Jon Abrams (Editor-in-Chief, Daily Grindhouse) on chimp attacks
  • Wendy Mays (creator of SPACE CAT) looked at psychotic cat movies
  • Matt Glasson (co-host, Kevin & Matt Geek Out About Zombies) presented a history of killer bugs, from TARANTULA to PHASE IV.
  • Tom Blunt (film blogger and variety show host) looks at the doom cake in Alfred Hitchcock’s THE BIRDS and the trope of killer bees.

Plus: Kevin hand-picked some of his favorite scenes from the genre, including: the most pretentious animal incident, best gratuitous animal attack, A-list actors doing animal attacks, and cinema’s fakest reptile (hint: it’s not DinoCroc).
