Classic Trailers: HALLOWEEN II (1981)

The art of the movie trailer seems to be somewhat lost these days. Sure, trailers for the upcoming MAD MAX: FURY ROAD and STAR WARS: EPISODE VII did a great job giving the entire internet the equivalent to a cinematic heart attack (and rightfully so, they’re great), but for the most part, trailers either give […]

Classic Trailers: CHILD’S PLAY (1988)!!

Chucky has become a household name for horror by now, but in 1988, when CHILD’S PLAY was released, crowds were scared, shocked and enthralled by a new horror villain, trapped inside the body of a doll. The trailer for that film is an equally intense one, that while getting silly at times (“There’s nothing fun […]

Classic Trailers: FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VIII: JASON TAKES MANHATTAN!!

Classic Trailers: HALLOWEEN 4: THE RETURN OF MICHAEL MYERS!!

We all know the stories of how many fans of the first two HALLOWEEN films weren’t all too excited about the lack of Michael Myers in HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH.

Classic Horror Trailers: A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (2010)

I know, I know..before you fright fiends sound off, crucifying me with “WHAT?! The A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET remake sucked, it’s not a classic!”, or anything similar to that, hear me out. You’re VERY right on both of those statements, but it’s not like I’m going to do a “Classic”, “Medium Classic” and “Downright […]
