Psycho Spoof Beast #3

To begin, posters, and no 'fandom'.

Gutterballs does Halloween and Maniac.



 The Tripper vs Saw


Stalled vs World War Z


Tagline of Christian James' funny zomcom "When there's no bathroom in hell, the dead will walk the earth" cleverly references George Romero's satirical 1978 undead classic Dawn of the Dead.

Lisa's Substitute (The Simpsons) does a sterling job of reffing The Graduate.


But wait an amazing minute.

Take a gander at Naomi (Margot Robbie) teasing Jordan (Leonardo DiCaprio) in Martin Scorsese epic The Wolf of Wall Street.


Was shot based on and/or stole from the above?

The only material difference is legs are spread.

Hmmm...

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2* vs The Breakfast Club


*Film is actually called The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2.

Anyway, 2008 documentary film American Teen did the same thing.


The Fun House vs The Rocky Horror Picture Show*


*Lorelei Shark's ruby lips of course parody a different set of Jaws.

Saving Star Wars vs Saving Private Ryan


Spy vs Lethal Weapon 3


Unfortunately, Howard the Duck was made.

I know, the world's a sick fucking place.

Scraping the bottom of a very despicable barrel.

Breeders of the Lost Stork vs Raiders of the Lost Ark


My Name Is Bruce can kiss my ass, but The Stoogitive brought a smile to disappointed face.


Argentine revolutionary Che Guevara becomes a zombie for Juan of the Dead.


Less famous beret, persona of Galactic President is assumed for Contra: ReBirth.
Nick Webber (Craig Robinson) gives two famous albums a makeover in odious sequel Hot Tub Time Machine 2.

Sharp Little Object vs Jagged Little Pill


Forget It vs Nevermind


One more.

Danzig (Skeletons) vs David Bowie (Pin Ups)


Former porn actress Kayden Kross and supermodel Twiggy appear on respective albums.

Debuting in Galaxy Fight: Universal Warriors (and also Waku Waku 7), Bonus Kun makes fun of Ryu.


Check out what bargain bin has to offer in Space Quest IV: Roger Wilco and the Time Rippers.

Boom vs Loom*


*Whilst engaged in conversation with a pirate in The Secret of Monkey Island, dialogue options encourage Guy to ask about Loom in the SCUMM Bar.

It Came for Dessert vs It Came from the Desert


Note in description that Enemaware's fakery mentions Defender of the Crown Rib Toast, referencing Cinemaware's strategy classic Defender of the Crown.

Fancy a bit of Leonardo da Vinci?

Course yer' do.

The Last Supper

American Horror Story: Coven (The Seven Wonders)
Battlestar Galactica (promoting The Final Season)
South Park (Margaritaville)
That '70s Show (Streaking)
The Expendables 2
Vitruvian Man

The Scientific Secrets of Doctor Who, The Official Zombie Handbook (UK) and Idiocracy


Celebrity Juice T'Box Set and poster for Madea's Family Reunion are stylised on Andy Warhol pop art.


GPK Abstract Abby is a mash up of Pablo Picasso
From now on, it's film all the way.

Space Quest 6: Roger Wilco in The Spinal Frontier was the final game in the series and as subtitle suggests, was basically a Star Trek parody.

One question, why did Sierra abandon roman numerals?

Romancing the Throne and The Princeless Bride sub King's Quest II and VII respectively.

Each are obvious plays on Romancing the Stone and The Princess Bride.

Don Siegel first adapted Jack Finney's novel The Body Snatchers as Invasion of the Body Snatchers in 1956.

It would be remade in 1993 as Body Snatchers and strangely, once again in 2007 as The Invasion.

However, it was Philip Kaufman's 1978 remake that lives long in my memory.

Why? Donald Sutherland screams the answer.


Truly disturbing.

Paperazi vents anger towards episode's title character Britney's New Look (South Park).
Judy points at Roy in post-credits scene of The Haunting of Bill Crouse (The IT Crowd).
Medieval knight (Max von Sydow) plays a game of chess with Bengt Ekerot's personification of Death in seminal 1957 classic The Seventh Seal.
Film and television rings the loudest of bells.

Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey
Nasty (The Young Ones)
King Kong and Godzilla star in the impressive 1996 big screen outing Beavis and Butt-Head Do America.


Whose fucking idea was it to have the beginning of Part VI: Jason Lives spoof James Bond?


Beyond ridiculous.

Aliens runs a final bypass.

Space Quest V: Roger Wilco - The Next Mutation
Our hero meets Spike, a facehugger who leaves trails of acid behind. 
Earthworm Jim's antagonist Queen-Slug-For-A-Butt is video game royalty.



Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse was gut-wrenching to play, but most stages were fun, especially Chickens in Space.

Predictably, Giant Chicken Queen poses boss challenge.


Until next time.
