Just for Halloween, Mashable’s Trailer Mix feature, which spoofs famous movie trailers, has included “The Goonies,” proclaiming their version of the trailer for the 1985 movie “recut as a thriller, will keep you up at night.” Of course, the Ear was intrigued, and watched. You can, too, at http://tinyurl.com/goonmash. A screen shot of “Chunk” is shown.
Loud, ominous music, flashing titles (“How far would you go to save your family?) and deftly clever editing make the original movie unrecognizable. It’s a hoot. And scary.
