I’ve been following the possible nationwide release of the movie Paranormal Activity.
Premise: “Soon after moving into a suburban tract home, Katie (Katie Featherston) and Micah (Micah Sloat) become increasingly disturbed by what appears to be a supernatural presence. Hoping to capture evidence of the haunting on film, Katie and Micah set up video cameras in their home, but they are not prepared for the terrifying occurrences which follow.”
All of the buzz has been about how damn scary it’s supposed to be. Of course I wanted to see it, but it wasn’t playing in Birmingham. Through promotion they set up a site and claimed that if over a million people requested it, it would be shown nationwide. Well, they got their million requests, and it opens everywhere on October 16th. Yay!
I do have one concern though…the entire movie took only 7 days to make, and was done on a budget of $11,000. Sounds very Blair Witchy to me. Yes, I’m still bitter about the whole Blair Witch thing.
