There're threads on the boards about effective trailers, artistic trailers, and chart-topping trailers, but specifically, what are some great horror trailers? What are your faves? Which are scary on their own? Which get you in the mood? Which are a product of their time?
Personally, I love the hyperbole-filled ones of the 50s:
“More terrifying than any horror known to man comes a creeping crawling monster whose towering fury no one can escape. Tarantula. Science Fiction’s most terrifying thrill! Bullets can’t stop it. Dynamite can’t kill it. Tarantula.”
“Evolution reversed and horror that waited a hundred million years becomes a terrifying reality! Monster on the Campus. Your flesh will crawl. Your blood will chill… in TERROR. Monster on the Campus.”
“From outer space they came. Meteor borne, meteor strange. Now these amazing Monolith Monsters reveal powers. Shocking beyond belief! The Monolith Monsters! The most startling science fiction concept ever brought to the screen! Stranger than anything science had ever discovered. As thrill crowds upon thrills.”
