Horror Flick Counts On Web To Ensure Release

Paranormal Activity

It's October, and that means Halloween. And Halloween means horror films. One of the most innovative and spooky horror movies I've seen in a long, long time is indie flick Paranormal Activity. I'm a bit of a connoisseur of horror movies, and I caught the ultra-low budget PA when it was making the film festival rounds last year. I was immediately struck by the movie's Blair Witch verite style and slow-creep pacing. It tells the story of a young couple's descent into suburban terror by combining the best of "new," meta film-making technique with the best of old-school horror craftsmanship. Seriously: Big ups to Paranormal Activity. 

What I'm saying is I like this movie a lot. And I think you should see it. I was worried that when Paramount bought the rights to it, the plan was to re-make the movie with a "name" cast, throw in a bunch of CGI and a "Hollywood approved" backstory and release it, while ignoring the source material because it's too "rough."  But Paramount has instead decided to put out Paranormal Activity in its original DIY glory, but only if there's enough demand. That's where you come in...

Here's the call to action: Go to this link and demand the movie be shown. If over a million people want to see it, Paramount promises it will put the movie out wide and give everyone a chance to check it out. It costs nothing and is really a vote for good horror! So don't sleep. Join the over half a million internet people who want to see this movie!
