The official trailer, quite simply, was the commercial released by the USA Network to support and promote the release of Nightmare on the 13th Floor. It pushed the film all the way up until it's premiere debut, in which it also played just before the actual film first aired. The commercial also functioned as the movie's trailer, and consisted of a series of selected shots from the film during advertising. Since the purpose of the trailer is to attract a wide and diverse audience to the film, these excerpts are usually drawn from the most exciting, funny, or otherwise noteworthy parts of the film but in abbreviated form and usually without producing spoilers. It was the perfect introduction to the film.

You can view and read the transcript for the entire trailer by reading its page in the Walkthrough.

I have yet to find an official trailer (but in this case the commercials would act in a similar fashion), but there is an unofficial trailer, made by a very dedicated fan. It definitely helps give the viewer an overall sense of the film, leaving them intrigued and wanting to see more.
