2016: The Movie Trailer Parody Turns This Terrible Year Into an Eerily Believable Horror Movie

Come on. We were all thinking it.

Despite arguments that 2016 isn’t actually the worst year ever, it certainly hasn’t been good, and many of the things that have transpired would be hard to believe even in fiction, let alone real life. If there’s one genre where it all works surprisingly well, though, it’s horror, and this 2016: The Movie parody trailer is a pretty accurate depiction of how we’ll all probably remember this year.

Really, the worst part is the sequel will probably go even more over the top. 2017: The Movie is going to be absurd.
