Real Genius by M. Night Shyamalan: Trailer Recut

Real Genius - Imp Awards
I have no problem declaring my love for the 80s comedy Real Genius, I watched it on VHS over and over and over. I wanted to be as smart as Val Kilmer’s Chris Knight and I’m totally okay with admitting I had a wicked crush on Jordan (Michelle Meyrink).

The Real Genius trailer that in an alternate universe was made by M. Night Shyamalan is an even better movie.

  1. Real Genius is in my top 5 favorite movies of all time. I have to say this trailer remix is pretty awesome. It’s amazing what a little creative editing can do to a story line.
