What if "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" was done as (even more of a) horror movie? And a cheesy "dead teenager" type summer horror movie? The cast would be young nobodies except for maybe one established star now looking for work like... Christoper Lloyd?

Gobstopper

Okay, it's not actually a real movie, just a spoof trailer that came out a little while ago. (I guess Christopher Lloyd had a free weekend and a good sense of humor?) Depp's champion of a performance as the slightly-kinda-psychotic Wonka is unchallenged. But this trailer by itself is better than several "real" movies I've seen over the years, honestly.

Also check out the "movie" website and a fun making-of video. It must've been odd filming a horror trailer where most of the shots are either dialog-free or screaming. :D

I thought it WAS a horror movie.

It's like a horror movie in disguise. The more you think about it, the more Wonka seems dangerously psychopathic. ("Wait, he stood by while a kid took an invention he created and.... Ew.") It's a modern Grimm's fairy tale in terms of creeping weirdness.

Yes. The song about the little dwarfy guys is distinctly ominous, and Wonka doesn't care who gets hurt. He's a sociopath.
