Terror Alert: The Garbage Pail Kids Are Coming (Again)

Today in horrifying reboot news comes the stuff of past and future nightmares: "Michael Eisner’s The Tornante Company will finance and produce the development of a feature film based on Garbage Pail Kids, the trading card line published by Topps." Viral video/shorts helmer PES will direct based on the terrifying 1985 trading cards, which were previously adapted into one of the worst feature films of all time featuring the most disgusting child characters ever created who scared an entire generation of youngsters into not judging their freaky looking but well-meaning peers by their looks alone. Or something. So... yay? [Deadline]


  • The Winchester says:

    Good to see Eisner taking the message of the original film's hit song so well. Apparently we CAN do anything by working with each other, for good or for bad.

  • Jen, you wrote "viral shorts"... Garbage pail? Absolutely,
    kids. Save us, Waste Management guys!
    As to shorts--- let's quickly discuss BVDs. Did you
    know that in a different reality Hitler invented these
    underpants? Like the Volkswagen AND the autobahn,
    Hitler crafted the Bavarian Volks Diapieren. Unisex,
    for men und/oder women.
