Hundreds of Beavers Synopsis

Hundreds of Beavers is a silent comedy from the writing and directing team of Mike Cheslik and Ryland Brickson Cole Tews (Lake Michigan Monster). The latter stars in the film as Jack Kayak, who is aiming to become the world's greatest fur trapper and win the hand of The Furrier by killing hundreds of beavers. Travelling across his trapline, Jack has to make use of his increasing arsenal of tools to catch, raccoons, rabbits, wolves, and of course beavers.

My Thoughts on Hundreds of Beavers

With all the animals played by actors in giant mascot costumes, Hundreds of Beavers comes across like a live-action Looney Tunes cartoon mixed with the survival video game Don't Starve. The film even utilizes a scoreboard for all the animals Jack successfully kills, which are cashed in at the trading post for new tools and weapons. Even without a single line of dialogue, Hundreds of Beavers is an incredibly entertaining homage to the silent comedies of old.
