Review: A dull design with nothing in the background and a simple hook coated in honey at the center. It might be thematic or emblematic, but it’s not interesting.

Trailer Rating: B- / B

Review: (#1) A nice teaser for a horror franchise reboot that has potential that doesn’t quite come out of the trailer, which looks largely familiar with a few bits of inspired inventiveness.

(#2) A genuinely more thrilling trailer with plenty of background details without exposing the vast significance of the film itself. It’s a relatively riveting effort.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
