We've got a trailer for a new film with a great title called The Town that Dreaded Sundown. It's just one of those movie titles that perfectly roll off the tongue. The movie is a remake of a 1976 thriller that was based on a true story about a series of killings that afflicted a small town in the 1940s. The original film actually inspired one of the looks for Jason Voorhees in the Friday the 13th franchise. As a person that enjoys watching horror movies, this looks interesting to me, so I'll be checking it out. Of course, it's going to have some ridiculous moments, like the hotel room scene that you'll see in the trailer, but the ridiculousness is all part of what makes some horror movies fun to watch. Here's the synopsis:
Based on a terrifying true story, The Town That Dreaded Sundown picks up sixty-five years after a masked serial killer terrorized the small town of Texarkana, when the "moonlight murders” begin again. Is it a copycat or something even more sinister? A lonely high school girl, with dark secrets of her own, may be the key to catching the murderer.
The movie is set to premiere at Fantastic Fest and then play at Beyond Fest in Los Angeles and the BFI London Film Festival. It will open in theaters on October 16th.
