Made for virtually no money, this film was created by the McCain Brothers, who called in favors from friends, actor buddies and news reporters around the world, they had met on their travels as both actors and newsmen, themselves.

Tumbleweeds were shipped from Texas to various parts of the United States and world so they could get on location footage of tumbleweed attacks.

    The idea of tumble weeds coming alive & killing people is an interesting albeit ridiculous idea. But haven't we seen some crazy ideas come down the pipeline in the horror genre before? However the writers/producers don't take themselves any more serious than you will take the movie. Watch with the idea that this was made on no budget by a couple of guys whose primary experience is in the talk show/news industry and you will be able to laugh along! I gave it four stars because it is low budget and most of the actors are obviously amateur even though I personally know Butch McCain (My Name is Bruce) ...I should have been easier on him. But I know his real talent is more in the acting/voice and even singing area than writing or directing! Still Killer Tumbleweeds is a fun watch mainly because of the concept and maybe one day a big studio will pick it up remake it into a legit horror or horror/comedy!
