So I wasn’t going to do a trailer round-up this week, because frankly all the good stuff has already been covered (like If Beale Street Could Talk or Mary Poppins Returns or, what was it? Oh yeah: CAPTAIN MARVEL). But then word of mouth (i.e. Kristy, to Dustin, to Pajiba Slack) brought this mysterious trailer to my attention. And honestly? There’s no need to bother scraping the barrel to find anything else to post with it. It’s a goddamn murder unicorn. Not a real one, but a carousel one. And it kills people with its horn AND BY DRIVING A F*CKING CAR AT THEM.
So yeah. Just watch this. Over and over, for the rest of the day. You’re welcome.
CarousHELL was either released in 2016, or will be released in 2019. So, sometime in that 3-year window, based on the 2 minutes of research I performed before rewatching the trailer for the 5th time. It was directed by Steve Rudzinski, a man with many other horror films to his name, but who did not make Rubber, the movie about the killer tire that seems like a spiritual predecessor to this one.
Also, here’s a poster for it, in which the murderous unicorn does not at all look like the murderous unicorn in the film.
Murder Unicorns AND The Winchesters?! My work here is done. Happy Friday, folks!
