Product Description

Each year, movie studios spend untold millions of dollars trying to seek out the best combination of actor, special effects, and plot that will result in financial windfall and Oscar success. Alas, no more are the days of the penniless director lighting plastic models on fire and dressing in a gorilla suit as part of a personal quest to create something truly terrible.

Now you can relive that romantic bygone era in Night of the Ill-Tempered Squirrel!

Ignore the critics. Ignore precedence. Ignore reason. Make the bad movie your heart calls you to. Unfortunately, the road to failure is fraught with obstacles. Your friends will try all sorts of underhanded tricks to make you succeed, like pawning off their Oscar-winning method actor on you and stealing your dog, Hank, to star in their own movie. Just be strong and don't give up your vision. Making a bad movie has never been so hard.

Great beer and pretzels game!
August 22, 2004

There are some games you play for the mind-bending strategic value. This is not one of those games. Night of the Ill-Tempered Squirrel pits you against a group of B-movie creators in an effort to make the most hideous film ever put on celluloid.

Ultimately, it is this fact - that your goal is to make things as lousy as possible - that makes this game entertaining indeed. Announcing some typical movie names (Blood, Blood, Blood!) and any of a variety of special effects (Blue Screen Wizardry all the way down to Play-Doh Claymation) is definitely the highlight of any round of this one.
