They just don't make 'em like they use to. Forget the torture porn, boring remakes, or the gawd-awful PG-13 wankfests, the trailers for horror movies of yesteryear were better and scarier (yes scarier) than anything we get now. HorrorBid takes a look back at some of the best horror movie trailers that ever graced the screen.#10. A Nightmare on Elm Street 1984
Chicks in bathtubs! French-kisng phones! People-eating beds! The 80s were a glorious, glorious time.

Dont be fooled by the bouncy opening disco muc. Mr. Voice Over is going to make sure you find the idea of a menstrual ssy Spacek pants-fillingly terrifying.
http://youtu.be/yJe0iVo8y3A#8. Night of the Creeps 1986
"If you scream, youre dead." This is how you re-invigorate the zombie genre. They dont have to run fast, they just have to be created by space slugs. Its so easy! Plus Tom Atkins. Enough said!http://youtu.be/XW8F1boWgv0#7. Funhouse 1981
Man, mixing carnies and monsters is like being stabbed with a pitchfork that gives you cancer.http://youtu.be/lhYGIbEMDzc#6. The Gate 1987
The best teen-metalheads-open-a-portal-to-naked-claymation-demons movie ever.
http://youtu.be/ZOX6-Rw5PWc#5. Sleepaway Camp 1983
This trailer guy is especially unsettling, because of the perverse pleasure thats palpable in his voice when he says things like, "You wont be coming home." Why so jolly?
http://youtu.be/yaAcitYY4OU#4. Halloween 1978
Sorry Rob, the original wins the trailer race all the way.
http://youtu.be/ljchb1tsLfs#3. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 1974
Once again, never underestimate the power of a creepily calm voiceover. This trailer is a like a home movie you were never, ever meant to see.
http://youtu.be/EbLSoRpgr04#2. Friday the 13th 1980
From the "kill-kill-kill...mom-mom-mom" soundtrack to the shrieking violin strings to the creepy-as-fuck voiceover guy, this pretty much sums up what was great about 80s horror.http://youtu.be/nYLWO3NokyY#1. Exorcist 1973
Three words, THIS IS SCARY! 3 more words ITS FREAKING SATAN! Enough said.http://youtu.be/YDGw1MTEe9k
