New Paranormal Activity 4 Trailer has hit the web-waves and is, as you might expect, racking up the views on YouTube. Well here it is on The Liberal Dead because it’s the new Halloween tradition to see a new Paranormal Activity movie each year much like we used to have a new Saw movie each year and thus the obligatory trailer repost is like trick or treating one… month… early… (this is the second trailer from the film). While my cynical tone may suggest that I am wholly uninterested in this film, I can assure you that I love this series simply for that fact that it keeps normal, non-horror folks hitting up the theaters dropping bills for a HORROR movie during the month of October. It’s too easy to forget that our beloved genre gets boxed out of the box office when it really shouldn’t.
Here’s the trailer and see commentary below it:
You can read about the synopsis on IMDB. Plot points? You know what’s gonna happen right… clever regurgitation of the previous installments and hopefully some kind of reasonable explanation as to what the fuck has been going on in found footage town. You don’t watch these because there are original ideas. You watch them because they’re the haunted house/spook house of cinema. Let’s see when I get scared and hug my significant other who’s hand has almost unzipped my fly.
1. I think the little baby boy from the most recent installment is actually the blond girl now. Think Sleepaway Camp for the modern horror fan. GET READY FOR A JUICY WANG!
2. There’s a scene that will resemble a famous Nightmare on Elm Street bathtub scene. Can anyone say homage or… rip off? (it’s neither to be certain).
3. This flick is going to break the record for the previous films because people know the name and yes, that’s a good thing even if it’s not the best horror flick out there.
4. I will say that I’m going to see it in the theater but will be unable attend due to circumstances beyond my control (fact).
Enjoy this one horror fans. Let us know your thoughts about the new trailer. Let us know your thoughts about the franchise in general.
