Scariest Movie Trailers of All Time

Dr. Frank Gaskill

This is my favorite time of year. Falling leaves, pumpkins, and terror! While my kiddos aren’t old enough to appreciate these films, I’m very excited for the time that I can share with them the history of fear in film. Scary movies are like roller coasters. We ride them over and over knowing how we will scream with our friends. Here are my all-time terrifying films in all their glorious original trailer formats fit for Halloween!
