Last year audiences were thrilled by what some refer to as one of the scariest films they've ever seen. Like it or not, Oren Peli's little movie that could changed ALL of the rules in Hollywood, and the genre has been better for it.
The phone has been ringing off the hook all morning, and sources close to the project have let us know that brave horror fans will be getting their first theatrical glimpse at one of the biggest sequels of the year when The Twilight Saga: Eclipse hits theatres next week.
One of the big questions on fans' minds is whether or not we'll be seeing stars Katie Featherston and/or Micah Sloat reprising their roles somehow when Paranormal Activity 2 hits theatres this October.
The first casting news has just come in for James Wan's Insidious, which is currently lensing under the title The Astral in Los Angeles, and things are looking good!
It's been a rough road for Paramount and the producers of Paranormal Activity 2 toward landing a director for the flick. The originally named Kevin Greutert was recalled by Lionsgate for Saw VII, but it's all paid off as today we know who'll be taking the reins from Oren Peli for the sequel.
There have been a lot of rumors going around as to who's going to be taking up the helm of Paranormal Activity 2 after Lionsgate had scheduled director Kevin Greutert yanked from the project to do Saw VII, and one such name that's been floating around is Akiva Goldsman. The Internet has been alive lately with chatter about him sliding into the director's chair.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. We know. We totally got the shaft Stateside for our Paranormal Activity Blu-ray release (though we're fairly certain a double dip will be coming) as the UK has a mega edition (story here) coming on March 22nd courtesy of Icon Home Entertainment. If we can't have our own set of extras, at least we can watch a bit of theirs on YouTube.
After the mess caused by the yanking of director Kevin Greutert off of the sequel to 2009's mega-hit Paranormal Activity, we've all been left wondering -- who's gonna be steering the ship? The names being thrown about recently are not only promising, they're also a bit shocking!
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!
Aside from waiting for an update on the status of its sequel and rooting for it to win an Independent Spirit Award on March 5th, we honestly haven't been paying too much attention to Paranormal Activity's roll-out across the rest of the globe. But all that changed today with the report that despite being a box office hit in Italy, the film has "kicked up a storm among [Italian] politicians and associations on Monday because it is terrifying teenagers and children across the country." Bravo, Oren!
If Paranormal Activity taught the studios anything, it's that you can do so much more with so much less and in the process still deliver a quality flick! The team behind the phenomenon Paranormal Activity, director Oren Peli and producers Jason Blum and Steven Schneider, are out to do just that with their new deal with Canada's Alliance Films. First order of business?
It's been a while since James Wan got behind the camera for another dark tale of terror and mayhem. Thankfully the wait for his next film is just about over! Get ready for The Further! The film is set to be produced by Jason Blum (Blumhouse Productions), Oren Peli (director of Paranormal Activity) and Steven Schneider (Room 101 Productions).
Ok. Color us speechless. It's no surprise that a sequel to the smash phenom Paranormal Activity is on its way. The movie made millions and dethroned the Saw franchise as October's biggest moneymaker.
There was a really good and spooky time to be had at Jessica DiMeo of Rehoboth, Massachusetts' house this past Monday, as Paramount put on one hell of a screening party in her home. Of course Dread Central was on hand for hosting duties, and now we bring to you our own gallery coverage of the event!
As announced last week Dread Central is hosting the special Paranormal Activity (DVD and Blu-ray review here) screening that's happening for one lucky fan in Massachusetts this evening and throughout the day we'll be posting pics from the event!
