Peter Parker’s relationship with Mary Jane goes through some ups and downs in Sam Raimi’s original Spider-Man trilogy — but make a few editing tweaks and Pete turns into a straight-up psycho.

A fan recut footage from the original Spider-Man films to turn Tobey Maguire’s Peter Parker into a stalker, and it actually works waaaaay better than it ever should. Gone is the fun, coming-of-age story of a young hero finding his way (and a bit of love in the process). Instead, Peter is basically terrorizing young Mary Jane and making her life a living hell. It’s a bit choppy, but still pretty great.

Check out the trailer below, and marvel at the difference a bit of clever cuts, and music tweaks, can make to a modern classic:
