If Harmony Korine Remade Ernest Scared Stupid, It Might Look Like This

Imagine the Jim Varney vs. Trolls Disney comedy from the '90s...only Ernest P. Worrell is now a flesh-eating zombie, the trolls are pedophiles in rubber masks, and the kids are all potential murderers in the making. The lo-fi video and the eerie metal tune by Creepoid - featuring repurposed soundbites from the original film - add up to something simultaneously cheesy and deeply unsettling, much like Korine's Trash Humpers.

The late, great Varney would probably be appalled to see his kid-friendly character get a horror makeover. I, however, am fascinated. And upset...but maybe in a good way? KnoWhutIMean?
