The Town That Dreaded Sundown first trailer looks awesome

First trailer for The Town That Dreaded Sundown remake looks like a lot of retro fun

The first trailer for The Town That Dreaded Sundown remake has arrived and it’s very promising indeed.

Produced by American Horror Story‘s Ryan Murphy and directed by AHS regular Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, the film stars Addison Timlin, Gary Cole, Edward Herrmann, Veronica Cartwright, Denis O’Hare, Joshua Leonard and Spencer Treat Clark.

“Set in a world in which the original film exists and is very much part of popular consciousness, this update sees the quiet streets of Texerkana plagued by a maniac who bears striking resemblance to the same Phantom Killer who wreaked havoc on the town decades before. Is history repeating itself? Or has somebody just seen the original film too many times? Perhaps the key to the mystery lies with a young high school girl Jami, who must uncover the truth if she wants to survive the carnage.”
