    "Paranormal Activity"

    I'm going to see a special screening of this film in Lincoln, Neb., on Thursday night and all I can say is the trailer looks FREAKY.

    www.paranormalactivity-movie.com

    It looks very "Blair Witch-y" so I may be in the fetal position the whole time. Has anybody else heard anything about this film or seen any screenings of it?

    From Bloody Disgusting:

    "I was waiting until it was 100% locked down, but the cat is out of the bag, Oren Peli's hotly anticipated indie haunt film Paranormal Activity (early review) is aiming for a limited release on September 25th from Paramount Pictures. Word has is we'll be seeing some alterations to the festival cut, including a new ending. In the film a young couple suspects that their house is haunted by a malevolent entity. They set up video surveillance to capture evidence of what happens at night as they sleep. Their surveillance and home videos have been edited into the 99 minute feature film "Paranormal Activity"."

    Never heard of it before just now, but it looks like something I might like.

    Sounds interesting and cool. Might have to wait until a DVD release though.

    Okay, I saw this film last night and all I have to say is that it is TERRIFYING.

    Literally, everyone in the theater was shrieking and screaming. One guy had an asthma attack.

    It is a 90-minute mind$#^% that totally plays on your sense of fear and suspense. It was sooooooo intense. Definitely an awesome movie if you enjoy having the ever-loving crap scared out of you - but I won't see it again. I didn't get any sleep last night because I was that freaked out.

    I hope it's unrelated to the first one. I doubt a sequel would work as well as the first did for the more gullible people out there
    What next? It seems every month lately there is something..

    It sure didn't for Blair Witch 2.

    I doubt I'll see it since I was bored by the first movie, but I really hate that there's a dog in the commercial. Almost any time an animal is in a horror movie, it ends up dead. Call me a traitor to my race, but that always bothers me more than the death of a human character.

    They made a sequal to that crappy movie? Needless to say...I won't be seeing it.

    I guess I'm not that surprised though...it only made like a billion dollars more than it took them to make it.

    It is related to the first one; this was confirmed when they announced a sequel was going to be made. That's why they changed the original ending so they could use the same girl again.

    BTW, it's always interesting to read between the lines of the production of these trailers. I noticed a lot same sound samples used here that were also used in the teaser trailer for Terminator Salvation, which in turn were used in the trailer for The Road. Seems like all the trailer production houses bought the same sound sample library!

    If Jack Bauer was on Heroes, he wouldn't need to save the cheerleader to save the world.

    At the end of the trailer did anyone notice what is written in the mirror? If you look in the mirror by the carpet, there is something written in it. I can't figure out what it says. Also you can see the baby sitting up in the crib through the mirror, but the baby can't be found otherwise.

    You think so? I thought the wide-release ending was cheesy.

    I liked it. More realism that the rest of the movie was trying to portray.
    The revised ending kinda felt like a 'this was actually just a movie the whole time' ending
    What next? It seems every month lately there is something..
