Paranormal wants you!

10.06.2009

So are you really itching to to see PARANORMAL ACTIVITY?

If you're ready to see Oren Peli's terrifying debut, you can demand it. That's right. Paramount needs help if you want to see the film go nationwide. The current number of demands so far are close to 400,000. They need to reach one million in order to give it the wide release treatment.

You and I both know that they will hit their goal, but if you want to see it at your local theater, go here to contribute. There's really no denying that there's a definite buzz around the movie. As I've said before, people like a good scary story that hits close to home. This movie displays that very literally.

It's a good idea on the movie and Paramount's part. There are several films that come out in limited release that people didn't get the chance to see. For example, I want to see 500 DAYS OF SUMMER, but can't because the only theater that's playing it is an hour away. Needless to say, life gets busy and it's a pain in the ass to drive that far.

Of the limited theaters that the film has been released in all of them have sold out. So maybe we should demand it so we can see what all the fuss is about.

Extra Tidbit: I'm not trying to market anything to you guys by the way. I know you have a slight issue with that. I just know that it's annoying when you live in a small town that never plays any diverse movies.

lulz @ negative ratings on my comment. Keep crying that I don't find myself impressed by trailers of poor video night vision of some people sleeping mixed with idiots in an audience gaping their mouths while scary music plays.

Okay, it's playing a car rie away from me starting Friday. Saying that, more like typing that, let's drop this silly demand it experiment. It never was about this feature, it was about internet buzz that spread like wildfire and took on a life of it's own, this demand it nonsense is just getting in the way of the proceedings at this point. Okay, i get it, when a vid on Yt hits 1 mil, its considered viral, hence they want to hit that milestone, can i say something, Paramount, the fekkin thing is

It never was about this feature, it was about internet buzz that spread like wildfire and took on a life of it's own, this demand it nonsense is just getting in the way of the proceedings at this point. Okay, i get it, when a vid on Yt hits 1 mil, its considered viral, hence they want to hit that milestone, can i say something, Paramount, the fekkin thing is already viral without 1 mil in demands. It sold out and would have made even more money if it wasn't limited to a time when most college kids are tripping out pontificating about the universe( and about how they can bonk the hottest chick in Transgender studies, a chick everyone with a pulse wants).

Let's drop this charade, go wide before you run up against a franchise that is 4 films into " they should have stopped at two". Or, be my guest, take your chances and go wide on the same weekend, but please stop patronizing us with this demand it nonsense. Anyone i the know is aware that this is something special, we don;t need anymore convincing, stop playing willy tease with us and get in touch with the theaters to start making this film available to a true wider audience.

If you keep this up, people will simply get pissed and you'll miss out on your mega payday, you already made a jillion times the budget, but if you want that Blair box office experience, stop pussyfooting around. The fekkin thing is on digital video, there has to be plenty of copies floating around and if there isn't, it won't be hard to make them. At the very least distribute it to theaters that won;t require it to be converted to 35mm.


Play your little game one more weekend, then unleash the hype on the masses the weekend after.

ps- you run the risk of spoilers being exposed to the masses if you wait too long.

Horseshit

Holding a flick hostage for blackmail "demands" after having the flick sitting on the shelf for a year... yea, great ploy jackasses. Join the movement, and refuse to give Paramount money for this flick. Don't pay to see it at the theater, or buy the DVD. Download it and give the proverbial finger to Paramount/Dreamworks. The filmmakers made their coin, so don't feel bad for them about it... just feel bad their film in being held captive by a dick corporation.
