Watch: SNL Trailer for Wes Anderson Horror Film Starring Edward Norton as Owen Wilson

     October 27, 2013


Last night’s Edward Norton-hosted episode of Saturday Night Live had a little parody fun with the holiday season, this time turning its focus to filmmaker Wes Anderson’s distinct style.  The trailer for the fake Anderson-directed horror film The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders applies the director’s style to the horror genre, complete with Norton doing a spot-on Owen Wilson impression and Alec Baldwin making a cameo as the film’s narrator.  It’s pretty funny, if a bit on the nose.  Anderson’s an easy target so I was hoping for something a tad more substantive, but the SNL team mostly resigned itself to  quick cameos of the director’s most famous characters.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  Anderson’s latest film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, opens in theaters on March 7, 2014.
