The Heist Trailer Achieves Peak ‘Creepy Children’s Song’

Well, this is it. We’ve taken the “creepy versions of children’s songs in movie trailers” thing to its logical extreme: The overseas preview for the upcoming heist thriller Heist* (in which Jeffrey Dean Morgan ends up on a city bus after a robbery gone wrong) is soundtracked by a somber, minor-key version of “The Wheels on the Bus Go Round and Round.” Every other movie trailer hoping to use a creepy children’s song had better step it the F up.

* This post originally called the film by its former title, Bus 657, and implied that the trailer below was its U.S. trailer. You can watch the American trailer — which does not feature a creepy choir — here
