Here’s something to get you there. Some scary trailers for some very scary films.
This one features something rarely seen in trailers today. Original material shot specifically for the trailer. The egg. An image also used in poster. An image that is metaphor for the movie. Classy stuff. You can tell Ridley Scott began his career in advertising.
Who says you need tons of edits to scare people? Kubrick does it with one shot, and some music. A lesson to filmmakers of today.
Can anyone spot the one line in this trailer that isn’t in the movie?
Still considered the scariest movie all time by most horror movie fans. And the trailer ain’t bad either. And it was based on a very scary book.
Hmmm … a very scary book made into a very scary movie. Maybe I should … no … you’ll hear more about that soon.
If you have any favorite scary trailers, talk about them in the comments section, and we’ll try to post ‘em.
