Hey now, hey now, this is what nightmares are made of.

The Lizzie McGuire Movie trailer has been given the thriller treatment, thanks to YouTuber Elle Mills. Fans of the 2003 movie, which was based on the Disney Channel show Lizzie McGuire, starring Hilary Duff, know that there was always something off about Paolo, the Italian singer who aggressively woos Lizzie in Rome. At the end, he turns out to be not so nice. But this video takes his story a step darker by recasting him as a potential killer.

Gordo’s concern about Lizzie running around Rome with him suddenly seems a lot more serious. And you’ll probably never see Paolo the same way again either.

Watch the video above.

A few months ago, Mills did a similarly impressive job giving High School Musical a Fifty Shades of Grey edge. You can check that out below.
