See the chilling trailer for ‘Night Film’ by Marisha Pessl — EXCLUSIVE

Mrs. Horror Boom (HorrorBoom.com):

We don’t know if we’ll ever get used to seeing ‘trailers’ for novels, but this caught our eye (and we like clever viral marketing for the horror genre, too). Get a load of this synopsis:

    • I know. Check out the piece on the fictional posters if you can–they did a really beautiful job on the artwork. Especially considering these are fictional films, and though the novel has quite a bit of mixed media (newspaper clippings, message board entries, secret websites the author gained access to), I’m not even sure the posters are included in there, maybe just online.
