Trailer Park Tuesdays - The Town That Dreaded Sundown
Trailer Park Tuesdays.
Now 87% ebola free.
This week at TPT we got the trailer for the remake of the 1976 true-story horror flick The Town That Dreaded Sundown. The original film (I reviewed it HERE) has some effective scare sequences (and a great looking villain), but it suffers from wild tonal swings and some bad comedy. So a remake is not something I am opposed to. From the looks of this first trailer, it is even something I am going to be supportive of.
From some early reviews, it seems this new version is going in an interesting direction, more of a slasher-type thing, maybe? Also, very stylish. And the trombone kill is in there! YAY! But there's no Andrew Prine. Booo! Guess you can't have everything.
The film is being released by Blumhouse Productions though the long-dormant MGM subsidiary Orion Pictures, and I won't lie, seeing that Orion logo made me smile and put me on this movie's side early.
The Town That Dreaded Sundown (2014) is getting a limited release on October 16th, probably nowhere near where you live, so you'll have to seek it out on VOD. Do it, or The Phantom Killer will get you.
