Make Your Own Slither Trailer

I love movie trailers. Ever see a trailer so great that you knew you had to see the movie? And then the movie sucked. Like Wild Wild West. And The Phantom Menace. Well, the movie Slither has a novel promotional tool. It's called Slug It Out and it lets you create your own trailer with clips from the movie, music, and titles. They actually held a contest and will be airing the winning trailer, but I think it's fun all by itself. Too bad it's not for a better movie. It looks like a rip-off of Night of the Creeps. I would've loved to create a trailer for Spiderman 2 or Revenge of the Sith.

By the way, why do so many horror movies these days claim to revolutionize the horror movie genre? And then they never do. Whatever.

That is pretty awesome. Not only is it something I've always wanted to do, it also shows how hard it is. Mine sucked, and I don't think it's just because of the movie clips. Pacing is hard.
I couldn't find a way to save it though. That's the only thing I'd be missing.

I admit, I never tried it. That movie's not my cup o' tea. But I'm hoping more websites will adopt the idea
