In true Killer Chicks style, we're having fun re-imagining holiday movies as thrillers. Join in! What holiday movie would you like to see made into a thriller?
Joann: I LOVE It's A Wonderful Life. I've watched it every year since discovering the brilliance that is Jimmy Stewart and it never fails to make me cry. However, just once I wouldn't mind seeing George Bailey poison crotchety Mr. Potter with a few of Zuzu's petals or talk him into jumping off the bridge or stuff the money Potter steals from Uncle Billy down the old man's throat. Yeah...that'd be okay. Also, George would need to get away with it. He'd be Lecter, Dexter, and John Doe rolled into one sweet-talking psychopath.
JB: I'd pick Ruldoph, but despite expectations, I wouldn't turn him into an ostracized school shooter. Instead I'd let him have the last laugh.
Once upon a time, in a land far, far away (okay, the North Pole) there lived a disfigured reindeer with a weird, red, glowing nose named Rudolph. None of the other reindeer would play with him and they were known to call him names. Poor picked on Rudolph spent too much time playing violent video games.
Then one foggy Christmas Eve this old, fat dude had the nerve to come and say, “Rudolph with your nose so bright. Won’t you guide may sleigh tonight?”
And Rudolph said, “Hell no! Find your own way in the dark.”
So, idiots that they were, Dasher and Dancer, and Prancer and Vixen,
Comet and Cupid, and Donner and Blitzen flew off into the fog never to return again.
Rudolph is the only reindeer left.
THAT’S why he’s gone down in history.
Jenny: ROTFL! I'd like to see a thrilling twist on How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Imagine the Grinch is being hunted by a mob of vengeance-seeking Whoville Whos. After all, he's ruined their Christmas, and that's just not okay. They'd climb up to his mountain top home, and in organized SWAT-team formation, take him out. Then they'd cart his body back to town and stick his head (and just his head) on top of the town's Christmas tree. The moral of the story? Don't f-ck with Christmas, kids.
Have we blown your warp-o-meter yet, friends? If not, what holiday movie would you like to see made into a thriller?
