    Zombie Dude had me thinking about Annabelle's trailer and how it lays out the plot and reveals the best scares. What trailers made you say "I have to see that movie?" My favorite is this one from The Exorcist. It tells you all you need to know, shows you nothing and is perhaps the most disturbing trailer of all time.

    Oddly enough this one strangely captured my youthful imagination as a child, however that may have been an early preoccupation with the female form rather than anything else. For me when I saw the film many years later I was sorely let down.

    Still what an oddball trailer.

    The best parts of the film are all given away in the trailer unfortunately.
    Great thread, love watching trailers.

    I've always enjoyed the trailer for Knife of Ice:

    Love this trailer. Is that Lalo Schifrins original score?...

    That is incredibly powerful.
    I can imagine audiences being seriously unsettled seeing this on the big screen. The score is awesome too.

    It sounds like Krzysztof Penderecki, though I could be mistaken.

    It is great. Another unsettling trailer which reveals nothing is this one for The Shining.

    Definitely not subtle but I love this one for that deep voice narrating with a deadpan ominous tone as well as the action scenes interspersed.
    It gives way too much away, but as a kid these types of trailers had me riveted and sold on the films.

    Always loved this trailer growing up. Really had me freaked out.

    Love it or hate it, this trailer for Watchmen is excellent.

    This is my favorite fan made trailer. If you are a fan of the Dark Knight trilogy, it's a must watch.

    That trailer is creepy as hell, and even more disturbing, than the movie itself.
