Twitter users make horror movies less scary — and are hilarious

If horror movies are something you just can’t stomach, perhaps the Twittersphere can calm your nerves.

#MakeAHorrorFilmLessScary started trending Tuesday and it’s just the diversion we needed in this scary month.

It’s an easy game to play, and the results are just wonderful.

Case in point:

That’s the idea. Just change a word or two, and the whole idea of “fright” goes out the window.

The wormhole just goes on and on and on.

Even the George Romero classic “Night of the Living Dead” gets the treatment.

While several of the tweets ventured into political commentary, the best ones stuck to the idea of turning something horrifying into something silly.

Ah, we see what you did there. Well played.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
