Dan is pretty interested in skulls lately.

A dump worker at Calgary-area landfill reported finding some sort of snuff film starring Dan Aykroyd, prompting a quick and dirty murder investigation in which cops found out ... it was a scene from the actor's 1990 disaster Loose Cannons. We all knew that one would kill his career somehow.

The landfill worker found a film reel and couldn't tell who the person was, but he could see the person on the negative standing over a bloodied body, TMZ reports. He took it to cops who ascertained it was Aykroyd after cleaning the celluloid.

Ever thorough, investigators contacted Aykroyd's people and found out it was the so-called comedy, about a cop with multiple personalites co-starring Gene Hackman. It's no surprise the police didn't know it, because it was a monstrous failure. Even Aykroyd has disowned it, telling the site, "The movie should have been left in the landfill where it belongs."
