Recutting movie trailers into opposing genres is nothing new. It became an internet phenomenon when Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining was transformed into a drama, and was taken to new levels when Mary Poppins became a horror film.
Next up, Chris Columbus’ 1993 comedy Mrs. Doubtfire, where Peter Javidpour’s has recut the trailer that re-envisions the Robin Williams starrer as a horror film in the vein of The Stepfather. His synopsis? “An unemployed actor undergoes a drastic transformation in a twisted attempt to regain the trust of his estranged family.”
A little bonus has also been added inside, JFF. The below television commercial for Wolfman Computers channels “Tim & Eric.” Howl if you’d buy anything from this guy.
