Paranormal Activity 2

Last year Paranormal Activity proved to be the little engine that could, going from a $15,000 indie about to be dumped to DVD and possibly remade to a $107 million domestic box office powerhouse.  If we’re talking return on investment, it doesn’t get much better than that.

It should come as no surprise then that Paranormal Activity 2 has been advancing rather quickly and now we’ve got a teaser trailer to show you.  So have a look.

So exciting, right? Well. Sort of. Considering 40% of the trailer is audience reaction to the first film and 30% is parts of the first film, we only get a little new footage. But honestly, I kind of dig what we get to see.  First up, we’ve got a baby in the mix for instant creepy and a German Shepherd dog.  That’s what a few extra thousand dollars will get you.

It will also get you a little something special in the last frame – take note of the mirror.  First and most obviously we can see the reflection of the baby – but there is no baby in the room!  Also take note of the writing in the mirror, which I took the time to decipher for you. It reads: What is happening to hunter? A safe bet would be that Hunter is the child. Perhaps the demon has its sights set on a little baby body? I’m pretty sure that’s a crime.

Either way, it looks like we’re in for more of the same. I can almost guarantee this flick doesn’t perform as well as its predecessor, but it looks like it might add just enough spice to make it worth a watch.
