The producers behind the Paranormal Activity franchise have created a lucrative money-making machine based solely on giving us faux found footage of ghosts making various bits of technology go glitchy every October. The first trailer for directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman’s next installment in the series revealed a film that was going to inch along the loose story Paranormal Activity has been telling, that was going to stick to its web cam shots of flickering lights aesthetic, and that was going to add video chatting to the mix of technological things that ghosts like to mess with.

Well, there’s plenty of time before Paranormal Activity 4s October 21 release, so the studio has saw fit to put out a second preview for the film, and this one adds yet another high tech gadget to the spine-chilling mix. Gasp in white-knuckled terror as you take in the horrific results of just what happens when ghostly spirits take over the operations of your living room’s Xbox Kinect. Oh, the humanity!

Okay, to be fair, the Xbox isn’t the only scare this new trailer gives away. There is also death by chandelier and levitating body sequences that look to be new as well. By now you already know how you feel about the Paranormal Activity movies, so enjoy. Or don’t enjoy. Your choice. [Apple]
