Hook reimagined as a Peter Pan horror movie actually works really well

Steven Spielberg’s Hook is a modern classic, casting Robin Williams as an adult Peter Pan who has to reconnect with his inner child and return to Neverland when his children are kidnapped. But, what if they turned the focus back on Dustin Hoffman's Captain Hook?

That’s the premise of a new fan trailer that uses footage from the film to turn the fantasy adventure into a straight-up horror film, zeroing in on the idea of a man with a hook hand breaking into a home and stealing children. It’s actually pretty chilling, and it’s amazing to see how recutting just a few scenes from this family adventure turns it into something that looks like an R-rated scare-fest.

That kidnapping scene is scary stuff, and taking it seriously only makes it scarier. Especially when the momentum ramps up and they go to quick cuts of frightening images, all of which are sourced from the film itself.
