Merry Jigsaw’s games, ya filthy animals.

The Saw film franchise has been captivating audiences with its mind-bending traps, masterminded by the enigmatic Jigsaw and his followers for almost two decades now.

But, in a fan theory that'll make your jaw drop, it seems like some fans have uncovered a startling connection between John Kramer and a seemingly innocent character from a totally different movie universe — Home Alone 's very own Kevin McCallister.

Now, you might be thinking, "What on earth could Kevin and John Kramer possibly have in common?" Well, as we dig deeper into the Home Alone films, we start noticing some eerie parallels that'll make you see Kevin in a whole new light.

In the Home Alone series, Kevin, portrayed by the young Macaulay Culkin, is known for his uncanny knack for setting up intricate traps to thwart intruders. While it's all played for laughs in the family-friendly movies, some fans have started to connect the dots and see some shocking resemblances between Kevin and Jigsaw.

The theory delves into Kevin's behavior throughout the Home Alone films. He's not just a master trap-setter; his penchant for inflicting pain and his sometimes disturbing displays of a sense of "justice" are traits that align with Jigsaw's twisted personality.

And let's not forget the uncanny visual resemblance between Kevin and Kramer, which makes it all the more intriguing to entertain the idea that they might be the same person — or at the very least, two sides of the same coin.

But here's where it gets even more mind-boggling. While the first Home Alone movie portrays Kevin as a resourceful kid defending his family home from goofy burglars, the sequel, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, takes a much darker turn.

In this installment, the Wet Bandits aren't interested in the McCallister family at all. Instead, they aim to rob a toy store far from Kevin's Chicago home. Kevin's response is alarming, as he constructs a chilling kill house in an abandoned New York City apartment building, which mirrors Jigsaw's knack for creating deadly traps.

As the story unfolds, Kevin torments the would-be burglars in increasingly gruesome ways, starting with bricks to the head and escalating to even more sinister methods. It's a serious departure from the innocent fun of the first movie and leaves us wondering whether Kevin McCallister hides a dark side that we didn't see in the family-friendly films.

Now, this fan theory might sound a bit outlandish, but it's a testament to the creativity and imagination of fans who enjoy connecting the dots between entirely different cinematic universes, adding layers of intrigue to beloved characters.

So, whether or not Kevin McAllister has a hidden dark side, this theory certainly offers a unique and rather unsettling perspective on a classic holiday film that we all thought we knew so well.
