Spoofs

The wide wonderful world of film lends itself splendidly to the 'spoof' or parody as most genres have conventions and unwritten rules that are very easy to twist and undermine. It's all about messing with audience expectation - and nobody is safe - from TV cops ('Police Squad') to zombies ('Shaun of the Dead'); disaster flicks ('Airplane') to westerns ('Blazing Saddles'); Alfred Hitchcock ('High Anxiety') to Arnold Schwarzenegger ('Last Action Hero'). Sit back and have a laugh, at someone else's expense.
