The ultimate destructive force… GIANT BABY MONSTER!
For the sequel to 1989’s hit Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, the script was completely flipped: instead of an electromagnetic shrinking machine making the characters ant-sized, an industrial-sized growth machine turns a baby into an enormous monster that would give Godzilla a run for his money. Okay, so the baby monster doesn’t actually kill anyone – Honey, I Blew Up the Kid was a family film, after all – but it doesn’t require all that much editing to turn the ’92 sequel into a Kaiju movie. And the folks over on YouTube channel Cinefix just did precisely that, god bless ’em.
The hilarious trailer re-imagines Honey, I Blew Up the Kid as an old-school Godzilla movie, using actual clips from the film and sound effects from the Big G himself. They even went so far as to lay Godzilla-authentic Japanese dialogue over the film’s actual English dialogue, allowing them to change what the characters are saying through the amusing use of English subtitles. The end result? Giant Baby Monster: the Godzilla movie you never knew you needed in your life.
Amazing how much you can change a movie in the editing room, isn’t it?
