The Town That Dreaded Sundown Remake/Sequel Trailer Online Now
The trailer for the Town That Dreaded Sundown remake has made its way online. Though it shares the same title as the original film and is being called a remake, the plot description makes this sound like a sequel:
Based on a terrifying true story, The Town That Dreaded Sundown picks up sixty-five 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.
This sequel and/or remake (sequemake? requel?) looks to be more of a straight slasher film than the original which I'm okay with because the "slasher" parts of the original film are actually pretty intense and suspenseful and while this may be an unpopular opinion; I personally think the documentary voiceovers and the ill-fitting comedy really dragged the original film down. Sure, this could still totally suck ass, but it looks decent enough to me, I'll give it a look when it comes out October 16th. Check out the trailer below:
