Someone Has Taken Their Love Of '90s Horror Movie Trailers One Step Too Far!
That someone is me — a child of the '90s with an undying love for (as Roger Ebert put it) the #DeadTeenager movie genre that was resurrected and reinvented during the later half of that decade. (Thank you, #KevinWilliamson!)
I may not know what you did last summer, but I do know that for every successful Scream movie released, 10 half-assed knock-offs were churned out a week later (I'm looking at you, Urban Legends: Final Cut). The demand for these films was strong, and while few of them were claimed to be great pieces of cinema, we can all agree on the fact that most of them were really fun.
For all you people that also snuck into cinemas or borrowed bootlegged copies to watch these films, I hope you enjoy my shamelessly self-promoted portfolio of modernized trailers!
6. I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997)
It's all about secrets, sharp hooks and #SarahMichelleGellar. Warning: This trailer is spoilerific.
5. I Still Know What You Did Last Summer (1998)
No, Brandy, Rio de Janeiro is not the capital of Brazil.
4. Scream (1996)
"You hit me with the phone, d*ck!"
3. Scream 2 (1997)
Twice the terror! Double the fear! "Nice streaks!"
2. Stab 3: Return To Woodsboro (2000?)
Oh, what could've been:
1. Valentine (2001)
Most guys like a hot girl in a hot tub. But me? "I'd rather be boiled alive."
Which of these trailers did you think did the best job at modernizing the film?
