747 to Hell in ’76 (1977)

posted by on August 8 at 15:59 PM

The Parallel Universe Film Guide is at once incredibly funny and dizzying in its depth and scope.

There are film titles, descriptions, quotes and trivia about hundreds of movies that don’t exist, set up in a Wikipedia-style format. Most impressively, you can follow the fictional careers of the fictional actors and directors who made these fictional movies. Scott Salomon, for instance, directed three films in the late eighties/early nineties, including Commander in Chief…of Love.

Here’s a list of movie titles randomly pulled from the Ns. Each of these titles links to a full movie page.

Nazis, Schmazis (1961)

Need Faded Actresses for Gothic Hijinks (1962)

Needle Dick (1932)

Needle Dick, You Motherfucking Fuck (1983)

Negro ‘n’ Nuns…Awww (1963)

Neurotic Sisters a’ Plenty (1986)

News at Six, Ethical Dilemma at Eleven (1987) (updated!)

New York Gritty (1971)

Next of Mannequin (1929)

And further down the list are my favorites:

Nobody Doesn’t Like ESP (1976)

No Ifs, Ands, or Robots (1973)

No Legs, No Problem (1950)

I can already tell that I’m going to spend hours on this fucking website.

Are these all spoofs of actual movies? The one titled "Gay Father, Straight Son? Vive Le Mix-Up!" is obviously making fun of La Cage aux Folles...

Pretty funny, though.

It's true, nobody doesn't like ESP...

@2: Some are definitely making fun, but others are more ingeniously weird than all that.

Abby, I somehow knew you were going to say that.

Damn You Paul--I also forsee hours upon hours on this site.

I am just making my way through the A's and dying.

For example, from "Adopt This, Bitch" (1981)

Please don't tell me they forgot to mention my own personal all-time favorite documentary--or, "rockumentary," if you will--about the Seattle music scene in the late 2000's, namely, "Arms Made Of Legs, Or: Kicked In And/Or By The Shins."

Say it isn't so, Paul!
