It seems that the formidable Paranormal Activity franchise is making isn’t going away anytime soon (sigh), and it looks like to our misfortune that a third (and lets hope final) Paranormal is on the way — and here to reinforce that fact is the first teaser poster for the film! A few months back (i.e last year) we passed on the news that Paramount, the company behind the last two films, would be releasing another film in the franchise.
Lucky for us there hasn’t been any mention of 3D…yet, but its most likely the third film will not be in 3D — which will break the recent trend of 3D sequelizations. Seeing as Paramount likes to impose reasonably low budgets on the Paranormal films, a 3D conversion seems unlikely — and to be honest a 3D sequel probably wouldn’t cater for the shaky camera effect in this case.
According to sources PA3 is due to hit cinemas in October (US), and sometime after for other countries. So check out the teaser poster below, and as always enjoy!

Since one of the biggest sub-genre pretty much wrapped it self up this year, refearing to ofcourse the Saw franchise, room has been left for another more mentally demanding horror franchise to make a bid for the top spot and it ain’t Twilight: Breaking Dawn….
I’ll give you a clue, it shocked audiences over the ages of 13 and upwards last year and just recently brought out an terrifingly brilliant sequel worldwide just two months ago, and will be following the tradition of any marjoinally successfull horror franchise would do and come out with another sequel. Yeah thats right, get ready for Paranormal Activity 3!
The second fake found-footage film in the already-shaping up nicely franchise opened against Saw 3D this Halloween and despite that did surprisingly well, not that a sequel was ever in doubt. Now Dread Central confirms that PA3 is in fact in the works and that a release has been set for October 21st of next year, right before halloween time! So for fans and horror-fanatics alike, get ready ‘cus no-longer will Saw have its hold on audiences — surrender to the new super power, Paranormal power.
So not only will they be taking over the Saw franchise entirely but it will also be filling the release slot! And judging by the amount of horror fan-boys out there I don’t think they will tell the difference! So thats it from me and PA3, stay tuned for more info as it comes!

With movies out there like Paranormal Activity and Blair Witch, we know what can be produced through little money and a huge effort. And now we are coming up into a cinematic war-zone with three key Horror players popping up this year — we have Wes Craven‘s My Soul To Take, Paranormal Activity 2 and now Monsters!
Which Plot is thus: Six years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon re-entry over Central America. Soon after, new life form began to appear and half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain “the creatures”…… Our story begins when a US journalist agrees to escort a shaken tourist through the infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border.
Which sounds bloody fantastic or what!! Not to flashy and not to much CG and your off, but what makers have to realize if they want to compete with the power of Wes Craven and well….the paranormal it’d have to be bloody scary! Check out the vid embedded below, Enjoy.
Huh this has to be one of the richest bit of news in a while, after the release of the Paranormal Activity 2 trailer aired this week right before Twilight: Eclipse news that it had been swiftly banned from the state of California in the states for being too scary. Deadline reports that Cinemark (a cinema) executives had a chat with Paramount about pulling the trailer from several of its cinemas.
Just a couple of days ago we posted on the release of Paranormal Activity 2‘s trailer, so if you haven’t seen it then nows the time. But I think this is ludicrous, and personally I could hardly watch the first PA movie but think that the trailer itself isn’t actually that scary. Should they be allowed to do this?
Paranormal Activity was of course one of the scariest films ever, harnessing lighting and its shaky camera shooting style. Also a very tension building film, it relates to its predecessor Blair Witch Project which coined the shaky camera genre in 1999. And now we have some softies telling us that we can’t see a horror movies trailer simply because it does what any good horror film should do — excuse the crudity but make you want to crap your pants.
What do you think about banning a horror films trailer for being simply too scary?
Post your comments below =)
Here it is, the trailer for the sequel to one of the best shakey-camera horror films ever aside from Blair Witch Project (whichIi couldn’t watch without my fingers in my ears!) and I’m here to tell you it’s gonna want to make you scream — so don’t watch alone…or at night. Whats funny though is that this was screened before Twilight Eclipse right in front of hundreds of 13 year old girls…..classic. So prepare for an epic shit-your-pants moment if your going to see it.
And for your comfort you can watch it right here! Below 🙂
