These Dumb and Dumber To posters parody Lucy

Although I've never seen Lucy (as I still regret seeing Hercules over it), I've heard lots of good things and it's apparently popular enough to warrant a parody. Specifically, a parody of the "use 10% of the brain" premise.&n...

First trailer for Intramural, a sports parody featuring SNL cast members

I'm not the biggest fan of sports movies as they all tend to look the same. But every once in a while, something new comes along and manages to rock the sports genre with its uniqueness. Intramural might make it close to tha...

The Simpsons pay tribute to Studio Ghibli films

This Sunday on The Simpsons, Comic Book Buy is getting married in "Married to the Blob." Sure, Comic Book Guy (or Jeffrey Albertson) has been in romantic relationships before, but now that he's apparently romancing a manga a...

Rogen and Franco recreated Kanye West's "Bound 2"

On the set of Seth Rogen's directorial follow up to This is the End, The Interview (featuring Rogen and James Franco as a TV personality and producer who are roped into helping assassinate the prime minister of North Korea), James Franco and Seth Rogen did a shot for shot remake of Kanye West's weird music video for "Bound 2." Ye...yeah it's pretty sexy.  [via Twitter]

First trailer for Best Night Ever is not the best ever

Best Night Ever seeks to parody the likes of party films such as Spring Breakers and every bacholerette party movie ever. What Best Night Ever fails to do, however, is make any of it funny. Although it's most likely too earl...

SNL's Wes Anderson parody is pure brilliance

The only thing wrong with this brilliant Wes Anderson parody is its lack of Bill Murray. Other than that, it looks exactly like an Anderson film. The music is perfect, the shots are perfect, Edward Norton's Owen Wilson is perfect...ahhhh, it's perfect! [via YouTube]

So I would totally be down for a full-length parody of American Psycho starring Huey Lewis of Huey Lewis and the News and Weird Al Yankovic, but that may be just me personally. Regardless, Funny or Die released a video that i...

Flix for Short: SNL's Djesus Uncrossed photo
Flix for Short: SNL's Djesus Uncrossed
by Hubert Vigilla

Over the weekend, Saturday Night Live did a great parody of Django Unchained and Quentin Tarantino movies in general. Behold Djesus Uncrossed, with Christoph Waltz as the Man (with No Name) of Galilee. I'm not going to give away any of the gags, so just watch the mayhem in the video above already.

Though Tarantino is already making retirement plans, he would like to do a third movie featuring rewritten history. He hasn't yet decided what the capper would be to Inglorious Basterds and Django Unchained, however.

And on a sidenote related to Quentin Tarantino, people in NYC can see a weekend-long Pam Grier film retrospective from March 15-17. Grier herself will be in attendance at screenings of Jackie Brown, Coffy, and The Big Bird Cage, and will also have a discussion about her badass career.

The Cult Club: Blood Feast 2: All U Can Eat (2002) photo
The Cult Club: Blood Feast 2: All U Can Eat (2002)
by Alec Kubas-Meyer

[The Cult Club is where Flixist's writers expound the virtues of their favourite underground classics, spanning all nations and genres. It is a monthly series of articles looking at what made those films stand out from the pack, as well as their enduring legacy.]

Last November, the Cult Club featured Herschell Gordon Lewis's Blood Trilogy, a series of films that have been historically bound together not because of any connection between the films, but because they started a revolution in horror cinema. Thanks to 1963's Blood Feast, 1964's 2000 Maniacs, and 1965's Color Me Blood Red, blood is no longer enough. Now it's all about the gore. In 1972, 9 years after the release of Blood Feast, H. G. Lewis stopped making films. His final film, The Gore Gore Girls, is a fascinating film in its own right, and I recommend that for any fans of gory films. 

But as the turn of the century neared, rumors abounded that H. G. Lewis would return to helm a sequel to Blood Feast, and then the rumors became a beautiful, beautiful reality. In 2002, H. G. Lewis released Blood Feast 2: All U Can Eat. Because it predates the digital revolution, it was much rarer for a filmmaker to set out with the intention of creating a film that is "so bad it's good."

But if anyone's going to do it, it may as well be a man whose repertoire is made almost exclusively of those kinds of films, don't you think? Of course you do. The images found below, by the way, are not safe for work. Consider yourself warned.

Batman Maybe

This is brilliant. I usually hate popular song parodies, but this... This isn't the Carlie Rae Jepsen parody we need, this is the Carlie Rae Jepsen parody we deserve. Oh, and, uh, SPOILERS for the three of you who still haven't seen The Dark Knight Rises. [Via Youtube]
