Paranormal Activity 2: Electric Boogaloo
I remember all the hype, all the ads showcasing crowds of shitless-scared audience members cowering behind friends, all the build up an talk about a movie that was literally supposed to redefine what it was to be scared. Yeah, and then I saw Paranormal Activity. Let-down central. I’ve been more spine-tingled by an episode of Goosebumps. In fact, if you want to see my half-assed and slightly one-sided review of the ‘Scariest Mess Ever,’ here it is.
And so we fast forward nearly a year later to right now, June 30th, and what do we find out? It’s sequel time, boys and girls. Just like we all assumed it would be in relatively short order. I mean you’d have to assume that a movie with such a shoestring budget that raked in the cash was going to spawn a sequel. It’s how the Hollywood Money Machine works. So I’m bringing you the teaser. And I have to admit, I’m kinda, sorta intrigued. Any movie that features a spooky and haunted baby is generally okay by me. Well, now you can judge for yourself. Oh, and if you want to read up on a few of the little creepy thingies going on, check this out too: CBS News.com. Enjoy!
