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.
