Paranormal Activity Getting A Sequel?!

| Filed under: Film Flickers

paranormal_poster__opt1.jpg

It scared the pants off of people all weekend, so we wouldn't put it past the studio to go for round two!

Paranormal Activity may be getting a sequel, say the people over at Paramount. The studio says they are "exploring" all options.

The little $15,000 movie that could, made $67 million domestically this weekend, making it quite possibly the most profitable movie in Paramount history!

Damn!

So it seems stupid not to try for that same success again! Question is, can they do any better than the original?

Would U want to see a sequel?

    Id rather not sit through another hour and a half of shaky camera movement and boring monologues along with cheesy camera tricks to look like the wigi board was moving on its own. Worst movie of the year. A Haunting on discovery channel is scarier than that pile of crap movie!



  2. 2

    Bad idea, bad idea, BAD IDEA!!! It's like the idea they had to remake it with a big budget.



  3. 3

    i havent seen this movie any good??? all my friends tell me it was great but doesn't need a sequel!! i hope it wont b like blair witch 2!!!

    Re: Jesska244 – I HATE the hauntings on Discovery channel THEY ARE SO SCARY!!!

    It will NOT do as well. They suckered everyone (including myself) into believing this movie was going to be great and the scariest movie ever. It WASN'T is WAS LAME! They won't get my money twice. I'm sure alot of people agree.



  6. 6

    I saw it last night and it wasnt that scary! I dont see why anyone would run out of the theater because they couldnt handle it. It was good but very exagerated in my opinion.



  7. 7

    It did not make 67 million just this weekend. It made 21 million this weekend. The other 46 million has been since mid September. It does not matter if the a squeal would do just has good or better. They will ruin the allure of it by over producing it and giving it a multimillion budget. So it will never be has successful because the profit margin can never be has big.

    I saw this movie yesterday, and last night honestly, everytime something moved I started freaking out. I kept my boyfriend up alllllll night. I believe it's honestly the scariest movie I have ever seen, probably because it wasn't flashy, nonsensical, nor over the top. You related to the characters, and their emotions. I hope they can make a sequel that's as good as the first, however, I'm probably going to pass because unlike everyone else I know, I like my sleep.

    They sure as hell couldn't do WORSE than the original. Ooo, scary, she's standing by the bed all night! OMG, the door shut! *eyeroll*

    that was an AWESOMe movie! totally realistic the way they filmed it with two "everyday" people in their own house. Suspenseful, but only truly scary at parts. 10/10 for me



  11. 11

    This has epic fail written all over it. God, Hollywood is so greedy.



  12. 12

    Re: Jesska244 – That show scares the crap out of me.



  13. 13

    Crap movie. Watched it online yesterday…thank God I didn't waste my money. It's not scary at all. There are a few parts that make you jump…not cause your scared but only because there is a loud unexpected noise.

    A lot of people got suckered in by the hype in with the commercial and the limited release in only certain cities and only midnight showings.

    There really has not been a good scary movie in a while. This one was too bland, most are too over the top.

    This movie sucked!



  17. 17

    Bad idea. They're going to try and make it bigger budgeted instead of sticking with the gonzo filming style.

    Can't wait it though because those movies with the shakey camera's make me motion sick just a First Persona Shooter game.

    i havent seen the movie yet! but im going to see it tomr ! sooo dont ruin it for me ! and if its as horrible as everyone is saying .. why would it have made $67 million dollars!



  19. 19

    This movie was LAME! They over hyped it! And people will know better than to waste their money on the 2nd one…



  20. 20

    Re: .t.z. – Because it was WAY over hyped in order to get people to go see it…it wasn't a great movie



  21. 21

    Honestly I don't know what all big hype about this movie was, saying it was the scariest movie of all times…I think NOT!
    I'm a hardcore horror movie fan, and I did not find this horrifying. I'll admit it was creepy and suspensful at times but not "SCARY" to me anyways. I was laughing for most of it.
    If you want a real horror movie try Children of the Corn or Candyman (the whole series is good)



  22. 22

    I watched it online and started forwarding it to the parts that I guess were supposed to be scary. *YAWN*
    This movie is good for teenyboppers that screech at everything, but in my opinion, Ghost Hunters is scarier than this movie.



