A Different Take

I was wondering–on a basic level–what makes horror (be it movies, stories, or anything else) scary? Is it about the content or the way it’s presented? I happen to think that the presentation is more important. Here to support my claim, I have a very special clip. It’s a re-edited trailer for Mary Poppins called “Scary Mary,” which was made by Chris Rule and Nick Eckert. Once you see this, you may never look at this movie the same way again.

Same story as the original, just with a different take on the presentation, and this is what we get. I wonder, what other benign things could become chilling, given the proper modifications?
