Everything is Terror: “LEGO Movie” Gets Re-Cut as a Horror Film
“In a world where everything is awesome…” this fake trailer begins. And then things get dark.
“The LEGO Movie” was a colorful, child-friendly, crowd-pleasing hit. This trailer is none of those things. But it does shine a light on all the actually scary events that take place in the film. Homicidal robots, a terrifying dark lord intent on controlling the world, a bottomless pit of insanity. In the best tradition of fake movie trailers — Scary Mary Poppins being a classic in the genre — this video turns a children’s movie into a horror show. And we would still totally watch it.
