"Paranormal Activity" is back into the top position on Twitter's trending topics on Wednesday October 7 thanks to a viral marketing campaign crafted by the film's promoters.
Paranormal Activity is a film that draws on a young couple's experience with a demonic 'force' that comes to haunt them at night when they move into a suburban house. The documentary-styled horror film had a limited release on September 25 in the US but is now planing a nationwide release - if fans vote for it.
The campaign asks for people to vote for a nationwide release saying, "Hit 1,000,000 demands and Paranormal Activity will open nation wide".
People on Twitter are asking their friends and followers to ensure the movie makes it out of art-house cinemas and into the mainstream by encouraging them to spread the word and vote on the official site, http://www.paranormalmovie.com.
