This Funny or Die fake trailer for a movie called Gobstopper premiered at SXSW earlier this week without anyone being told it was a joke. Essentially a cross between Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Saw, it features a demented Willy Wonka (Christopher Lloyd) terrorizing a group of teens that come to visit his Chocolate Factory. Here’s the website for the fake film.
Is it as funny and/or outrageous as the “giving head” scene in Reanimator (which is what it reminds you of right away)? Uhhm, no. The stand-out visual element is Lloyd’s yellow teeth. Were they yellowed for the trailer, or are they naturally that way? A tiny bit icky either way.
The four leads are played by Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights), Paul Rust (I Love You, Beth Cooper), Martha Maclsaac (Superbad), and Nicky Whelan. Paul Sheer (Human Giant) and Wee Man (Jackass) also appear.
