Horror chicks Michelle Tomlinson and Kimberly Amato are back with the second episode of their entertaining webseries, the first issue of the filmmaking orgy I wrote about HERE. Displaying a keen marketing savvy, McT & A have delivered a loving parody of the whole Twilight phenomenon, written by Amato, just in time for tomorrow’s release of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.
This episode, dubbed The Mis-Adventures of McT & A: The Twilight Spoof, takes a different approach than the first, which was totally improvised. Amato and Tomlinson portray two überfans of a Twilight-like series of movies. They apparently spend all their free time arguing the relative merits of Edward and Jacob…I mean, Josh and Landall, the Edward and Jacob analogues they worship. Their ongoing discussion is illustrated with tongue-in-cheek “dramatizations” that make their various points and lampoon the overblown acting endemic to the series being spoofed. McT & A are aided and abetted in their efforts by Joshua Benton and Landall Goolsby, playing…umm, Josh and Landall. Also on board is a hilarious Lisa Gershuny as the very over-the-top Bella counterpart.
So, if you think hunky werewolves and sparkly vampires are getting just a little too big for their teen idol britches, or even if you just love all things Twilight, watch the episode below or head on over to YouTube and check out The Mis-Adventures of McT & A: The Twilight Spoof. It might be just the thing to get you in the mood for the continuing mis-adventures of the Cullen clan. And I promise, Edward won’t mind if you laugh…just a little.
