Some of my Favourite Film Parodies

...In video format!

I rarely do entries that are primarily videos, but I thought today would be a good day to share with you some of my favourite cleverly edited film parody trailers or videos. As a film fan, I run into these fairly often, and have always admired the skill (and amount of cleverness) required to make these. I would never be able to do such a thing!

Brokeback to the Future

A look at what it would be like if Doc and Marty were secret lovers:

Titanic: Two the Surface

This one is completely ridiculous, but the title outlines the basic premise: what if Jack were thawed and brought back to life?

The Shining Recut

Ever wonder what The Shining would be like as a romantic comedy?

Mary Poppins as a horror film

Enough said:

The PG 300 trailer:

I find this one so "out there", that I can't help but laugh. It definitely does not have the quality of the other ones, but it is amusing enough:

I hope these brighten your day!


  1. I am deeply disturbed by the Shining parody.

  2. These are amazing. The Shining is particularly fine - and Solsbury Hill is the icing on the cake. My favorite Peter Gabriel song makes every occasion a happy occasion!

    Great post!!

  3. Thanks! I thought the song choice in that one was particularly effective--I laughed and laughed when I first saw it.
