paranormal activity

What "Paranormal Activity" has done for haunted houses is what "Dark Skies" could do for close encounters of the alien kind. At least that's the hope of filmmaker Scott Stewart and producer Jason Blum, the latter of whom produced "Activity" as well as "Insidious".

I am so excited for today's release of Sinister that I feel like stripping down to my boxer shorts, lathering myself up in cocoa butter and running up and down the streets of my neighborhood, pounding on doors and offering encouragement for all that answer to join me at the local theater. Since my lawyer has advised me that would be a foolhardy idea, I'll just give you a rundown of a half dozen other violent ghost stories that kick ass. Why a half dozen? Didn't you ever read Spiderman? The “Sinister Six” arc killed, man.


9. "The Woman in Black

There's a very simple premise behind "Grave Encounters"… take a group of cynical, fraudulent "Ghost Hunters" shooting a terrible reality show, and throw them into a situation where they actually encounter ghosts. It's a format ripe for parody and/or satire, given the dubious nature of most of these shows to begin with. Unfortunately, "Grave Encounters" does little with it beyond the setup, and even worse, adds nothing to the found footage subgenre it so tirelessly apes.

BGH Goes to HorrorHound

This weekend the Bloody Good Horror team will be making its yearly pilgrimage to the Indianapolis Marriott to take in all the "Terminator"-related highs and lows of HorrorHound Weekend 2012.

The trailer for the fourth installment of the "Paranormal Activity" franchise has hit the tubes and once again I have a clenched butthole. It's the same film you've seen 3 times already but this time they use webcams. Maybe I'm a moron but I still get a clenched butthole when I watch this crap. Not to mention the little kid walking around holding Katie's hand looks about the same size as my daughter. So now I don't trust her either. I don't trust anyone.

"Paranormal Activity 4" hits theaters on October 16th.

Wallace Langham always seems sassy to me so that makes him a perfect fit to play the roll of Saul Bass in the upcoming film "Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of 'Psycho.'" I'm not going to tell you what the movie is about because that title might be the most direct thing I've ever read. I also have no idea with Saul Bass was "sassy" in real life but I like to think he was.

Let me get this on paper right now. If the end of the world comes and it looks like I might make it out alive but I'll have to live with Seth Rogan, I want you to just shoot me right in the face. Don't ask me if I really mean it, don't even think about it. Just pull the trigger. Even if Aziz Ansari is there, who's just been added to the cast of "The Apocalypse", an end of the world comedy which stars Ro-Gan. See how I made that happen? But seriously. Shoot me.

Oren Peli and Jason Blum, the producers behind "Paranormal Activity" are currently working on an untitled "Latino-themed" supernatural thriller. Now before we go any further let me point out that my wife is Puerto Rican so nothing I say can be considered racist.The story will focus on a pack of haunted tacos that terrorize a family of migrant workers. They must use the power of salsa to expel the demons and save their home/hut. I'm kidding of course, no details on the film have been released.

"Ender’s Game", the much anticipated adaptation of Orson Scott Card's beloved science fiction novel has had its release date officially pushed to November 1, 2013. I have no idea what the book is about but it sounds like there's tiny little fighter pilots so that's adorable.

Did this film cheat its viewers? The crew takes a look...

"Now, from the producers of those films you mostly enjoy because they're short and there's nothing else to watch on Halloween, comes the thing no one asked for... all three films in the series, edited together in chronological order!" Even as a "Paranormal Activity" fan, I can't imagine who would want to see all three films cut together, "never before seen footage" or not. You'll see me at a three day long "Lord of the Rings" marathon before you see me watching this. It's being used as a promotional tool for the series release on "Bluray" and Digital Download.

Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary!
