Amazing Editing in 'Scary Mary'

I'm obviously an advocate for unique editing styles and projects, and although I'd known about this video for some time I realized that I hadn't shared it here. You've seen Mary Poppins before haven't you? Well you at least know the basic story; Britsh nanny comes in and helps the children with some music, cheer and whimsy. Now look at how brilliant this video is.

It's the original film and audio from the Disney classic Mary Poppins edited into a horror movie trailer. I have to say, this isn't just a parody, this is a pretty damn convincing horror flick promo which just goes to show how the decisions you make as an editor can turn raw footage into almost anything you want. Mary Poppins is kind of freaky huh?

I'm scared of Mary Poppins as it is. She defies physics! Continuously!

Wow and to think I was going to watch that with my babies this weekend. No wonder I am afraid of everything.

Yeah, this one's a classic, isn't it? I've also seen one about 'The Shining' that they've changed into a bright and bouncy family comedy!

I loves me some trailer remixes! The Shining as a romantic comedy is the original and best, but this one is brilliant too. I also really like the Benny Hill version of Passion of the Christ.

That is seriously disturbing, very clever editing, It just goes to show how much something that was caught on camera can be changed with clever editing.
