Film trailer: 'Paranormal Activity 2'
Monday 04 October 2010
Last year's horror film sensation
Paranormal Activity, an ultra-low-budget production that gained its audience thanks to an online campaign to widen the release, has a sequel that is being readied for release this month in time for Halloween.
Released October 3, the second trailer for Paranormal Activity 2, featuring the return of Katie Featherstone, reveals more details about the otherwise secretive storyline.
Opening with footage from the first film, a series of quick cuts from the second installment establishes that a home has been broken into and a security system installed. With a similar camcorder shooting style as last year's hit, it shows doors mysteriously shutting, lights flickering and spooky phenomena happening.
Supernatural forces escalate with images of the dog growling at something invisible and the baby moving around on its own. An attitude about an "awesome" ghost turns to hysterics.
The original film's budget of reportedly $7,000 was raised to $2.7 million for the sequel, which is directed by Kip Williams ( A Door in the Floor) with the original director, Oren Peli, producing.
Paranormal Activity 2 releases across North America on October 22 at midnight. It also opens in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, select European and Scandinavian countries, and Ireland that weekend.
