Gotta give it up to the trailer-makers this time out. On the surface this brand-new trailer for a horror flick called Primeval looks like your typical Carnage & Chaos clip, but I think the promo does a pretty slick job of piquing the curioisity. As in ... so, like, who (or WHAT) is this legendary serial killer who's killed over 300 people while never getting caught? Who???

OK, so it's not exactly rocket science, but it's nice to see a little ambiguity and creativity in a horror flick trailer. Consider me suitably intrigued by Primeval, which stars Dominic Purcell, Brooke Langton and Orlando Jones. The director is longtime TV helmer Michael Katleman and the screenwriters are Brancato & Ferris, also known as the guys who wrote The Game, Terminator 3 and ... Catwoman.

Plus it looks like Primeval is set to become one half of a "competing projects" story, kinda like what happened with Deep Impact vs. Armageddon, Dante's Peak vs. Volcano or A Bug's Life vs. Antz. But if I told you the title of Primeval's direct competition, that would spoil the mystery laid down in the trailer! (OK fine, if you must know, click here.)

Anyway, the flick looks like it could be pretty spooky / icky / gory, so I'm down. Then again it could be Anaconda 3, right? We won't get to find out until April 13.
