The Dark Side Of ‘Full House’: Never Before Seen On TV (Video)

Remember the loving, big-family-fun dynamic of the 80s and 90s sitcom, “Full House?” The innocence of the show made it a comedy appropriate for the whole family, and you’d never think of central, single dad figure Bob Saget as anything other than kind and even, perhaps, heroic.

Now, this haunting trailer lets you into the dark side of this “joyous family romp.” An assignment for the Seattle Film Institute re-imagines “Full House” with Saget as the evil, abusive protagonist, while his little girls and the famed Uncle Jesse cower from him in fear. Created by Jay Somsen, the clever assignment aimed to use real TV show footage to send a completely different message from what the popular sitcom originally intended.
