I once ran a couple of film blogs and had a weekly recurring series called Trailer Trash. It comprised of film clips from my favorite movies recut into completely different genres! For example, the whimsical and delightful Disney classic Mary Poppins was recut into a horror movie!
Here is a list of some of my favorite “Trailer Trash” recuts done on YouTube.
500 Days Of Summer
JGL and Zooey Deschanel star in a thriller about obsession and lost dreams. Is this Fatal Attraction meets Inception? Or just another piece of trailer trash?
10 Things I Hate About Commandments
Remember the classic Cecil B. Demille film The Ten Commandments? Well there’s a trailer recut for it! This is by far the funniest trailer I’ve seen yet…and don’t worry, God has a sense of humor. Check it out!
The Usual Suspects: A Love Story
Here’s another recut trailer cut to be a homoerotic romance. This time it’s between Verbal and Keaton. Check it out…and apparently its directed by Tom Hanks.
The film Rain Man recut into a thriller…starring “Scientlogist” Tom Cruise! That part of the trailer had me in hysterics. Hahaaha!
Brokeback To The Future
This is a trailer clip that you’ve probably already seen. It’s basically the fist clip that started Trailer Trash for us! It’s Brokeback To The Future! The classic comedy Back To The Future recut with a Brokeback Mountain love motiff.
