These 1980s Local News Teasers Are Terrifying (VIDEO)

Tonight at 11, tune in and be TERRIFIED.

Here's a supercut of New York City local news teasers from the 1980s, when the city was a much rougher place.

A sampling of the stories: "Manhunt for a renegade cop"..."Misleading labels at the meat counter"..."The Tylenol Killer"... "Undercover cops in the classroom"... "The search is on for the High-Rent Rapist"..."Could happy hour be banned?"... And "Is your holiday bird safe to eat?"

The mashup was made by Matthew Callan, who writes on YouTube that all of these teasers aired during 1985 "holiday specials aimed at kids."

(Although it looks like this video was posted back in 2009, it's making the rounds today, and is definitely worth a watch.)
