I love crazy film theories, and try to from time to time, share them on the site. Let me first say, crazy film theories don’t have the be the hidden intention of the creator (be it screenwriter, director…etc), and might just be an alternative interpretation of the events. Actually, most times, it is nothing more than a creative interpretation. I always enjoy looking at films with a completely different interpretation, even when it is entirely invented.

That said, you should not read any further unless you have seen Toy Story 3, as it won’t make much sense if you don’t understand the story/plot references, and it will probably spoil important plot points from the film.

So if you’ve seen the movie, and are not afraid to consider a wacky film theory about how Toy Story 3 is really a story about the Holocaust, continue after the jump.

An Uncanny Similarity Between Mad Men and The Office

When the season finale of Mad Men was over, there was a minor tinge of déjà vu that I couldn’t immediately pin down. Hours later, it occurred to me that one of the major twists in the finale shared several fun similarities to The Office (Scranton Branch). In fact, up until the epiphany, I had never considered Don Draper to be every bit the serious, hip and fair boss that Michael Scott is delighted to find in the mirror each morning when he combs back his hair. As is /Film’s reader friendly policy, spoilers ahead

Drag Me To Hell

Readers of /Film know that I’m a fan of wacky movie theories that make you reevaluate a film in much different light. Sometimes the theories are intended creations of the writer/director behind a film, but most times they are just fun interpretations created by the viewer (like this one). Either way, I always find them interesting and entertaining. Before you read this theory, take a deep breath — no one is saying that Raimi intended this interpretation — it’s meant to be fun.

/Film reader Steve M sent over an interesting theory he read over on IMDB. Micobiella thinks that Sam Raimi‘s Drag Me To Hell isn’t actually a horror movie, but instead a story of a farm girl with an eating disorder, who starves herself to fit a certain image and begins hallucinating and going crazy. Apparently you can watch the entire movie from this viewpoint, with few exceptions, and it all makes sens. Read the theory after the jump. Warning: Spoilers follow.
