This Labyrinth Honest Trailer Will Have You in Stitches

Get it? Stitches?! Haaa.

In memory of David Bowie and his recent passing, Screen Junkies went ahead and made an Honest Trailer for Labyrinth, that cult classic film packed with freaky muppets, Jennifer Connelly, and the Thin White Duke himself.

The entire honest trailer had me in stitches (pun very intended) from beginning to end, and perfectly treads the line of irreverence—I mean, you can’t really add That One Clip of Connelly from Requiem for a Dream to a parody trailer for a kid’s movie and not think that you’re pushing a boundary somewhere. But that’s okay! It’s totally okay cause it works and it’s just brief enough that you really need to have seen it to get the reference.

I mean really. Anyway.

You should check out the trailer, if only for the customary parody cast names at the end. Oh, and the alternate movie title had me dying.
