Monster Mash-Up


There is a culture of mash-ups spreading around the Internet, whereby two disparate items are mashed together to produce a unique new item. Examples include The Grey Album, which mashes the Beatles’ White Album with Jay-z’s Black Album. Another example is 10 Things I Hate About Commandments, which mashes The Ten Commandments with 10 Things I Hate About You.

Another aspect of mash-ups is to re-imagine a movie in a new light. Examples include Brokeback to the Future, which tells the story of Marty and Doc as gay lovers. Other popular trailers include The Shining as a romantic comedy, and Jaws as a buddy flick.

I had a few clever ideas for movie trailer mashups, and since I have neither the time nor the talent to bring them to reality, I thought I’d share them here. If you produce one of these, do please share it with me! Feel free also to share your own ideas in the comments.

What movie mash-ups can you suggest?
