Following in the wake of Red State and Tusk, Kevin Smith returns to horror with Killroy Was Here, which originally began as a Krampus film before being re-written. The horror-comedy creature anthology was inspired by the “KilRoy Was Here” graffiti that was prominent during World War II, and Smith shared the bloody official trailer out of [email protected] today.
During the SDCC panel today, Smith compared his latest horror movie to Creepshow, while going on to note that it’s also in the same vein as our own anthology film V/H/S.
Smith teased, “It’s got a theme that runs through it, and all these little stories that happen around [Killroy]. He’s kinda like a kid Avenger. If you fuck with kids, Killroy will show up. And he looks wonderfully goofy. Bald head and a nose that hangs over the fence. [Robert Kurtzman] designed something that’s kinda horrifying but it’s also goofy at the same time.”
Check out the official trailer below!
Killroy Was Here comes courtesy of Smodcast Pictures & Semkor Productions in association with Ringling College of Art & Design. The plan is to release the anthology in early 2021.
The cast includes Jason Mewes and Chris Jericho.
Smith directed and wrote the script with Andy McElfresh.
