The first trailer used Herman’s Hermits “I’m Into Something Good” as a slow oldies song, and this new trailer is sticking to same formula by using The Zombies “Time Of The Season”. There is something appealing to a calming classic song and what is supposed to be terrifying horror.
The studio set up a screening for a special audience, who apparently looked to be jumpiest audience they could find, and filmed their reactions. A lot of people seemed to be genuinely scared, which is a good sign.
