The Town That Dreaded Sundown

The last round of films playing at Fantastic Fest later this month was just revealed (check out the full line-up right here), and one of those films has just debuted the first trailer for The Town That Dreaded Sundown. The film seems to simultaneously be a remake of the original 1976 horror film and a sequel since it takes place 66 years after the events of the first film where a masked serial killer terrorized the small town of Texarkana. There are clear references to the original film, but plenty of new terror to get a whole new generation interested. On a fun note, it's cool to see the revived Orion Pictures logo back again. Watch!

Here's the first trailer for Alfonso Gomez-Rejon's The Town That Dreaded Sundown (via Blumhouse):

The Town That Dreaded Sundown

Based on a terrifying true story, The Town That Dreaded Sundown picks up 66 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. Addison Timlin ("Californication"), Gary Cole (Office Space), Joshua Leonard (The Blair Witch Project) and more star in the film from director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon ("American Horror Story") and writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (2013's Carrie). Orion Pictures releases the film October 16th.

    It looks like a fun flick to take Felicia. She's nice and when she gets scared in the theater she like to snuggle and that's when I make my move.... What were we talking about?

    Nice potatoe sack! Lol. Kinda wish they were a little more creative with the mask. Creators of American horror story definitely know what they are doing though.
