Paramount Home Entertainment has announced Paranormal Activity 2 for Blu-ray release on February 8, 2011, in a BD/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack. This "chillingly realistic" prequel to 2009's sleeper hit Paranormal Activity will be presented both in its original theatrical version and in an extended, unrated version that was "too intense for theaters."
"Too intense for theaters"? Yeah, people weren't ready for another 5 minutes. I hope it is more than that, though. I need to re watch since I only saw a cam version, but I'll check this out before I buy it.
'based on true events' is a lot different than 'based on a true story'. Events mean that, events, could be many experiences rolled into one story, where as 'true story' means just one story with little variance in events. weird huh? lol
"Based on true events" is just a marketing lie. I know saying that is supposed to make 13 year old girls more frightened, but nothing in these movies has ever happened in the real world. There's no sense in being dishonest about it or insulting your audience; just say your movie is make believe.
This is a prequel with a timeline that leads up to the 1st movie and shows what happens after the 1st movie ends. It "wrapped up" questions you had on the 1st movie and opens the door for a 3rd movie. I enjoyed both movies and thought this was better than the 1st.
OMG! THE BEST MOVIE OF ALL TIME! IT BLOWS AWAY The Shining, The Exorcist, Black Swan, Jaws...etc
Seriously guys: this movie was in theaters? Come on! It was obviously just a way to make a few extra bucks because of the first film's successful MARKETING advert. Notice I didnt say "the success of the first film". The first film is not known for being great. It's known for two things:
1) The marketing campaign (ala Blaire Witch)
2) Spielberg helped with the ending.
