One of my favorite fake trailers in the GRINDHOUSE film had to be the trailer for DON'T - a fake trailer for the classic haunted house films of the 70s. The trailer's execution was perfect. It did what most trailers from the 70s did - showed every death and gave away most of the films shocks and scares. :)
I saw this and instantly thought about the trailer for another fave of mine THE LEGEND OF HELL HOUSE. HELL HOUSE is a slow paced haunted house film that is beautifully shot. It's fun movie to watch on a rainy Sunday afternoon, but slightly hard to keep your eyes open for if you're like me and like your scares under cover of darkness.
Watching the trailers back to back is a fun way to see just how true to form this director was when making it. And, I can not tell you how happy I was to see that the makers of this trailer were none other than the amazing Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg of SPACED and SHAUN OF THE DEAD fame! WHOOT!
And, the film that inspired it.
