Zombeavers director tackles horror-movie tropes with phony preview for The Drone

Posted on

What would happen if a drone became sentient? That’s the question raised—and answered!—by the new, fake trailer for a phony horror flick called The Drone. The clip was directed by Jordan Rubin, the filmmaker responsible for the equally inane but very-much real Zombeavers, and nicely parodies the tropes of the terror genre, from the idyllic start through the Quarantine-esque conclusion. 

But here’s our question: is the idea of a cursed, sentient drone any more preposterous than that of a zombie beaver?
