Drew Barrymore just recreated one of the most viral horror moments of 2022, and it’s every bit as weird as you’d expect.
In a clip from “The Drew Barrymore Show,” the host dressed up as the prepubescent killer humanoid doll from the horror movie “M3GAN” ahead of Allison Williams’ appearance on Wednesday’s episode of her daytime talk show.
Williams plays Gemma, the robotics engineer who created “Generative Model 3,” or M3GAN, a brutal artificial intelligence prototype in the eccentric film.
Wearing the character’s “killer” wardrobe — a cool dress and a bow scarf — Barrymore plays the undead slayer to the max, even adding a blonde wig and donning the doll’s blue contact lenses.
Recreate the creepy dolls viral dance backstage, the 47-year-old does an M3GAN-style spin, rolling and sparking, minus the bumpy twerking and cartwheels. Watch the clip below.
After the film’s release, M3GAN’s TikTok dance exploded on social media, with #M3GANDANCE garnering over 312 million views.
The sci-fi horror film follows an AI robot that is trained to act as a child’s guardian, but malfunctions, turning into a life-threatening machine for everyone except the child it’s supposed to protect.
The film stars Williams, Violet McGraw, Ronny Chieng, Brian Jordan Alvarez, Jen Van Epps, Lori Dungey, Stephane Garneau-Monten and Jenna Davis.
Last week, The Hollywood Reporter said a sequel to “M3GAN,” “M3GAN 2.0,” is in the works. The film is expected to hit theaters on January 17, 2025, according to THR.
“M3GAN” is now in theaters.
