With her Play Doh-y silicon face, soulless side-eye and keen fashion sense, the internet absolutely lost it when M3GAN arrived on the scene last October. She could drop deliciously shady one-liners and unnerving TikTok dances just as flawlessly as she could hunt down her victims on all fours. She was a star.
The much-hyped and critically acclaimed sci-fi horror comedy “M3GAN” has resonated with audiences with its skepticism of technology, but that didn’t stop director Gerard Johnstone from checking his phone every few minutes when the trailer was first released. Faster than you can say, “This is the part where you run,” “M3GAN” amassed a rapturous fandom, spawned countless memes and earned the admiration of celebrities from drag icons Trixie Mattel to rapper Megan Thee Stallion. She appeared on the cover of this month’s issue of Fangoria, feuded with Chucky on Twitter and staked her claim as a queer icon and the evil doll of a generation.
