No one wants to taint your memories of The Lego Movie, but a new fan-made trailer for the film casts the brick-tastic blockbuster in a whole new light.

The Lego Movie isn’t the first family film to get twisted into something far darker. Perhaps one of the most famous – “Scary Mary,” a horror movie re-envisioning of Mary Poppins – hit the Internet way back in 2006.
