Pixar’s ‘Up’ recut as a horror film is sufficiently terrifying

Because the internet loves to mash things up, even your dreams, some evil mastermind has sharpened his meat-cleaver to cut up a trailer for Pixar’s lovable film “Up” that sucks out all the happiness and joy and replaces it with a deep sense of foreboding and dread.

In this version our plucky old curmudgeon Carl is less than the ideal grandfather figure. It’s just further proof that there’s no movie, no matter how heartwarming, that can’t be turned into a chilling miasma with the right combination of visual effects, quick cutting, and eerie music.

Luckily it also works the other way around.
