Recut movie trailers

YouTube users have been creating movie trailers that make a well known movie look like it is a movie of a completely different genre. With the use of the right clips, music, and fonts, you will be amazed how different a movie can seem. Makes you think hard about the whole idea of movie trailers and how deceiving they can be. Some of these recut trailers are better than others (some people tend to make them way too long--3:00 is too long for a trailer), but I get a great kick out of some of them. Examples are:

Office Space as a thriller

When Harry Met Sally as a thriller

The Matrix as a romance

Sleepless in Seattle as a horror movie

Misery as a love story

Mary Poppins as a horror movie

And my absolute favourite, The Shining as a romantic comedy

Thanks Karen. They do have lots there. I don't like the actual mashups though. Cutting other movies into a movie's trailer is cheating in my book. It is much more clever to recut from the original movie only.
