New 'M3GAN' clip shows killer doll rebelling against her creator
Allison Williams plays M3GAN creator Gemma in an upcoming film.
It's hard to believe that 2023 is already upon us, and the Horror Calendar isn't wasting any time getting the bloody party started in the new year. The screams begin this Friday with genre icon James Wan and director Gerald Johnstone's Blumhouse's M3GAN. After a wildly funny marketing campaign filled with music from Taylor Swift and Billie Eilish, the film about an AI companion going bad finally hits theaters this Friday. In preparation, Universal released a new clip mocking M3GAN's malicious power grab.
In this clip, shared exclusively by Rolling Stone, Cardi (Violent McGrew) investigates her house in the middle of the night after believing she heard M3GAN's voice. Cardi tracks down her aunt Gemma (Alison Williams), but unbeknownst to her, her aunt is being threatened by an artificial intelligence she's created. M3GAN is more in line with classic gangster movies, it tells Gemma that if Cady enters the room, she will chop off her head. Gemma agrees and tells Cady she's just fixing M3GAN. Although Gemma tried to fight back, M3GAN pinned her to the table.
This clip is another great example of how the movie looked Blending its unique style of horror and comedy. The trailer focuses more on the comedic aspects of the movie, including moments like M3GAN dancing down the hallway to her next potential victim, but it all seems to be part of this new killer doll's terrifying role. This video does an excellent job of showing just how menacing M3GAN can be with just her emotionless voice and stare. She's not afraid to get violent, which we saw in another recently released clip involving hapless ears, but just hearing M3GAN threaten to rip her creator's head off is chilling, to say the least. Then in the next second, as they all fight for control, the brilliant humor begins.
M3GAN looks both creepy and fun at the moment. Beneath M3GAN's disturbingly innocent exterior, there's certainly a dark and classic Frankenstein's monster type story. Plus, amazing marketing has paved the way for the film to be a terribly good one. Judging by all the word of mouth and all-star cast in front of and behind the camera so far, M3GAN delivers a horror product, and then some.
M3GAN dances and kills her way To the cinema Friday, January 6. While horror fans anxiously wait, you can watch the new intense clip below.
