A parody trailer, ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9VDvgL58h_Y The Horribly Slow Murderer With the Extremely Inefficient Weapon]]'' pokes fun at the horror genre, particularly the so-called "TorturePorn" movies like ''Franchise/{{Saw}}'' and ''Film/{{Hostel}}'' which focus on, well, see the title. It stars Paul Clemens as a man who is suddenly attacked by a supernatural being (Brian Rohan) for a (possibly imagined) slight against the Powers That Be. This attack is made with a normal spoon, the bowl struck sharply against the target's body, and is seldom ceased. The victim is sent spiraling past the brink of insanity from the constant flogging, and resorts to continually, and comedically, extreme lengths to get rid of his tormentor, all ending in failure, and in some cases even backfiring immensely.

* BilingualBonus: The victim in the story is Jack Cucchiaio. The murderer is called the Ginosaji. "Cucchiaio" and "Gin no saji" are Italian and Japanese, respectively, for "spoon" and "silver spoon". The seal that appears in the video repeatedly also says spoon as the english pronunciation (スプン, pronounced su-pu-n) in Japanese katakana. (It is not the native term for spoon though.)

* CerebusSyndrome: By Ginosaji vs. Ginosaji, Jack's situation is so pitiful that it's becoming hard to find it funny, culminating in him being dragged an indeterminate amount of miles by a bus (while still being hit with a spoon) and then suffocated (while still being hit with a spoon) to the point that he hallucinates about a "happy place," only to wake up in a full body cast[[RuleOfThree (while still being hit with a spoon.)]] He attempts to kill himself by jumping off a building.. which still fails. It's hard not to feel sorry for him, even though his plight is PlayedForLaughs.

* HumanoidAbomination: The Ginosaji, of course.



** Another scene that would qualify is that [[spoiler:when the Ginosaji's spoon finally breaks, he backs off for a moment, then ominously opens his hoodie to reveal that his shirt has a dozen more spoons hanging from it. WordOfGod confirms that the Ginosaji has an infinite number of spoons hanging from it.]]
