    I've seen all of their Twilight riffs. They are HILARIOUS. I hate the movies, but the Rifftrax/MST3K guys make the movies enjoyable.

    I wish people would just let those movies die instead of keeping them alive with rifftracks and general hatred.

    Next Sunday A.D. won't be here fast enough!

    Also, wow. They've already doubled their original asking price. Holy shit, this is amazing.

    That's the whole idea. These movies will die yes, but they might as well be made fun of, like Transformers 2, a riff well-deserved. You never grew up with MST3K, did you?

    Here's a quote from their "Worst Movies of 2012" post...


    It's just beginning, my friend.

    Spiderman is a huge ongoing comic series, Twilight is a 4 book series. Rifftracks, while possibily funny at a time, I have grown bored of them. Perhaps my group of friends are simply more entertaining than something i can download.

    Red Dawn was a single (bad) movie without a book or TV series. Think that stopped them from remaking it? Noooo.... Now there are two bad movies.

    There's always that possibility that we'll see Twilight remakes, terrifying as the thought may be.

    "You thought you knew the true story of Bella and Edward. YOU WERE WRONG!"

    Um... Well... Good for you?

    Twilight is more of a fad than anything else. It's not something that people see the potential in reviving.

    Movies like Red Dawn get remade because they're single movies (so you don't have to worry about remaking the whole franchise) with an adaptable story. Like you see reboots and remakes or Red Dawn, Judge Dredd, etc but you don't see many remakes/reboots of trilogies or "fad" movies.

    By the time they'd get remade the fanbase would already not care too much.

    You might see a 3D version in a couple of years or a re-release but the franchise is just kinda out of steam.

    Let's hope you are right. The world can't take another Twilight in its pure, unadulterated form.

    ----

    The Kickstarter campaign is up to $184k.
