Some movies just presell themselves the moment you hear about them. Cub is one of those movies. It’s all about a group of Cub Scouts who are hunted by a scary guy. The genius part: The guy fills the forest with all kinds of crazy awesome traps. So if you’re worried about watching little kiddies get killed in a variety of unpleasant ways, maybe you should stick with Home Alone.
This extremely well put together trailer only makes the wait worse. It starts with a Cub Scout singing the Esperanto hit “I Wanna B UR Somebody Special, K?” As the rest of his troop joins in, we get flashes of a bunch of crazy violent action. A couple times it flashes to the culprit, who appears to be covered in slime or something.
I fiercely want to see this movie. It’s playing this year’s TIFF Midnight Madness, but I can’t see it. My bedtime is 11:30.
