Trailer Analysis: 

American Horror Show Still_a

The trailer for “The Last American Horror Show” is four minutes, twenty seconds.  This awards ample time to present the three shorts comprising the film. A view at the first story begins after  the opening title sequence. A grind-house stylized presentation greets the viewer. The overlay sets the tone for seventies B-movie acting and cringe-worthy portrayals. No need to channel attention to kitten videos just yet. This short film is an execution with a clear purpose. The aim is to replicate the tonality of films from the seventies/eighties era.

A young boy pleas with his father and/or grandmother to buy him a mail order toy. The young man described the item as:

“..a sea creature that you could take care of.”

The manufacturer’s address offers a hint of the horrifying outcome. The zipcode ends in the devilish numeral sequence; 666. Also offered is a morbid advisory printed on the advertisement . There’s a sense of deja vu while viewing these chain of events. Viewers can already summarize the malicious intent this item will offer. One can also deduce the forthcoming gore-centric presentation. The sequences that follow are random inter-cuts. Through the barrage of footage a family battles a chupacabra looking creature.

This is the trailer for the first entry to “The Last American Horror Story” titled “Night of The Sea Monkey”

What this mini trailer could have done without is the eight seconds worth of film festival merits. Superimposed on screen were an assortment of crests.  Sure, the accolades demand exhibition. Yet the insert cries/begs audiences to view the film. The perfect metaphor can be that cute puppy dog jumping and barking at the pet shop window.

Large vast are brewing on an industrial oven. Can you smell what this trailer is cooking? Superimposed on screen is the following:

“Now and then the folks at Lambshire throw a get together.”

Followed by several text messages on screen. Presented is a man knocking on the door to a home. Stillness surrounds the anxious shirt and tie donned individual. Within the upcoming scene is a young woman, disheveled and bound by chains. She grabs a hammer from the table before her.  It’s obvious what the central theme to this segment is. Freshen up, its time to dine.  This is Lamb’s Fed!
