Goodnight Mommy has been hailed as the scariest horror movie trailer of all time... but is it, really? Digging through my horror movie memories, I tried to think of which horror trailers genuinely freaked me out the most, which created the greatest wave of terror and unease.

Sure, Goodnight Mommy ranks pretty highly, but a lot of these freaky trailers can give Mommy a run for her money...
