Now I don’t know much about the original The Town That Dreaded Sundown from 1976, but I do know it came out before slasher films became super popular and crafted personalities for each series of films. When you look back and see the film’s plain looking slasher, the Phantom Killer, you realize the film’s more about suspense rather than the murders.
With this trailer for the Blumhouse produced reboot, it looks like nostalgia reigns supreme. Not the best trailer (that exposition is really bad), but unique enough that I’m willing to give it a shot. The Town That Dreaded Sundown hits theaters with its slick title October 16th.
