I'm a sucker for that moment when you go the cinemas to see the latest flick, and a teaser trailer plays out that blows your mind, and fills you with absolute anticipation for what is being advertised.
The horror genre in my humble opinion have the best teaser trailers around. So... here is my list of the top 10 BEST horror movie teaser trailers.
NOTE: Not every one of these films necessarily turned out any good, but the trailer certainly grabbed your attention, and succeeded in building demand for them.
10. Halloween H20: 20 Years Later
This was every Halloween fan's dream... 20 years nce 1978, not a word of news about the future of the Halloween saga nce the pitiful Halloween 6.... until this. The return of Laurie Strode? I'm in!
9. Saw V
Definitely not an amazing film by any stretch, but the style of this teaser is really really cool.
Talk about bad films.... this trailer alone was the best part of a HORRIBLE Godzilla effort by the 'Independence Day guys', but what a trailer it was.
7. An American Werewolf in London
Clasc film with an amazing blend of horror and comedy. This trailer sums up the film pretty damn well.
6. Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan
Come on, who can hate this??
5. Paranormal Activity
The trailer without a doubt sold me (and apparently sold the rest of the world too)
Alien was a really scary movie, even its trailer is scary.
3. Red Eye
The only reason I went to see this was because of this trailer. Not many films can start as a potential romantic comedy and end with a very intriguing nod to horror. Unfortunately, the film ended up being extremely average...
2. The Blair Witch Project
There were quite a few teaser trailers for this film, but this one has to take the crown of being the best of bunch. Absolute sheer terror, and that was just from the little black and white clip that played in cinemas worldwide!
Probably the only trailer to not even show the title of the film, this teaser launched a HUGE marketing campaign by Paramount that ended up paying off as Cloverfield, the modern day Godzilla, ended up being one of the biggest films of 2008.
