Month of Scares Movie Trailers!

So, innocently enough, during an evening of peaceful insomnia (not true – there is no such thing as peaceful insomnia – it is wretched) I decided to look at upcoming movie trailers. Because I suffer from denial, it failed to occur to me that I would be looking at disturbing trailers because it’s October. This was extremely helpful for my insomnia (again, not true). Here are five scary movie trailers, from “I’m never seeing this,” to, “I’m totally seeing this,” based on my impeccable taste.

The first one includes William Shatner, “infected elves” and a mythical Christmas horror creature named, “Krampus.” Good stuff:

Don’t worry, it came out October 2nd, so you’re good to go. What? You’ve already seen it? You own it? You sneaky little minx.

This next one has my favorite actor, Keanu Reeves. He is amazing in everything he does (true?). His timing and finessing of the English language is unprecedented, except for maybe by Dame Judi Dench. They should make a movie together. Last Exotic Marigold Hotel III with Keanu as the bell boy who’s really a successful entrepreneur (twist)? Anyways, “Knock Knock” is going to be amazing, and watching the trailer was a cathartic experience for me (not true):

Don’t open your door – I might ruin your life with my sexy schoolgirl costume! It’s raining outside! You deserve it! Girl power! #hillary2015

This one is called, “Cooties,” and comes out this weekend, unless it’s Monday and you’ve already seen it by now. I can’t stand Rainn Wilson, so am going to pass. But I know a lot of people like zombies, so here you go, zombie people:


I really like this next one, and almost posted it as my favorite, but I know my audience and wait until you see the favorite. But for this one, I learned the term “Final Girl,” which I think is cool. And, when I was growing up, Friday the 13th etc. were still a big deal. So, near and dear. And Taissa Farmiga is the bee’s knees:

Cool, right?

Last one…hold onto your hats. I got chills several times while watching this, and then got them again watching it again (true). Given that I’ve spent the last few years hanging out with you guys, I’m pretty sure this is right up your alley. And I think there’s some guy in it that you like. If we lived near each other maybe we could go together. But since we don’t, let’s go separately and then talk about it, okay? I have a love/hate relationship with Guillermo del Toro that developed while in the middle of watching “Pan’s Labyrinth” when I realized it was (spoiler) not at all the lighthearted mythical tale I had convinced myself it going to be (denial). I don’t trust the guy at all, but that can only add to the fear I will feel watching his latest, right? Boo! Awesome.

You’re welcome.

    I have a really hard time seeing Nina Dobrev as anything but a sexy vampire. Is she a sexy vampire in that movie? If not it might be too confusing for me to watch.

      In that thumbnail she bears a resemblance to my beloved AT&T girl, and was super pumped about this movie. However, I think the movie’s premise is still good enough to get me to watch it despite my disappointment finding out it wasn’t her.

    I’m super over zombies and I’ve never been a fan of Eli Roth, but I’m deeply on board with everything else on this list.

    We rented Cooties from our cable on demand a couple weeks ago. We could not watch more than 15 minutes because it was so gross. Mr. Costco and I would have toughed it out, but our out of town family guest could barely look at the screen. It did not help that we were eating dinner. Never watch zombie stuff while you are eating dinner. A lesson we should have learned from however many seasons of the Walking Dead.

    The opening credits feature a very disgusting montage of chicken nuggets. Just a warning.

      It looks horrible. Thank you for taking the hit so the rest of us don’t have to go through that.

    This ranking is perfect and I will consider myself a failure at life if I don’t see all of these movies. (If I do see them all, that will also feel like a kind of failure.)

  5. flanny says:

    I’m so scared of all of these.

  6. I can’t wait to see Crimson Peak even though I know I’ll be terrified and miserable the whole time. Why must I be both a total wuss AND super into creepy stuff??
