The first trailer of the TV-MA-rated “Suburban Screams” dropped in tandem with the series announcement in mid-September, and it provides a great first look at how exactly this genre-blending show will work. The show’s horror movie-like elements have been described by some as “reenactments,” which feels a little inaccurate given that the phrase calls to mind corny ’80s and ’90s shows like “Unsolved Mysteries” and “Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction.” It’s clear from the trailer that there’s some real artistry involved here, not to mention decent production value.
The 80-second sneak preview also shows the series’ more reality show-like elements, including talking head interviews with the subjects of the stories themselves. Plus, it features our first look at a spooky-looking haunted house story, a bunny man killer, and more. Check the trailer out above, then mark your calendar for “John Carpenter’s Suburban Screams,” which is set to hit Peacock on Friday, October 13, 2023.
