Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

Book trailers are usually pretty hit and miss, but these creeptastic trailers for Robison Wells' Variant will draw you in — and then make you have to take a shower.


Variant looks like the young-adult dystopian hotness, and we're excited to bring you an exclusive look at these disturbing book trailers. Check out two more below.

If you've been missing the dystopian boarding school series Tower Prep as much as we have, then Variant may be just what you've been waiting for.


And it must be said, whoever made these book trailers had an eye for appalling weirdness. The horrible state of the headmaster's fingernails is enough to give me nightmares. Here are two more trailers:

In this riveting thriller with a sci-fi twist, 17-year-old Benson Fisher thought that a scholarship to the exclusive Maxfield Academy would be the chance of a lifetime. He was wrong.

Now he's trapped in a school that's surrounded by a razor-wire fence, where video cameras monitor his every move. Where there are no adults, and the students have divided into gangs to survive. And when Benson stumbles upon the real secret the school has been hiding, he realizes that escape may be impossible.

In VARIANT, debut teen author Robison Wells combines pulse-pounding action and high-stakes suspense with characters that are hauntingly real. The result is a story that left James Dashner, the New York Times bestselling author of The Maze Runner, exclaiming "I loved it! The twist behind it all is my favorite since Ender's Game." The first in a series, VARIANT will leave readers breathlessly awaiting the sequel.
