Drew Barrymore just recreated one of the most viral horror moments of 2022 — and it’s just as weird as you might expect.
In a clip from The Drew Barrymore Show, the host dresses up as the murderous, prepubescent humanoid doll from the horror film M3GAN before Allison Williams’ appearance on Wednesday’s daytime episode of her talk show.
Williams plays Gemma, the robotics engineer who created “Model 3 Generative” or M3GAN, a brutal artificial intelligence prototype, in the eerie film.
Barrymore wears the character’s “killer” wardrobe – a sheath dress and a bow tie – and best embodies the lifeless Slayer, even sporting a blonde wig and the doll’s blue contact lenses.
The 47-year-old recreates the creepy doll’s viral dance backstage, hitting a move involving a twirl, body roll and shimmy à la M3GAN style – without the crazy twerking and cartwheels. See the clip below.
Following the film’s release, M3GAN’s TikTok-like dance has since exploded on social media, with #M3GANDANCE amassing more than 312 million views.
The sci-fi horror film follows an AI robot that is trained to act as a guardian for a child, but malfunctions and turns into a life-threatening machine for all but the child it is tasked with protecting.
Chiller stars Williams, Violet McGraw, Ronny Chieng, Brian Jordan Alvarez, Jen Van Epps, Lori Dungey, Stephane Garneau-Monten and Jenna Davis.
Last week, said that a sequel to M3GAN, M3GAN 2.0, is in the works. According to THR, the film is slated to hit theaters on January 17, 2025.
M3GAN is in theaters now.
