Mickey Mouse has officially entered the public domain – and it didn’t take long for someone to turn him into a homicidal maniac.

On Monday, we were treated to the first trailer for Mickey’s Mouse Trap, a horror film where a killer in a Mickey mask preys on a group of young people trapped inside an arcade.

The trailer was released just hours after the original ‘Steamboat Willie’ version of Mickey Mouse entered the public domain – in fact, footage from the original 1928 short appears in the trailer.

The same thing happened last year with Winnie the Pooh and the horror film Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey.

Mickey’s Mouse Trap is expected to be released in March.

Do you think Disney will try to shut down this movie?  What other children’s characters would make an entertaining horror film?
