Earlier this week, a trailer for the upcoming thriller The Town That Dreaded Sundown was released featuring a logo fans of 80s and 90s cinema haven't seen in 15 years. The Town That Dreaded Sundown marks the return of Orion Pictures, the distributor of classics such as The Terminator, Robocop and Best Picture winner Silence of the Lambs, for the first time since 1999's One Man's Hero.
Here is the trailer carrying the original Orion logo:
Orion Pictures declared bankruptcy in 1991, but it was bought by MGM in 1996. MGM resurrected the brand in 2013, which is currently used on the syndicated series Paternity Court. MGM is now planning on using the brand for smaller, independent titles for VOD and limited theatrical releases.
The Town That Dreaded Sundown is actually the second recent production to carry the Orion Pictures banner, following the Brazilian film Vestido Pra Casar. However, MGM hasn't announced any future releases yet that will fall under the Orion brand. The Town That Dreaded Sundown is also produced by the BH Tilt label, a multi-platform expansion of Jason Blum's Blumhouse Productions company.
