Lastly, as part of the Christmas cheer that came our way this year, we received an update on how Macaulay Culkin's Home Alone (1990) character Kevin McCallister fared in later life, with the actor reprising the role in an online video for web series DRYVRS. The clip, which featured Culkin reminiscing about his 'polka-groupie' mother and creating a branding iron out of a coat-hanger, was likely a nod towards 2015 being the 25th Anniversary of the film's release. But he wasn't the only actor from the original franchise, however, to join in the fun, with Daniel Stern the actor behind bumbling bandit Marv hosting a Reddit AMA on Christmas Eve, and recording yet another video response.
In his clip, we find the tables have turned, with Marv now the one that's home alone and faced with the prospect of a terrifying intruder. He's seen what Kevin grew up to become (a guy who apparently murdered a car-jacker), and he's begging Harry to come find him so he doesn't meet the same fate. Whilst the video is of course very tongue-in-cheek, it's a hilarious follow-up, and very fitting for a film that has stolen the hearts of audience members all over the world come Christmas time. It's also a great homage to the original, with Stern beginning the video with the trademark 'Harrrrry... Harrrrrrrrrrryyyyyyyyyy' line from the second film, before concluding with his washing-machine skeleton screams as the clip concludes.
When discussing the film during the Q&A time, Stern even mentioned which of the scenes was his favourite to shoot, and found he couldn't pass up the Tarantula moment from the first film. "They were all a ton of fun, [but] my favourite was having the tarantula crawl on my face. Not only was it really fun and funny to do but it was a personal challenge to overcome my fear of having something that ICKY and deadly crawling on my face. It was even freakier because I had to do that scream, which meant my mouth was wide open too - and I was afraid the little bastard might take a detour down my throat! AAAAAAAAAH!".
