Paranormal Activity 2 Trailer Made Me Crap Myself


I saw Paranormal Activity three times during its run in theaters last October and it scared the bejeezus out of me every time. Something about an invisible demon dragging a screaming chick down the hallway in her pajamas makes me pee a little in my pants every time. Apparently boatloads of Americans felt the same, because the movie made for $15,000 grossed over $107 million at the box office. I thought the concept was clever and well-executed and I thought the marketing behind the film was brilliant. Still, when a Paranormal Activity sequel was announced and fasttracked, I had to balk and give the finger to Hollywood and its propensity to overzealously hump the hell out of any film that is a surprise success. I immediately thought of The Blair Witch Project and its disastrous sequel.

And then I saw this trailer and changed my mind. Sure, it looks like more of the same, but if that’s the case, then we’re in for some butt-puckering goodness. Take a peek at the trailer after the jump and let me know what you think. As for me, I’m officially anticipating Paranormal Activity 2’s October 22, 2010 release.

  • Nope. Because now they’re going for cheap scares involving a toddler, and something bad is certain to happen to the dog. I hate when movies serve up pets as tacky horror-fodder. Count me out. Oh, and the COMING-ATCHA!!! motion-jumps are tacky, too. No, thanks.

    • Disagree.

      Cheap scares? How are moving sheets and someone getting pulled out of bed not “cheap?” Did you even see the original? It’s about the experience. If this is more of the first, I say amen and bring it on.
