Film: Hell No, a refreshingly sensible trailer for a faux horror film

Posted by Liv Siddall,

We’ve all been there, sitting under blankets and screaming at the TV “DON’T GO IN THERE!” at mind-numbing horror films showing busty, sweaty teens walk absent-mindedly into abandoned shacks to meet their early graves. It’s those standard horror film formulas that, although predictable, seem to have us enthralled during each and every film they present themselves in. As antidote to this universal problem that will probably never go away, Director Joe Nicolosi has created this faux trailer to poke fun at the textbook horror movie clichés. In Joe’s version, the teens don’t enter the abandoned shack, they can’t be bothered to play with the Ouija board, and decide against watching the video that kills anyone that sets eyes on its content. Very well done.
