Scary Movie

A few months ago I posted a revised trailer for The Shining -- as Salisbury Hill spins in the background, the master remixers tease the old mess-you-up-good thriller as a light-hearted family film.

With some clever edits and a new soundtrack, the film morphs from a "This movie won't just scare you, it'll fuck you up for life" special to a "Grab the kids, we musta missed this feel-good Nicholson vehicle a few decades ago" Nora Ephron crapfest.

The Brewer Patriot over at Salt in the Wound recently found another remixed trailer, this one taking a schmaltzy lovefest and turning it into an apparent heart-stopper ala Sleeping with the Enemy. Here's the new and improved Sleepless in Seattle.

**Also, check out this awesome story about a fight between two Swedish chefs, a melee that only "ended when one of the cooks apparently tried to drown the other in a 300 litres of boiling rice pudding." And I'm not kidding, but the Metro's version of the brawl said the fight apparently began when the chefs argued over the correct pronunciation of the title of the American Pie movies.**

Crazy People was an underrated movie.

I can't believe I killed that guy at the Indonesian embassy last night and got away with it.

Did you catch him stealing candy and cut off his hand?
