Classic Horror Movie Trailers

Classic Horror Movie Trailers to Watch

Some horror movies are classics. They are the horror movies that everyone has seen at least once. Well, not everyone. My son refuses to watch horror movies at all. But almost everyone has seen these classic horror movies. They include the original Halloween movie, Friday the 13th movie, and A Nightmare on Elm Street.

Watching these movie trailers not only brings back memories of the horror movie itself, but also of who I was with and what was going on with my life when I watched them. Have fun watching these classic horror movie trailers.

Best Horror Movie Ever?

Probably the best horror movie of all time is the original Halloween movie. Although most people will argue that it's not true, Halloween had very little gore or violence. It was so scary because it was suspenseful. If you don't believe it, watch Halloween the movie again.

If you haven't seen Halloween, (where have you been?) it's the story of Michael Myers. Michael murdered his sister on Halloweeen when he was just six years old. He was locked away. Now 15 years later, Michael escapes around Halloween. His psychiatrist must try to stop him from murdering again on Halloween.

Another Slasher Horror Movie Classic

Friday the 13th was released in 1980 and was a copycat of Halloween. Even so, Friday the 13th is an excellent and classic horror movie. Critics didn't agree, but moviegoers loved it. Friday the 13th is a slasher movie. Friday the 13th was so popular that several sequels (too many) have been made.

In Friday the 13th, Jason is the killer. He terrorizes a summer camp's counselors. Many years earlier, two summer camp counselors had been murdered at the camp. The camp is now being reopened, much to the astonishment of the locals. I will never forget the Kevin Bacon scene. You know the one.

You Won't Go to Sleep After Watching This Classic Horror Movie

A Nightmare on Elm Street is another classic slasher movie. Freddie Krueger is the terrifying boogie man in this horror movie classic. Nightmare on Elm Street was written and directed by Wes Craven. A Nightmare on Elm Street is Johnny Depp's first movie.

A Nightmare on Elm Street occurs in a quiet midwestern town. Don't all horror movies occur in midwestern towns? Anyway, the story goes that teenagers are being terrorized when they go to sleep at night. The ghost of a child murderer enters their nightmares.

These are the horror movies from my teen years that have become famous enough to be considered horror movie classics. These are the horror movies that my great-grandkids will probably watch. These horror movies are the future's version of the classic horror movie Psycho.

      yeah, thrillers are excellent, like Rosemary's Baby. But I'm always in the movie for a good scare-the-hell out of you monsterfest like John Carpenter's The Thing.

      cgull8m, I like suspenseful thrillers, too. The Exorcist and Omen are definitely up there in the top 10 of the best horror movies ever.

      I like Alfred Hitchcock thrillers, I liked Exorcist and Omen, they tend to be believable :)
