Back in 1992, me and my buddy Owen and I entertained ideas of becoming filmmakers by doing shot-for-shot remakes of Reservoir Dogs. Of course, we had no money or decent gear, so our productions were more like one-act plays with ridiculous costumes and props. I know I’m not the only one who imitated his mentors in this manner, and a zero-budget remake of the trailer for Andrés Muschietti’s IT brought me back to those thrilling days of yesteryear.
The shot-for-shot remake comes courtesy of the comedy troop Terrible 20’s, who created 2 versions: One is a straight up recreation and the second includes the original trailer in a box, so you can follow along. Both are hysterical in their own right, and each is an absolute joy to behold. Have a watch and let us know what you think in the Comments section!
