The Morning Watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of noteworthy videos from around the web. They could be video essays, fanmade productions, featurettes, short films, hilarious sketches, or just anything that has to do with our favorite movies and TV shows.

In this edition, a visual effects crew turns Kevin McCallister's battle plan from the end of Home Alone into a gruesome, R-rated massacre. Plus, Shazam! director David F. Sandberg reveals some lessons in filmmaking that he's learned while working on some big studio movies, and IT monster Pennywise the Dancing Clown is looking for love in all the wrong places as a contestant on the reality series The Bachelorette.

Normally, the visual effects crew from Corridor Crew is critiquing visual effects. But every now and then, they put their skills to the test in a fun way.

Learn about that and much more in this whole video.
