If PARANORMAL ACTIVITY Is The New BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, What Does That Make The Sequel?
Oh, Paramount, I wanted to believe you were going to do better than this. I honestly did. But, you know, when you release a teaser for a horror film that declares nothing can prepare me for what's next, then what comes next had better be something more than a woman standing calmly in a doorway. Doing nothing.

Congratulations, Paramount marketing department. You have just created the least frightening horror movie trailer of all time. Sorry to see you're following the Blair Witch template all the way through to the bad sequel.

She eats the baby...

No no no we all do not understand.

That is Sarah Conner. The baby is John Conner. The dog is uhmmm the nephew from Lassie...

I will probably will be alone in this desert shouting, but I didn't really like the first one. I liked the hype, but not the result so much...

"Sorry to see you're following the Blair Witch template all the way through to the bad sequel."

You might consider revisiting the Blair Witch sequel. Divorced from the hype and expectation, it's really a pretty damn good movie. Not perfect at all, but pretty solid.

I don't really care but the imagry in the trailer is freakier than you're saying. The baby in the mirror but not in the room is a pretty good one. Also http://www.dreadcentral.com/news/38309/paranormal-activity-2-whats-the-mirror-we-investigate

I'm sorry, but PA sucked. The acting was terrible, the characterization was embarrassing, the motivations were insulting ("I got this! I'm gonna figure this out! Baby powder, yeah! What!"), the influences were tired and transparent, and please...how many endings did they shoot? And the boyfriend was a misogynist dick. Yeah. Entertainment.

To paraphrase the late Richard Jeni, watching PA was like being slapped in the face for 90 minutes.
