Mickey’s Mousetrap: Trailer Talk

On New Year’s Day, Disney’s Steamboat Willie (a character that Mickey Mouse played in his first ever appearance) was made public domain. And just the book version of Winnie the Pooh going public domain, this can only mean one thing: a horror movie will be made around that specific character. 

‘Mickey’s Mousetrap’ is a slasher film set in a jungle gym where a group of teens have the unfortunate opportunity of coming face-to-face with a Mickey mask wearing killer.



Just like ‘Winnie the Pooh: Blood & Honey’ that was released only last year, ‘Mickey’s Mousetrap’ looks like a low budget, badly acted slasher film. While there are some interesting shots in the trailer it’s nothing worthy of noting. But the film does look to have some bad humour and self-awareness about it; the short of ‘Steamboat Willie’ is shown multiple times throughout the trailer and the character’s name is mentioned, something that can be done now that the character is in public domain. But the trailer is far too long for what the film actually is; it would’ve been better and had more impact if it were a 30 second to 1-minute teaser.

To no one’s surprise, another beloved character has immediately been pulled into the horror genre, proving that, once a character enters public domain, they’ll be getting the slasher treatment. But, through its goofiness and poor execution, I can’t help but be tempted to watch it. Bad horror films are a popular genre, and I can’t help but be intrigued by this.
