80s Comedy Movie Trailers Recut as Dramas and Horror Movies


Ever since I saw the Mary Poppins horror trailer a number of years ago, I’ve always been on the lookout for awesome re-cut trailers. While I’m not sure any will match that one, or the comedy one for The Shining, there have been some great mashups out there. You gotta love when Brokeback Mountain came out and there were dozens of Brokeback re-cuts.

And for some reason I’ve been in an 80s comedy movie kind of mood lately. With that said I thought I’d poke around Youtube to see if there were any comedy trailers turned non-comedy that would be worth sharing. Turns out there were 10. Most of them are horror with a couple of action thrown in. I hope you enjoy.

P.S. I think The Christmas Story and Pee Wee’s Big Adventure trailers are amazing.

Better off Dead

This couldn’t be any more perfect. Anyone who’s seen this movie knows that the horror angle is perfect.


I was kind of sold at the very beginning. Plus Rodney is a scary guy when you think about it.

Uncle Buck

Let’s face it, even though it’s a comedy, Uncle Buck was a little freaky.

Brokeback Ferris

You have to admit these two were a great pair!

Breakfast Club

I could easily see this as a horror movie now.

Airplane! Thriller

Eh, not sure I buy this one. Still though, this isn’t bad.

A Christmas Story – Ralphie’s Cut

Ralphie as a freak!

Pee Wee’s Big Adventure

I mean come on. Pee Wee freaks us all out no matter what.


Not sure what to think of this one.
