ELF: The Suspense Thriller Trailer
I love mash-ups & re-cuts. The weirder the better. One of my all time favorites has got to be the mash-up trailer that mixed "Must love Dogs" & "Jaws" creating the trailer for "Must Love Jaws". Or perhaps re-cutting the Stephen King classic "The Shinning" into a fun family friendly rom-com film.
From the "If I have not seen it, it's new to me" file, someone took one of our new favorite Christmas classics and gave it a twist! Thanks to the folks at CineFix, we get to see Will Ferrell's ELF, re-imagined as a thriller horror film about a boy who was kidnapped as an infant, tortured, and traveled great lengths just to find his family, and becomes obsessed when they do not reciprocate his love. Check out the re-cut trailer for Elf: The Thriller.
Now if you're new to the "Holiday Horror" aspect of film, don't worry. There are plenty of films that fills you with holiday cheer and dread just as much as Christmas dinner with the in-laws! Such films as "Black Christmas", "Silent Night, Bloody Night", "The Lodge", "Better Watch Out" or "The Advent Calendar".
For the most part, these films are serious. Horror films that take place at Christmas time. A majority of this genera of films are Horror / Comedy. My all time favorite, is a little film called "Santa's Slay", starring professional wrestler Bill Goldberg as Santa. Other great Holiday Horror Comedy (which the above fake trailer, I'm sure would fall into that category) are such films as "Krampus", "The Ginderdead Man", & "Anna & the Apocalypse".