  23. 23

    the movie was lame - stupid. Not scary… just more porno for stupid ghost-hunter show addicts. Bunch of idiots I wtched it online for free. Take that, directors and ugly butter face actress!



  24. 24

    NO NO NO NO NO!!! no sequels pleaseeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  25. 25

    that movie wasn't even scary. hell go for a sequel mayb it'll be better



  26. 26

    u guys r all stupid i hope a ghost fucks with u at night, but after that ull still say ur not scared cuz ur an idiot



  27. 27

    That movie scared the PANTS OFF ME, which is unusual since I find 99.9% of 'scary movies' totally laughable. I'd watch the sequel. I couldn't even go to the bathroom by myself after this movie.



  28. 28

    I saw the movie this weekend and it sucked. It was pure bordom, my husband almost fell asleep. I jumped 1 time and it was at the very end.
    The entire thing was a snooze fest, it was so hyped up and disappointment was epic.
    I get more freaked out watching Ghost Hunters people.



  29. 29

    i saw the preview on youtube and thought "oh my god, this is gonna be scary" and actually demanded to have it played in my city. What a waste of $8. The acting was horrible! the main girl drove me crazy through the whole movie. it was 2 hours of bad acting. the only time i was actually somewhat scared was towards the end. i wasted 2 hours of my life on this film. i felt horrible that i actually suggested this to my friends. i spent the rest of the night appologizin for my horrible recommendation. a sequel would never do as good as the first because they arent gonna doop me or i think anyone else again,



  30. 30

    no, the first one sucked.



  31. 31

    Ugh, the movie wasn't scary at all. It was creepy at best and seriously, anyone who was scared by this movie needs to get out more.

    As for a sequal, so long as they don't try to hollywood-ise it. Maybe make it a documentary kind of thing w/ ghost hunters or something *shrugs* Even still, that doesn't sound too great.



  32. 32

    I just can't possibly understand why some people feel like they HAVE to hate this movie. Do you just have to keep telling yourself and other people that in order to not be scared? Fact of the matter, it is a SCARY CREEPY movie. It doesn't matter who you are. The sound was great! The effects were NOT cheesy. It will make you scared to go to bed. It's also a good movie for any aspiring film-makers to watch. —NO sequel please.



  33. 33

    Re: msgirl6 – Nope. It simply wasn't scary. My children watched it online with me, and weren't scared in the least. It was too drawn out. The effects weren't bad… they were almost nonexistent. The fact is, most of the plot revolved around the girl whining, "Micah! Wait!" and him in turn screaming at the air. It is ludicrous to say that this movie was horrifying, unless you are talking about the fact that there are actually people who buy into the hype.



  34. 34

    PLEASE don't waste the time and money it would take to make a sequel to this shiteous movie.



  35. 35

    Good moviee
    you guyss are stupidd.
    sure it was a littlee boring at firstt but eventuallyyy it got better
    im pretty sure it couldntt have been any worse then the original..
    so i say hell yeahh! we needd a sequel!!



  36. 36

    YOU GUYS THINK THE MOVIE WAS "LAME" YET YOU ALL STILL WATCHED IT AND THE MOVIE MADE PROFIT OFF YOU HATERS. THE MOVIE CREW DOESN'T CARE WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY. THEY ALREADY TOOK YOUR MONEY. HAHA! PERSONALLY, I LOVED IT. JUST BECAUSE YOU LOST $9 DOESN'T MEAN YOU HAVE TO WHINE ABOUT IT. GET OVER IT!



  37. 37

    um yes!



  38. 38

    NOOO the first one was fuckin horrible.

