Same here, Peter.  It took me something like two hours to download the QuickTime file on my old 56k modem.

It's just occurred to me which was the trailer that literally gave me the most goose bumps... I went to see a film when when I was about 5 or 6 years old ( my memory tells me it was Superman II, but it might possibly have been Flash Gordon) and, for some reason still unknown to me to this day for it was so inappropriate for the target audience, there was a trailer for the Shining before it.

Elevators doors accompanied by a hum from hell. The doors opened. Blood flooded out in slow motion, sweeping furniture as it went.

I was rigid with terror, as you might expect.

Peter, the same thing happened to me in 1979, when my father took my sister & me to see Disney's THE BLACK HOLE... and sure enough, that same trailer for THE SHINING was played before the film.  It almost looked like opening credits, and I turned to my dad and asked, "Is this the start of the movie?"  Then the blood came spilling out.

I will never, ever, ever forget that!!

I didn't get to see SUPERMAN II in the theater, but I did see FLASH GORDON in the theater, and I remember seeing the trailer to THE SHINING as a child at the theater, so I am betting it was before FLASH GORDON. I have tried to recall which movie it was that I saw  that trailer, so thanks, Peter, for possibly answering that question for me.

I saw trailers for Damien: The Omen and The Warriors before U certificate films back in the '70's.

There really was not the level of protection then that there is now, even Logan's Run, a PG certificate film had Jenny Agguter pretty much naked in it was an A certificate so any kid, of any age could see it.
Totally different times.

Exactly! As a kid in the early 70`s, i actively sought
out late night horror movies on tv, the ones i remember
scaring the crap out of me are Quatermass and the Pit,
and Trilogy of Terror...that little African doll!
