And no, I don't mean anything involving Keenan Ivory Wayans, either.

You remember how trailers for movies used to be even scarier than the movies they were made for?  Myself, I have two particular choices that very very few have ever come close to.

The first one is for the 1978 thriller (not technically a horror movie, y'see) Magic, one that I see garnered a few mentions here and there.  Just a simple clip of Fats, the featured dummy used by the movie's ventriloquist (Anthony Hopkins) and, staring dead straight into the camera, says four lines that bored into the hearts and souls of every fragile, impressionable child that caught it during the networks' "family hour".  Of course, we can't let this one go without a clip.  Watch and be horrified again, ya wuss.

The second one is for 1979's Tourist Trap.  This one was technically a horror movie, though not really all as good as its trailer would lead you to believe.  It did have Chuck Conners in it but that was as scary as it got.  Myself, this one scared the ever-living heck out of me because, hey, I was a very impressionable 13 year-old around that time and it had those black-eyed, screaming...things.  Just watch and see.

Oh, and I have to give an Honorable Mention to something that wasn't a horror movie or even a thriller, but rather just a simple sci-fi story.  But it was STILL scary.  Behold the trailer for Fantastic Planet.

So, there you have it.  Those are mine.  What are yours?

Fantastic Planet is a freaky movie. Even putting the imagery aside, there's something really disturbing about that stoned, artistic animation style that was around in the 70s.

Here's a TV spot that freaked me out as a kid:

I just stumbled across this one and didn't see a more recent "trailers" thread to add it to. (Sorry, if there is one)

This one's for THIRST, the Australian horror flick from 1979.  They used to run this a bit when we first got cable in the early 80s.  When I was around ten, just the ad in the cable guide scared the hell out of me.  At thirty-**cough**, it's a bit glorious camp, yet still quite effective. 

Based on the exposition in the trailer, not to mention it's corny attempt at gravitas, one would expect it be NECKS: THE VAMPIRUS HORROR.  Take note of the full-throttled "tribute" to O Fortuna they use as a musical bed.  It's Carl Orff via Carl Stalling.

On the plus side, it does have Henry Silva.

One of my all time favorite trailers: The Beast Within (1982)

Recently discovered: Blood Beat (1985). Looks very cheesy but the actual film is not (very):

Love The Satan's Blade (1984) trailer. Sadly the movie itself is not that great:

I remember the TV spot for The Shining creeping me out at the time. Couldn't find it on YouTube, but here's a trailer that would probably have done a good job as well.
