Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree as a Horror Movie



The Tooth Fairy. Jack Frost. Any number of dolls. All childhood things that have been corrupted by the movies at some point into evil icons of horror.

And now the original plant that made us want to hug trees as youngsters is pissed off and wants in. Okay, so it’s not a real trailer – Silverstein’s estate would probably never allow it, though I suspect he would have appreciated the humor – but Funny or Die and Tyler Posey have done a pretty good job of imagining what if.

I think Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout would make a better villainess, myself. She lived in garbage, after all.
