HAPPYTIME MURDERS looks crude, rude, and like an instant hit




HAPPYTIME MURDERS starts getting some early press and early reviews..

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER:


Brian Henson — son of the late Muppets creator Jim Henson and director of The Muppet Christmas Carol and Muppet Treasure Island— is back behind the camera in a new puppet-centric film, The Happytime Murders.

Unlike Henson’s previous endeavors, Happytime Murders certainly isn’t kid-friendly — and the NSFW debut trailer proves that.

BLOODY DISGUSTING:


The comedy is set in the underbelly of a Los Angeles where puppets and humans co-exist. Two clashing detectives, one human (Melissa McCarthy) and one puppet, are forced to work together to figure out who is brutally murdering the former cast of The Happytime Gang, a beloved classic puppet show.

Tweets came pouring in after the trailer was shown with Collider’s Steve Weintraubexplaining, “It ended with something as filthy as I’ve ever seen in a red band trailer and I loved every second of it.”
