The Internet likes to get creative. Between the Hail Hydra memes and the Sad Batman memes, no image or quote is safe from the wrath of the internet, not even the cutest of things like Paddington Bear. The iconic children’s literary character will be turned into a film this Christmas, and The Weinstein Company has released a new image to help promote the film – which stars Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters and Jim Broadben.

So while the photo itself doesn’t generate any interest, how people have spliced the cuddly Paddington into demented and scary scenes from fan favorite horror movies is something that will get your attention. Using the #creepypaddington on Twitter or Tumblr, you find a treasure trove of images of Paddington Bear photoshopped into some scary movies, which are pretty hilarious to say the least.

Thank you.’ They offer him a temporary home whilst he searches for the explorer who impressed Aunt Lucy all those years before.

But when Paddington catches the eye of a sinister, seductive taxidermist, it isn’t long before his home – and very existence – is under threat …
