Startled! (2016) - Spoof Horror Film Trailer and News for Grindsploitation: The Movie (2016)
Coming out this year is Grindsplitation: The Movie which is a horror anthology that features clips and trailers from over 40 Indie film makers. One of these trailers is by Ali Reynard the producer of Fear Town, USA, and The Slashening.
Startled! is a fake trailer for a slasher film, in it two girls are baby sitting on their own, a voice over says they are about to have the longest night of their lives. The trailer is a collection of false jump scares with the lead girl getting startled by a collection of different things (mainly a cat, and her friend). Jump scares in films are pretty lazy, especially false ones and so this trailer was amusing enough, the voice over adds a lot to it. Check it out below, at two minutes it isn't going to take up much of your time.
The trailer for Grindsploitation: The Movie is also below, the films contained within it all seem to be purposely schlocky and full of funny bad looking effects, at one minute forty it will take up even less of your time.
