Back in June we got our first look at the first trailer for the upcoming sequel film Paranormal Activity 2 … today we learn that folks in the promo department for PA2 have unleashed a new viral video for the film in a very clever way. Here are a few screencaps from this new vid and an explanation from Bloody Disgusting that explains how the video was delivered:
There’s nothing more unsettling than coming home to see a strange package sitting at your door. No postage, just a return address. Opening with caution, inside I discovered a USB flash drive. What would happen when I plugged it into my computer? Was it a virus? Was it a blackmail letter accompanied by a bunch of photos of me gorging myself on peanut butter and Oreos? Nope, it was a viral video that’s clearly from Paramount Pictures’ Paranormal Activity 2 featuring a baby, a girl and a uber-creepy demon/ghost in one single frame. Scanning the video it became obvious to me that there are clues hiding within; so go forth, watch the video, and then post your discoveries below. It’s also worth noting that the return address was 40 University Dr, Rindge, NH 03461 — Franklin Pierce University. Any ideas? The file name was “FMLY4_01-21-58.mov” and the craziness occurs at 01:22:01AM. Maybe that’s a clue?
The clip is very short but it does give us a glimpse at what we can expect when Paranormal Activity 2 hits theaters in just a few weeks. After the jump, check out the vid and see for yourselves …
It appears that while the first film, Paranormal Activity, relied on building suspense this sequel will offer much more scariness in order to keep us interested. I’ve always been freaked out by kids in horror films … I’m thinkin’ this convention is going to be used here in Paranormal 2. I loved the first film, I really hope I will love the follow-up. I know this clip is very short but does it pique your interest? Are you skerred?
