Kevin Smith Reminds us "Killroy Was Here"
The New Jersey writer/director puts a horror spin on a classic character.
Kevin Smith's next film is a horror anthology film inspired by the famous "Kilroy was here" grafitti that was popular around World War II. However, Smith's version of the famous character is a baby-eating boogeyman from the swamps of Florida. More specifically he described the beast as “the Golem, the Boogeyman, and the Grim Reaper combined.” Not much else is currently known about Killroy. Filming is currently ongoing in the Sunshine State following a hiatus for the holiday and a recent post by Smith has revealed his daughter Harley Quinn Smith has a role in Killroy Was Here as well. Harley has previously starred in other Smith movies such as Tusk and Yoga Hosers.
