Watch This: Finally, An Honest Trailer For “Home Alone”

Home Alone Honest Trailer
It's One Part "Ferris Bueller" And One Part "Saw"

A few years ago, my brother and I were sitting at a coffee shop, and all of a sudden he got this really horrified look on his face and said, “Do you realize at the end of ‘Home Alone,’ Joe Pesci was about to bite off all of Macaulay Culkin’s fingers, and he totally would have if that old man hadn’t walked in and knocked him out with a snow shovel?”

Daaaaaamn,” I said, and we both just sat there, contemplating the crazy, violent fever dream that was our favorite childhood Christmas movie. Don’t get me wrong, I still love “Home Alone,” it’s just that if it had been marketed honestly, well, the trailer would looked a lot more like the one above. [YouTube]
