Kevin Smith surprised fans this past weekend during the Comic-Con at Home event by releasing the first trailer for his upcoming horror anthology film, Killroy Was Here.
The trailer is pretty damn gory, so if that’s not your thing, you might want to skip this.
The movie was inspired by the ‘Kilroy Was Here’ graffiti depicting a bald man with a large nose peeking over a wall.
Kilroy was here is an American symbol that became popular during World War II, typically seen in graffiti. Its origin is debated, but the phrase and the distinctive accompanying doodle became associated with GIs in the 1940s
According to the report, this idea for Smith started out as a Christmas movie about Krampus, but then Michael Dougherty beat him to the punch, so Smith and his co-writer changed things up.
Smith and co-writer Andy McElfresh had planned for each segment to have a different director before Smith ultimately decided to direct the whole film himself and change up several segments, cutting one that would’ve involved Hitler.
This movie is expected to be released sometime in 2021. Check out the trailer below…
