Re-cut Trailers

For this installment of General Web Content, our monthly series spotlighting cultural developments on the web, we visit one sub-genre of the mashup, the re-cut trailer. These short clips spoof the original storyline of the film, thus Sleepless In Seattle becomes a horror movie in which Meg Ryan comes to Seattle to terrorize Tom Hanks and his son, and The Ring becomes a romantic drama. These videos started bubbling up in a big way after The Shining re-cut trailer hit in 2005, and as a result of easy access to video editing suites, there are tons of 'em all over the web. See below for a few choice selections, please post your favorites in the comments section.

I think the first video is interestingly cut and liked the way it was edited.
