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

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.

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.
