The Movie trailer turns this year into a horror movie

Watch the trailer, created by Friend Dog Studios, below. No, literally - 2016 has been made into a horror movie trailer.

For many, 2016 will be remembered as a perfectly good year turned sour no thanks to the passing of some of our favourite celebrities.

Will the heroes (or by extension - us) survive the remaining few days of the year?

Auld Lang Syne is sung in a child's voice as the couple and their friends arm themselves with weapons to protect themselves from the horror that is this year.

The filmmakers have tapped into the zeitgeist of this moment as the year comes to a close-less celebratory than defiant: "Fuck 2016" is the theme of New Year's parties Los Angeles to Louisville, from NY to Amsterdam, turning the year-end revelry into a wake with bottle service. The trio also produced an amazingly fitting series of videos called "Drunk Trump", which takes audio clips from Trump's interviews and rallies and feeds them to your average drunk, racist neighbor.

Other notable 2016 instances parodied in the trailer include Samsung Galaxy S7 phones exploding, Britain voting to leave the European Union and the election of Donald Trump as president of the U.S. I don't know about you, but I kind of want to see the rest of it?
