I’m not sure what compelled the YouTuber known as “The Unusual Suspect” to commit what probably amounted to a few weeks’ worth of personal time, hand-picking clips from 183 movies and cutting the dialogue to Linkin Park’s 2001 hit single “In the End.” Maybe he just really, really loves the song. I’m not judging or anything.
But one thing that does come across is this dude’s enthusiasm for movies… many of which are genre classics that we all know and love. We’re talking STAR WARS, SAW, JURASSIC PARK, PREDATOR, BLADE RUNNER, JAWS, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, TERMINATOR 2, HIGHLANDER, ARMY OF DARKNESS, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, AMERICAN PSYCHO, HARRY POTTER, THE AVENGERS, THE MATRIX, CHILD’S PLAY, THOR, BACK TO THE FUTURE, SPACEBALLS, LORD OF THE RINGS, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, STAR TREK, BLADE, BRAM STOKER’S DRACULA, PITCH BLACK, THEY LIVE, THE FIFTH ELEMENT… all of them rapid-fire cut to a song that clocks in at a little over three minutes. Many of the characters shown only deliver one word apiece.
Regardless of your views on the song itself, you gotta give the guy props for his editing skills. Check it out below and see if you can spot your favorite flicks — you may have to work those pause and rewind buttons though!
