Video: HISHE does Fantastic Four

20th Century Fox's reboot of Fantastic Four franchise is perhaps the single most disappointing film of the last decade (you know, after we recovered from the body blow that was M. Night Shyamalan's career).

The new adaptation of Marvel’s first family was a sloppy mess that was so bad it wasn't even fun to laugh at.  It’s hard to find many redeeming qualities in this movie, especially with a finale that makes no sense at all, brought about by a villain who has no real motivation or depth, fighting some of the most boring iterations of superheroes ever seen on film, despite being played by some of the brightest young stars in Hollywood.  The honest trailer does suggest a silver lining, though.  A making-of featturette about the production would be fascinating.

"Invaders" is a darkly humorous horror film that puts a holiday spin on the classic home invasion horror trope.  In it, a pair of home invaders consider their potential character choices just prior to their planned invasion.  They plan to break into a home and murder a family with a pair of axes, but things don't go quite the way that they had hoped.  The results are hilarious.
