Paranormal Activity 2
This is a post because I'm not going to talk to heavily about the impending release of Kip William's rather rushed sequel to Oren Peli's stupendously successful Paranormal Activity, inventively titled PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2. The film's trailer hit American cinemas today in order to capitalise on the hordes of school age girls going to watch a new Twilight movie.
Now, it's funny how Paramount Pictures have managed to spool a 1 minute trailer when PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2 only started shooting a couple of weeks ago; perhaps that's why the trailer is predominantly footage from the first film, including audience reaction shots. Before the negative outflow comes cascading forth and people go on about how this is simply a studio cashing in on the success of the first film, I must say Paranormal Activity scared me and I'm fairly immune to horror films. I saw the film at the cinema and while watching thought it was disappointing. It wasn't until I got home and went to bed that night that the real horror began and went on for four or five nights after.
If you're still unsure about PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2 then re-watch this trailer and pause it when the dark figure of the possessed woman appears. Now look at the reflection between the crib and the mirror... notice anything unusual with the baby?
