October 20 – Halloween Countdown

This might be one of the more unique trailers from the year.

It says so little, while also setting tone.

I guess it is more of a teaser, but still.

Small town imagery flashing by, discordant sound, jumpy scratchy edits- flashes of action, a pile of clothes (a body?) in water, a man crying? Praying? A girl whispering “They’re coming” followed by a male voice intoning “It’s Time”. All we’re missing is a “It has Begun” for the horror trifecta of portentous doom.

Then a brief, evocative scene. If this was a short film, I’d love it. As a trailer- I like it a lot.
