Watch: First Trailer For Horror Remake 'The Town That Dreaded Sundown' Premiering At Fantastic Fest

It has been a long time since we’ve seen the Orion Pictures logo—maybe that says something about our age—but it’s the first thing you’ll notice in the new trailer for “The Town That Dreaded Sundown.” A remake of the cult 1976 movie directed by Charles B. Pierce, this new promo reveals that the do-over has been given a contemporary polish. 

Starring Addison Timlin, Gary Cole, Joshua Leonard and more, the story kicks off 65 years after the events of the first movie, with another moonlight killer behind a series of grisly slayings. Is the original murderer still at it, is this a copycat or is it something a bit more complicated than all that? Well, you’ll just have to wait and see what director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (“American Horror Story“) and writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (the “Carrie” remake) have cooked up.

“The Town That Dreaded Sundown,” arrives on October 16 and will make its world premiere at Fantastic Fest. Watch below.
