Red State and Tusk director Kevin Smith is making his return to horror with the new anthology film Killroy Was Here.
Killroy Was Here began as a Krampus movie but was re-written and morphed into a horror-comedy anthology inspired by the “Killroy Was Here” graffiti that popped up during World War II.
During the ComicCon @ Home panel, Smith shared the first trailer (below) and compared the film to Creepshow and V/H/S.
Smith also stated, “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. Baldhead 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.”
Smith’s fellow Jay and Silent Bob star and long time friend Jason Mewes stars alongside Chris Jericho. Ryan O’Nan, Azita Ghanizada, Betty Aberlin, Gregory Kelly, Brogan Hall, and Fedor Steer round out the cast with Justin Kucsulain playing the role of Killroy. Andy McElfresh co-wrote the script.
The movie hails from Smodcast Pictures and Semkor Productions in association with Ringling College of Art and Design.
Killroy Was Here is expected to be released in early 2021. Check out the bloody, brutal trailer, and let us know what you think.
