Home Alone, the box office blockbuster that is beloved by kids and adults alike, has been revisited this month by the hilarious stars. Macaulay Culkin first posted this video a couple of weeks ago where he reprises his role as Kevin McCallister.

If you recall, in the film Home Alone, Kevin was left at home accidentally as his family went on a winter vacation. So 8 year-old Kevin has to take care of himself, but quickly finds the situation to be more dire than he had anticipated, as two conmen are attempting to burglarize his home. In Culkin’s video, we see Kevin has been scarred by the experience.

But the absolute best part is the way that Daniel Stern, one of the burglars from Home Alone, has responded to video. He recently posted a video of his own, in character, trying to warn his friend and accomplice, Harry, of Kevin McCallister’s craziness.

. . .And this was just the beginning of Stern’s revisitation of Home Alone. Since the posting of the video, Stern has been filling his Facebook feed—and Reddit—with behind the scenes info about the filming of Home Alone.  Here’s everything we’ve learned from Stern so far. . .

Remember the scene where a spider crawls up Sterns face? Well, the spider was real. And Stern was genuinely terrified.

And how about the scene where Stern’s character is electrocuted by the water spigot? Apparently Stern did the scene for the first time on camera with no rehearsal. His squirming and shaking on the ground had director Chris Columbus shaking on the ground as well, but instead, Columbus was rolling with laughter.

If this isn’t enough to fuel your nostalgia, check out the Ask Me Anything Daniel Stern did yesterday on Reddit. Here’s a taste—when asked about any injuries he sustained making Home Alone, Stern had this to say:

He was also asked if he kept any props from the set. Here’s what Stern had to say about that:

I don’t know about you, but this pretty much guarantees that I’m going to watch Home Alone today with a huge mug of hot chocolate!
