The success of Paranormal Activity was bound to change a lot of things. Who knew it would even lead to the change in film title for Mel House’s Walking Distance?
According to The Hollywood Reporter Mel House’s indie horror movie Walking Distance, which is currently in post-production, has undergone a title change to Experimental Activity, due in part we’re sure to the fact that one of its actors, Katie Featherston, is now exploding thanks to Paranormal Activity.
Showcase Entertainment has acquired international rights to Experimental Activity, which revolves around a small town that is subject to a government medical experiment.
“Clearly having the fastest-rising star in the business is a feather in the cap, but we feel the film stands on its own as a cool psychological thriller,” Showcase president David Jackson said.
Sigh. Yay Hollywood. The film also stars genre favorites Adrienne King, Reggie Bannister, Debbie Rochon, and also Glenn Morshower of “24” fame.

An idyllic, small, self-sufficient community. On the surface, it seems like the perfect neighborhood. Everything you could possibly need is within walking distance. But… the pastoral exterior conceals a dark past and an even darker secret. As a group of individuals – each with their own ties and agendas with the town and each other – converges on the enclave, strange things begin to happen. Very strange things. Strange enough to test – and then break – the very fabric of reality itself.
