Scary Mary?

tags: , , , , , , ,

This recut of the original Disney film, Mary Poppins by Chris Rule and Nick Eckert, raises an interesting question about the film goer’s perspective and how a scary film is set up differently from one that is not scary.

This contains the musical piece “A Violent Attack” composed by Caine Davidson for the film ‘An American Haunting,’ “Stay Awake” written by Richard and Robert Sherman for Disney’s ‘Mary Poppins,’ and stock sounds from iMovie. Clips filmed with a Penasonic MiniDV camera and edited on iMovie.

    There’s also this example of the reverse – Shining –

    Mary Poppins is my favourite movie, and now its ruined! 🙂

    That was really good. Very clever. That Shining example from Gary is also good.
