I disagree. This just isn't that funny. It's well-put-together, but far from making me laugh, it hardly made me crack a smile. The crying boy at the end with the masturbating father was just not at all funny whatsoever, the characterisation is all wrong and the scenes - especially the first dungeon room with the letters on the floor - are far too long. The script is also too messy and, while it's a clear parody, it just doesn't exactly seem too deifned about where it's going or what it's trying to do.

Bad Dreem is still the best Knightmare parody by far. Sorry, but in my opinion this just doesn't cut the mustard.

Another new Knightmare parody has recently surfaced. This one looks like it's going to be released in gradual stages:

Oh yeah I remember seeing that first parody some time ago and I have to agree with Pooka, it was just bad ???

(Okay, I said I loved the video in the comments, but that was just me not watching the video the whole way through *facepalm*)

This new one I like in a way. It doesn't best Bad Dreem, but it's still good :D

Have just watched all the parodies and have to say I enjoyed Bad Dreem the most! But I still enjoyed the new one and hope more will be made!

I thought this new one was very well done. Cracked up at the advisors introducing themselves, just like the real thing with missed cues and general awkwardness. ;D And the classic "walking towards the camera" shot taken to its logical conclusion, haha! Also loved the attention to detail with props etc. My favourite parody so far, I think.

This emulated the tone of the earlier series with an accuracy that bordered on the terrifying.

Also, I lol'd.

I assume you're talking about this? My girlfriend linked me to it just now.

Yeah, it's funny. Treguard is very well-realised too. I still prefer Bad Dreem, but did laugh out loud at this.

Make that 12000 views, approaching 13... and is that the ACTUAL Tim Child who's left a comment?!

Might be Tim, although it's from an account that was set up only yesterday, and is only subscribed to Owyn & Co's channel. (Why has he not subbed to Mark Knight's - https://www.youtube.com/user/markbknight - for instance?) I tend to be skeptical of those, and given Tim has more or less disappeared from view completely over the last four years, it kind of goes against the grain that he'd suddenly re-appear just to comment on a YouTube vid.

On the other hand, it sounds like the sort of comment he would genuinely leave, and he might have come across the parody via the Guardian like many people have (maybe not a regular YouTube visitor). It's impossible to verify, but I'm inclined to believe it's him... would someone bother setting up a fake account just to say that?
