I’m not sure the filmmakers behind ‘Karen‘ were going for outrageous comedy when they made the film, but it’s clear that’s what they got.
The first trailer for the film was dropped this past week, and it’s made a lot of noise online, mostly from people clowning on just how bad it looks.
‘Karen’ was directed by Coke Daniels and stars Taryn Manning (Orange is the New Black) in the titular role. The plot is pretty simple. A black family moves to a new neighborhood and is basically terrorized by their white neighbor, appropriately named Karen.
They have described this film as a ‘thriller’ so we’re assuming they weren’t actively trying to make a comedy, which somehow makes the trailer even more hilarious.
Several people on Twitter called out the filmmakers for trying to be Jordan Peele and failing terribly…
No release date has been announced, but we’ll be watching out for one.
