Congrats, Buzzfeed, you just punked us with this movie about “Drop Bears,” which are basically killer koalas. The bloodthirsty fuzzballs that fling themselves from trees at hikers don’t actually exist (it’s just Australian lore intended to spook people), but the Kickstarter for the movie Drop Bears is real as far as we can tell.
There’s a trailer for it as well, which is a bit bloody and NSFW. Writer and director Stephen Banham and producer Peta Astbury (The Marriage of Figaro) are behind the upcoming horror comedy that promises gory backpacking action with ferocious bears that feast on human flesh. If you want to donate to the cause, click over to the campaign page. Otherwise, chuckle at the sight of an evil koala clinging to the leg of a crazed woman — because what else are you going to do with your day?
