Name That Trauma:: Reader Adrian H. on a Psycho-esque Trailer

April 4th, 2012 by unkle lancifer · 7 Comments

Hey Kindertrauma,
I remember seeing a trailer in the late 90s, perhaps 1999, or early 2000s, in a Pay-Per-View channel back in the day. It used to play constantly, almost every 5 minutes or so. The trailer showed shots of a house, a woman screaming, perhaps a shot of a knife. All I can remember is that it ended with a house darkening its lights and then the title. Somehow I thought it was the Psycho remake, but it’s only because the word “psycho” was somehow engrained into my memory of this trailer. I know it’s not much to go on, but it’s something that’s been bugging me, cause it’s one of the only things in my childhood that scared me a bit.

    I’m very curious about this one. I went through a bunch of titles from the time period and checked out a bunch of trailers but found nothing. Hope it rings some kind a of bell out there!

    Well, that description’s a tad generic, but I remember THIS TV advert stuck with me for decades after freaking me out at 3 AM (even though I’ve never seen the movie itself):

    Problem is, it aired in 1977 on broadcast TV, so that’s probably not it.

    Was that Rob Zombie in the mind of Norman Bates flashes?

    Apocalypse, I noticed that too! Weird.

    That trailer has a real “Natural Born Killers” vibe going on.

    It might have been interesting if the movie was less shot for shot remake and more along the lines of that trailer.
