QuickClick: Fan-Made Trailer for Real Genius as Directed by M. Night Shyamalan
03.02.13 by Ryan
For those missed it, 1985's Real Genius was one the decade's better comedies, bolstered by a performance from Val Kilmer, who was making only his second big screen performance after 1984's Top Secret! The movie was directed by Martha Coolidge, who directed another 80s favorite with 1983's Valley Girl and went on to direct TV shows like Sex & The City and Weeds.
But what if Real Genius had been made by The Sixth Sense director M. Night Shyamalan? That's exactly what a recent fan-made trailer proposes, turning the comedy about genius college students at a technical university and creating a moodier trailer befitting of a Shyamalan thriller.
