'A Classic Horror Story' tells the story of five carpoolers traveling together in a motorhome. While on the road, they crash into a tree while attempting to avoid an animal carcass. The crash disorients them and when they finally come to it, they realize that they are in the middle of nowhere. Surrounded by a dense forest with no road in sight, they chance upon a wooden house. However, this house holds some dark secrets and has them all wondering if they will make it through the night alive.

The cryptic trailer features no more than the wooden house, sitting calmly in the middle of a forest clearing. Then, however, the scene shifts to a heavily red-tinted one, with obscure images and ominous music, building up the suspense. The trailer barely gives out any information and that's precisely what makes this footage so unsettling -- you don't know what lurks around the corner, but it's something dark and sinister.
The caption alongside the trailer reads, 'A camper. A car crash. An abandoned house. Children’s music in the background. Think you've seen it before? Look again.'