    I watched this movie on line, I'm glad I didn't waste money going to the theater. I thought it was poor acted, boring and stupid. Not in the least bit scary. Maybe you had to see it on the big screen? I maybe thought it was good in a couple of places but the actress who played it with all her stupid "Mika"'s drove me nuts. OK, we get it her boyfriends name is Mika. Would not watch a sequel, nope won't fool me twice.



  40. 40

    This movie was a joke!



  41. 41

    The movie had its creepy moments but I did not find it scary in the least.



  42. 42

    Kate Gosselin is going to star in the sequel.



  43. 43

    this movie was not scary at all. I am surprised its doing as well as it is, I guess since they don't say what the movie goers thought once they leave people are still under the impression it's good!



  44. 44

    This was the worst movie I have EVER seen!!! It was not even remotely scary. What a waste of $11.



  45. 45

    Re: ShutUpTwidiot – I'm all for downloading things and watching them for free, but there are just some movies that are better when watched in the theater. This was one of them. It was a fun experience. So, I can understand how it might have lost something there. Yes, it was a little slow at times…it was a MOCKUMENTARY…there aren't things CONSTANTLY happening. There are no big Hollywood effects. Anyway, I guess these kinds of movies are just not for everyone and there will always be people that hate them.



  46. 46

    it was really scary but i dont think a squel will be good.



  47. 47

    Why the fuck does every film that garners some success feel the need to make a sequel? Just be happy with the first one! Are sequels ever really just as good as the first? Rarely!!



  48. 48

    I DONT FUCKING GET IT?!
    it wasnt scary at all, just creepy at some times.
    they shouldnt make a sequel. please.



  49. 49

    I went to see the movie. It is FAKE - "based" on true events. Just like Blair Witch, and JUST as bad if not WORSE! Who comes up with this shit? PEREZ WILL YOU MARRY ME!



  50. 50

    This movie sucked. It was over-hyped. Lame effects. Most of the movie was boring dialogue and shots of her ass going up the stairs. Waste of my money.



  51. 51

    ask yourself if you ever watched blair witch 2. the answer is clear.

    SPOILER ALERT SORT OF: So over-rated. I had a hard time getting in that place to be scared because of all the laughter in the audience. One shot made me jump, it comes at the end, and I can't believe they are spoiling it by using it in ads. No sequel please. Blair Witch made some money but only 1/5 of the take of the original. So not necessary.



  53. 53

    nope…the movie sucked!!!



  54. 54

    Worst movie of all time. I'm ashamed I went to see it. A sequel won't work because the first one didn't. What DID work was the marketing plan, that should win an award.



  55. 55

    Re: .t.z. – becasue people for the most part are followers. they are like sheep. if the media say something is scary then most people will believe it is scary, even if it isnt. then the sheep jump on the bandwagon to see what everyone is talking about.that is how a movie like this can make 67 million dollors. i decided not to see it because i believe the few people who say that it sucks. i saw blair witch many years ago and hated it. i was pissed at myself for being a follower and spending well earned money on a crappy movie. wont make the mistake again.



  56. 56

    NO NO NO! Why do they always ruin things with a sequel? Ugh…. The sequel will suck and we all know it!



  57. 57

    HELL TO THE YES!!! MAKE A SEQUAL PLEASE!



  58. 58

    I just saw this movie and it's stupid as hell. It wasn't scary at all. I really don't get what all the hype was about. The commercials showed people freaking out in the theaters because they were so scared. I don't get it.



  59. 59

    Re: AlmostFamous – hey. fuck you.



  60. 60

    this movie suckeddd! the last five minutes were ok. otherwise it makes u dizzy and boreddd! i wanted a refund



  61. 61

    …..What the hell would the sequel be about??? *SPOILER ALERT** He died in the end for Gods sake!



  62. 62

    This film was the biggest heap of shit that i have ever come across in my life!
    I will never be able to get that 90 mins of my life back!
    If they decide to make a sequel, someone shud be shot with balls of their own shit!
