Internet Meme Hall of Fame: Recut Movie Trailers

Taxi Driver as a rom-com, Mrs. Doubtfire as horror, and other reimagined classics.

Shining: A romantic comedy

The heartfelt tale of a failed writer (Jack) who adopts a smiling foster child, this is the recut movie trailer that started it all, way back in 2005. It’s very well-done, but in the end, no number of father-son hug clips set to Peter Gabriel songs can shake the terrifying out of this movie.

I've never seen Taxi Driver, and it's now hard for me not to imagine it as a roco.

Great list. But how could you leave off '10 Things I Hate About Commandments'

This is great! Mrs. Doubtfire, The Shining, and Taxi Driver are AMAZING!

I think that picture of Robin Williams is terrifying

Hahaha. Mrs. Doubtfire is awesome. Even her name is kind of horror-esque. One might believe it if they hadn't seen the movie.

There's also a really good one on Youtube that does "The Wicker Man" as a comedy.
