I hated Stephen King when I was younger. Pretty much because I read Firestarter in one day and I did not enjoy it. I loved Cycles of the Werewolf though. about 6-7 years ago I finally read ‘Salem’s Lot and his writing clicked in my head. He writes books about people, about society, about growing up. He doesn’t really write horror novels. That’s just the method he uses to tell the story.

It’s time for another instalment of our new House of Horror Blog feature called Trailer Trash. Every week, we’ll take a look at five themed horror movie trailers from different eras and laugh at them. These trailers are either cheesy, laughable, ridiculous, or just plain beyond bizarre.
Which is the worst of the lot? Which is the best? Feel…
Rudolph Junkins: I understand, uh, one of the perpetrators, uh, defecated on the dashboard. Now, I woulda thought you’d be madder than hell at that. And I thought you woulda reported that.
Arnie Cunningham: Shit wipes off.
