Via Cinematical:  Way back before this site went on its unfortunate hiatus, I linked to a trailer for a “movie” called Shining — which was simply bits of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining re-edited so that it looked like a sweet family comedy-drama rather than the nightmare-inducing-in-impressionable-eleven-year-olds horror flick it really is. [1]

Somewhat unsurprisingly, that little project kicked off a slew of similar videos which are all over the YouTubes, reimagining classic and not-so-class movies in new ways.   URLesque has compiled ten of the best and put them all together for your viewing convenience.  I haven’t gotten to watch all of them yet, but I can tell you that the horror-fied take on When Harry Met Sally was pure brilliance.  Go check ‘em out and tell ‘em Moviegeekz sent ya.

[1] Why, no, of course I’m not talking about my eleven-year-old self there!  Why would you possibly imagine I’d be terrified by the sight of Scatman Crothers graphically taking an axe to the chest?
