Paranormal Activity Facebook Fanpage Now Open

And the Paranormal Activity (review here) news just keeps on rolling in. A new fanpage for the film has opened, and it has a really interesting image as its landing photo that sports the words “IN THEATERS SEPTEMBER 25th”. Getting excited yet? I knew you would be.

To join the Paranormal Activity fanpage, simply click on the image below to be transported there and then hit “Join”. There will be lots going on, including the posting of official news and updates, so it’s highly suggested that you do so ASAP.

In the interim make sure you follow @TweetYourScream and wait for the news as to where and when you can see the film to come flowing on in. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to follow @dreadcentral and even @unclecreepy to keep up with my hijinx!

The first confirmed showing will be on September 25th at midnight, when Paranormal Activity will have its first official public showing at Fantastic Fest 2009 in Texas. Get your tickets here.

Synopsis
After a young, middle class couple moves into what seems like a typical suburban “starter” tract house, they become increasingly disturbed by a presence that may or may not be somehow demonic but is certainly most active in the middle of the night. Especially when they sleep. Or try to.

      • Took the time? Yeah, all twenty seconds of it. I used those handy little tags you provide at the top of every article. One click and bingo! Total time elapsed, barely any.

        Of course I care. I thought it was a good movie. I said so in my last post about it. I just think that eight news stories in nine days is a little excessive, no matter what the movie is.

        I’ll hold my tongue if it bothers you.

        • It doesn’t bother me in the slightest but even if it were eight stories in a day we’d still have to cover them all. People will either read it here or elsewhere.

        • It’d be excessive if each post didn’t include brand new information about one of the most anticipated horror releases in recent memory. As it stands, i’ve gained something from clicking on every one of these eight news stories, so i can’t agree with your point here.

          • I see it as part of the twitter effect. Instead of waiting for news to build up into a single full story, we get multiple tweet-style posts throughout the day now. Each post contains one little kernel of info that the post before it didn’t offer. Each post can pretty much be boiled down to a single twitter-like headline: No remake! Facebook fanpage is open! Release plans coming soon to Twitter! That’s three of the eight stories right there.

            It’s a way to create buzz. I get it.

            I’m seeing it more and more lately. Not just on Dread Central, but everywhere. About everything. Just a year ago online news came out at a different pace. It was still very fast, but not like it is today. Now it’s a constant stream of bite-size info nuggets being tweeted and twitted and twatted non-friggin-stop. They remind me of those blipverts from Max Headroom’s show.

            I suppose that’s gonna result in a lot more mini-stories like these appearing throughout the average week. Creepy himself said in one of the recent posts that “there seems to be a new news story about it almost every couple of days.” That’s pretty much exactly what I said, isn’t it? My point is, it wasn’t that long ago that eight news stories in nine days might have been considered a little excessive. Now it’s just average, I guess. Just takes some getting used to, is all. I’ll catch up.
