The Shining in 30 seconds, re-enacted by bunnies.

That was good even without a soundcard. I wonder what'll be next in the "X in 30 seconds, re-enacted by bunnies" meme. I think it should be Debbie Does Dallas. So obvious it's almost painful.

See also The Exorcist

Absolutely brilliant, but how dare they omit the cock-happy furrie?

So excellent.

I love the frozen bit at the end... and the humming...

Excellent.

It sounded like Alvin, Simon, and Theodore did the vocals

Is it considered a meme if there are only two, including this one, and both are made by the same people?

I'd like to see this done in that style

What we need is Schindler's List by the bunnies.

Am I the only one who thinks this wasn't even half as good as the Exorcist?

RoboJohny: Nope.

The next one has to be The Omen to finish up the 1970's possessed-child horror genre trifecta.

I actually prefer this one to the original Kubrick,

I'd like to see the bunnies do Dog Day Afternoon or French Connection in 30 seconds.

I hope these flicks get adapted as well:

Carnival of Souls
Children of the Damned
Red Dawn
The Hitcher
Lifeboat
Mondo Cane
Once Upon a Time in the West
("...I shot Mr. Choo-Choo")
They Live (in 7 minutes, 30 seconds, with the fight scene in real time)

Where's the "all work and no play" (alternatively, "no TV and no beer make homer something something") line?

I'd like to see Gone In 60 Seconds in 30 seconds.

I'd like to see Gone In 60 Seconds in 30 seconds.

...which is still about 11 seconds more than the actual plot of the movie will bear.

How about Pink Flamingos with bunnies, in thirty seconds? That'd be cool.

PrinceValium: "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy"?
That's what evil whoozit types on the typewriter. Even though we don't get to see or hear the line, we do at least see, implicitly, the evil whoozit bunny typing it.

This made no sense, sorry.

Another Kubric classic, in one minute.

Nice link, Wetspot. They truly captured the spirit of the movie, exactly how I understood it.

Plenty of other gems on that site. I just went through Amy's (third grade) Diary. The November 2 entry is classic.

Jaws... it has the catchy music cue to be hummed.

Holy crap. That's hilarious.

It's not bad (it also has the advantage of being short), but it's not as good as this one. I wasn't aware of the homicidal bunnies, though. Thanks mr_crash.
