Paramount is hoping they can spin a movie done on the cheap into box office gold once again. The phenomenal success of Paranormal Activity and its sequel has led the studio to pick up The Devil Inside.

Shot on a budget of 75 cents, the supernatural thriller takes on the world of exorcisms. The story centers around a woman who was always told her mother killed three people because she was a crazy bee-yotch. However, when she learns that the killings occurred during an exorcism she begins to investigate several unauthorized exorcisms in Italy. Naturally, she brings a camera crew along. Probably one that’s really good at shaking the camera during tense moments. (THR)

Big, Bad Texas is Too Scared for ‘Paranormal Activity 2′ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/big-bad-texas-is-too-scared-for-paranormal-activity-2/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/big-bad-texas-is-too-scared-for-paranormal-activity-2/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Like everyone else in America, I've always had to endure the boastful claims of the state of Texas. From the "Don't Mess with Texas" slogan to awful Dallas Cowboys fans to the "Steers and Queers" line in Full Metal Jacket, Texans always seem to walk around like their poo-poos don't stink. Well guess what, Tex; you're not so tough after all! Cinemark has pulled the trailer for Paramount's "Paranormal Activity 2" from several theaters in Texas after receiving numerous complaints that the promo was "too" frightening. Well look at the scared little state of Texas pissing itself in the corner over a cheesy horror movie trailer. Pathetic. Why don't you run home to your "Friday Night Lights" and your "Austin City Limits," ya pansies! (Variety)

The trailer for Paranormal Activity 2 has hit the web, and it looks like one scary sonuvabitch, let me tell you!

Actually, the first movie looked scary. Obviously it’s too soon to tell, but based on the trailer, this one just looks like more of the same. When you beat a dead horse, it loses the scary. Unless, of course, the dead horse stands up and starts biting people, like in my new screenplay, Equine Apocalypse.

It reminds me of when I was a child and my little brother scared the hell out of me by banging on my bedroom window at 2:00 am. When he did it every night for the next five years, it wasn’t scary any more, it was just annoying. Wait a minute…I don’t have a little brother! OH MY GOD!

Watch the trailer for Paranormal Activity 2 after the jump.

‘Paranormal Activity 2′ Hires a ‘Saw’ Director http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/paranormal-activity-2-hires-a-saw-director/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/paranormal-activity-2-hires-a-saw-director/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Last year's low-budget horror hit Paranormal Activity has been greenlit for a sequel. But how do you make a sequel to such a stripped-down film who's genius was found in it's simplicity? You hire a director known for their heavy-handed and overwrought filmmaking style.Saw VI's Kevin Greutert has been brought on board by Paramount to water down the scares and crank up the third-tier rap rock. Greutert was editor on all of the Saw movies and apprentice editor on Ernest Scared Stupid so we should be in really capable hands. The movie is scheduled to hit theaters on October 22nd, 2010, which leaves little time. Somebody get a Godsmack cover-band on the phone!! (THR)
