If you seriously haven’t watched Fight Club yet (or read the book by Chuck Palahniuk) stop and go do that right now. You’re fifteen years late to the craziest party. Okay, you’ve watched it now? Onwards.
A visual effects specialist in New York accelerated himself to Internet fame in mid-January when he edited Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) out of a 50-second clip from Fight Club. In a juicy twist at the end of the film, the audience discovers Tyler Durden is an insane creation of The Narrator’s (Edward Norton) imagination. Dedicated fans have rewatched the film imagining it without Durden’s character, but now, thanks to Richard Trammell, we have the chance to see what that would really be like.
Not wanting to rest on his 50-seconds of Internet fame, Trammell took his talents to another classic piece of cinema, Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. In the scene where Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) meets the imagined Delbert Grady (Philip Stone), the previous caretaker of the Overlook Hotel, Trammell removed Grady’s body, leaving only his voice and a deranged looking Jack.
To keep Trammell in business (and in the spotlight) we recommend he tackles Frank from Donnie Darko (2001). Ivan from The Machinist (2004), Charlie from A Beautiful Mind (2001), and Harvey from Harvey (1950).
Hope that didn’t ruin too many movies.
