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.
