You remember in The Brave Little Toaster cartoon when childhood items got tossed out and it was really sad watching them try to get back home? Well, Benny Loves You is about a stuffed animal that gets tossed out but skips the sad part and goes right to homicidal maniac.
The synopsis for Benny Loves You goes like this:
After the accidental death of his parents, Jack’s comfortable lifestyle comes to an end and he must sell his family home. Desperate to improve his life, Jack throws out his childhood belongings including his beloved plush, Benny. It’s a move that has disastrous consequences when Benny springs to life with deadly intentions!
It’s a bit of Brave Little Toaster meets Child’s Play and I’m totally here for that fresh take. Plus, Benny is cute as heck. Am I the only one that wants a knife-yielding Benny now? I mean as long as he doesn’t try to come to life and kill me… but then again I would never throw the sweet boy away.
Benny Loves You lands in theaters on May 7 and on VOD beginning May 11 with Blu-Ray set to release June 8.
