Mark your calendars, UK fans, as Oren Peli’s love-it-or-hate-it spookfest Paranormal Activity will be ready to make you very uncomfortable in your own home on March 22nd courtesy of Icon Home Entertainment. Even better is that both the Blu-ray and DVD editions will be sporting some UK EXCLUSIVE special features!
After Micah (Micah Sloat) and Katie (Katie Featherston), a young, middle class couple move into what seems like a typical suburban “starter” 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 are fast asleep. The presence seems most concerned with Katie, a student who has felt “haunted” her whole life.
Her boyfriend, a day-trader, becomes fixated on learning as much as he can about the phenomenon. Technologically savvy and a lover of toys, Micah spends a few thousand dollars on a high-definition video camera and sets it up at the foot of their bed, creating at once the most intimate of tableaux and an evidentiary medium.
The arrival of Micah’s new toy seems to trigger an escalation of paranormal activity, causing Katie to observe that the presence “doesn’t like it.” As the video tape rolls, Katie becomes increasingly distant while Micah’s fascination grows into obsession.
The sure-to-be-coveted exclusive extras on this release include:
Between this and the upcoming Triangle release we told you about here, I can picture a lot of jealous faces across the pond! If you’re considering the import, be warned – you’ll need a multi-region player as the DVD is locked to Region 2 and the Blu-ray is Region B.
