Is it a bad, bad, bad idea?
“Our team will come up with the right creative and marketing approach,” Dauman said.
The man behind the film – which has become the most profitable picture ever – Oren Peli is off to make Area 51 right now. Would he be back for a sequel? Who knows, but I’m sure that dialogue has already begun – you’d be a fool to think it hasn’t.
To be honest, will a sequel work? I’m not alone in pointing to Blair Witch 2: Book of Shadows as a fine example as to why some sequels shouldn’t be born. Paranormal Activity captures the zeitgeist of a generation fixed on shows like Ghost Hunters and does what it does very well. A sequel capturing the haunting of another couple, or family, will only be seen as a carbon copy – that is, if they choose to go that route. I think picking up where the original left off – with Katie – would only be a grave mistake.
Sound off below, is a Paranormal Activity necessary?
