Portmanteau movies

A few more of the Shockwave bits read/performed at Applecon. These are Portmanteau Movies, a term I made up to describe the title of a movie that comprises two (or more) other movie titles. I started a list circa 1991 and keep adding to it and editing it for spelling and more recent movies. Some were used on Shockwave Radio, and some I was hesitant to read out loud... but some people liked them. You know who you are. Here is a small sample of some of my favorites. You are encouraged to come up with your own.
