That Ain't Right

So a new image has leaked from the upcoming Smurfs movie and I've got to say that it's scarier than anything I've ever seen in a horror movie. Oh I'm sure it's all grainy and grayscale because some staffer snapped a shot of a grayscale test still with a surreptitious cell phone or some such, but damned if it isn't fricking creepy. It's like a found footage horror film mixed with a children's cartoon. That smurf just looks like he's on his way from a multiple homicide, doesn't he?

But ... maybe it's real ... maybe the director snapped and is secretly making the torture porn version of The Smurfs under the masquerade of children's entertainment. Oh it'll have shiny friendly packaging, and a happy colorful first few minutes to get parents nice and comfortable, but then BAM! In comes Slasher Smurf with a machete.

Yeah, I'd watch that.
