The best part of last night’s Edward Norton-hosted “Saturday Night Live” was this digital short, a mock trailer for the Wes Anderson-directed horror flick, “The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders.” It features all of the classic Wes Anderson tropes: actors like Owen Wilson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tilda Swinton, and Danny Glover; a pair of precocious children; cutesy, diorama-like sets; an array of artfully presented weapons, like a picture of Edith Piaf and a protractor; a totally twee plot; and, of course, a stop-motion mouse. Only this time, a scary murderer is on the loose. Watch above!
