Paranormal Activity 2 (2010)


Horror flick catfight everyone!

For any Paranormal Activity fans out there, you probably know by now that a sequel was quickly green-lit after its surprising theatrical run. Well, as of last week, the word was that Paramount had hired screenwriter Michael R. Perry and director Kevin Greutert to do Paranormal Activity 2>.

The interesting part of this story was that Greutert made his directorial debut with Saw VI, which went head to head with Paranormal Activity this past Autumn. Further inetersting news was that the studio wanted PA2 in theaters on October 22, going head to head with – yup, you guessed it, Saw VII 3D.

That was the news as of when we taped Hauntcast 15.........how quickly things change, especially when you do a once a month show!

Well, now the word is that Twisted Pictures and Lionsgate have just exercised a contract option and are requiring Greutert to abandon PA2 and direct Saw VII 3D.

So, where does this leave PA2? We shall see…………I wasn't a fan of the first flick and given how Blair Witch 2 turned out, I wonder how this sequel will go.

Anyone interested?

  1. If the sequel is a regular "movie" without the found footage angle to it, it will change what everyone loved about the original one, the fact that it felt more real then a movie.

    Samething happened (as you very well mentioned) in Blairwitch 2. It just wasnt the same feeling.

    I bet they will probably do it with the same found footage style, but with some other couple doing the same thing. I hope thats what they do.
