Home Alone is no doubt one of the Christmas cult classics that marks the presence of the holiday season. And thanks to Macaulay Culkin, our childhood memories of Kevin McAllister are completely destroyed by a creepy video he recently put out.
According to the Wrap, Culkin reprised his role of Kevin McAllister in a web series called “DRYVRS,” and the adult rendition is absolutely terrifying. The adult version of Kevin is not only physically terrifying to look at, but he also appears to be psychologically damaged, supposedly due to his childhood trauma.
In the creepy Home Alone spinoff video, a disturbed Kevin, who has a sweet spot for smoking, dating a woman with a cocaine habit and using the “F word,” says, “I had to fend off my house from two psychopath home invaders. I was just a kid. I mean, I still have nightmares about this bald weirdo dude chasing me around.”
The creepy video escalates at the end with a grown up Kevin fending off a would-be carjacker by using a more torturous version of the antics he used as a child to fend off robbers Harry and Marv.
To put it mildly, Home Alone fans worldwide are curious at best, and in some cases downright disturbed. Here are a few of the best fan responses, that sum up what the rest of us are thinking.
I wonder what Christmas is like at Macauley Culkin’s house

Even Home Alone co-star Daniel Stern couldn’t help but respond with an equally bizarre video. Stern played the role of robber, Marv, in the first two Home Alone movies.
According to Rolling Stone, in the rebuttal video, Marv also suffers from psychological trauma in the form of PTSD from all the antics he suffered at the hands of Kevin McAllister. His video is shot in a dark room with Marv wearing a hoodie. The premise of the video is him calling out to his robber buddy, Harry, for help because he’s afraid of grown-up Kevin.
In the sinister video response, Marv yells, “I saw it on the Internet! The kid is coming to get us! He’s coming for all the home invaders and he’s gonna come get us. He hit me in the head with a brick … the iron … he electrocuted me! Please Harry, I’m home … alone … and I’m scared!”
So far it seems the only one who hasn’t responded to grown-up Kevin’s threat is Joe Pesci, AKA Harry from the Home Alone series. With the way the other two videos turned out, it seems safe to assume that Home Alone fans may not want to see anymore ‘where are they now’ videos of their favorite characters.
If you’re a die-hard Home Alone fan and you still want to watch the video, you can do that here. But, don’t say we didn’t warn you. It just might ruin your favorite Christmas movie and all those happy memories from your childhood.
