William Castle Presents…Saw 3D?
One of my favorite bad trailers of all time is My Bloody Valentine 3D. The trailer does a fine job of advertising for the film; it’s not until the end of it when things go horribly awry. You see, according to the trailer fire is going to fly out of the screen. Observe this still:
“But wait, Logan, ya lovable trickster,” you say. “That’s just advertising the fact that the film is 3D!” Then I ask you: Why are the people looking up? I’m no expert, but I don’t quite think 3D works that way, Lionsgate.
But it seems that Lionsgate never got my memo, as now they’ve gone and done it again with the new Saw 3D trailer. No fire this time. This time? Oh, this time one of the characters is actually going to come out of the screen, reach into your theater, and pull you into the movie. I’m not making this up. Let’s watch:
People, this is blatant false advertising. In fact, if I go to see Saw 3D and the theater has NOT equipped my seat with a spiky torture device thingy that comes over my head and locks me in place…oh, I’m going to be mad.
