Filmmaker and critic Bobby Burns recut the Home Alone trailer to show what the light-hearted Christmas comedy would look like if it were a horror film.

It's amazing what a change in music will do to a film. The scenes, expertly reassembled by Burns, are accompanied by a haunting melody that changes the entire tone.

The original film centers around an eight-year-old named Kevin who, after being forgotten at home by his family as they leave for Christmas vacation, is forced to defend his home from burglars. In Burns' updated version, however, Kevin is a child who values his alone time so much, he will go to any length to get it. Violent and slightly disturbing, this recut trailer will make you rethink a childhood classic.
