What if Real Genius was an M. Night Shyamalan thriller?

We haven't seen too many great re-cut trailers lately—perhaps the standard set by turning The Shining into a comedy was just too high. But this new trailer for the 1985 classic Real Genius, which presents it as a thriller directed by M. Night Shyamalan, is pretty, umm, genius. The best moment is Val Kilmer's sarcastic face (at about 1:30) that's reinterpreted as grief-stricken. (Also, there's never enough Lazlo Hollyfeld in the world.) Stick around for the laser-assisted climax. [h/t to BoingBoing]
