Published

on

“All the activity has led to this…” So reads the one-sheet for Paranormal Activity 4, which hits theatres on October 19th, 2012. It’s amazing how much of a rich mythos has developed around Oren Peli’s original Paranormal Activity film, and on tap for you right now is a look back!

Below you’ll find our exclusive Paranormal Activity Timeline, which we here at Dread Central have put together for your perusal. With it, it’s easy to follow along with the events of the last three films in chronological order as it documents key plot points, explains some mysteries, and even points out some things that you may not have noticed. We intend to further break things down in the future for you guys, but for now click on the image below for a larger look at the Timeline, and click here to download it onto your computer or device.

Major props to Jon Condit for all the hard work he put into this.

WHAT DOES MEUS MEAN?
The word Meus is scratched into the basement door. It means “mine” in Latin. In this case “mine” refers to Hunter, whom the demon seeks to claim as its payment for whatever deal was entered into.

Thaumaturgic Triangle:
The Thaumaturgic Triangle, or Magical Triangle, is a symbol commonly thought to be used to bind or control a summoned demon. MCL is modified from “Mi Cha El,” which calls upon the Archangel Michael for protection from the summoned demon. Given the fact that Lois visited the girls just a few days prior to Dennis finding the markings in the closet, some people theorize that she drew them herself.

DID YOU NOTICE?
On the day Hunter is brought home and Dan takes the camera around the house, two interesting things happen. The first is if you look closely in his office, you can see paintings from Lois’ house in PA3 hanging up which appear again later in the film. The second is when he walks downstairs and remarks that someone left the front door open — we know the door was closed when they all came in the house.

Key Plot Points:

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost Are Truth Seekers Playing by Slaughterhouse Rulez

Published

on

One of our favorite pairings of stars from the last twenty years is no doubt that of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Their chemistry is undeniable, and if you didn’t get enough of it in “Spaced,” Shawn of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End, and Paul, you’re about to get a bellyful of it on both big and small screens.

Variety is reporting that Frost and Pegg will be starring in “Truth Seekers,” a half-hour comedy-horror TV show about a three-person paranormal investigation team.

According to the site, each installment of “Truth Seekers” will focus on a paranormal incident, a setup with clear monster-of-the-week potential. “Each episode is going to be an adventure, a potential haunting or something,” Pegg says. “It’ll start as a very parochial idea, a very small business venture for these people, but it will expand as the series goes on to be something far more global. It’s a language everyone understands, the mystery of the unknown. Shaun of the Dead was a very parochial story set in North London, and somehow it managed to get this global reach because everyone understands the language of zombie movies.

That’s not all, though… the pair are also working on the feature film Slaughterhouse Rulez, a horror-comedy now in post-production. Directed by Crispian Mills and set in a well-to-do public school, the movie is “very satirical, very much about the U.K. selling itself off,” Pegg says. “It’s about fracking as well, and that unleashes some awful subterranean demon.

Both of these projects will be released under their Stolen Picture shingle. Stay tuned, kids! More as we get it!
