Little known fact about Home Alone.

In the original script, the kid captures the theives -- who you are supposed to root for -- and tortures them mercilessly. It was supposed to be a "Lil' Bastard" horror flick (a la The Omen).

Dammit. That actually sounds like a movie I saw once, where people break into someone's house, who is actually a psycho, and the person ties them up and tortures them. Did I imagine this?

It's been years since I've seen that movie but -- isn't that exactly what happens? Although in that slap-stick / cartoon way where you can pretend that the kid isn't actually a complete monster? I seem to recall electrocution.

No, the kid merely foils the theives and everything is done with the pretense of self-defense. In the original script the theives are captured in the basement and subjected to torture and you follow their exploits as they try to escape. BLOOD IS DRAWN

"Home Alone" begins to mean that no one is there to tell the kid not to do the terrible things, or help the theives.
