Peli in Area 51

10.06.2009

With Oren Peli's PARANORMAL ACTIVITY poised to be Paramount's new rags-to-riches story, the man has enough clout to get funding for his next single-camera project, AREA 51. The "found footage" story follows a group of teens who sneak onto an Air Force base and witness a secret government cover-up involving well, I don’t want to ruin the surprise, but I’d say the title might be a bit of a giveaway.

The film is being independently financed by Aramid Entertainment Fund and Incentive Filmed Entertainment who are ponying up $5M to Peli. Keep in mind that PARANORMAL cost $11,000, though I suppose they’re going to have to spring for a few shooting permits and rubber alien costumes this time around, which are presumably more expensive than a fan to blow curtains and slam doors shut.

So we’ve seen “found footage” films about witches (BLAIR WITCH), zombies (REC), ghosts (PARANORMAL) and monsters (CLOVERFIELD), I guess it only stands to reason that aliens should be next. Fortunately, most of those films are actually pretty damn good, so here’s to hoping that Area 51 carries on in that tradition.

Extra Tidbit: Out of the four films I just mentioned, which is your favorite? I have to say I really did enjoy CLOVERFIELD more than most.

[Rec} for SURE... followed up by the Blair Witch.. Cloverfield was awesome too of course, and i've been waiting to see Paranormal Actiity every since Arrow ran an article back in like what, 06-07? After that it didn't pop up till this year, which is sad

Long Live The Witch!

I have to say The Blair Witch is my favorite.My kids think it's funny as hell.I think there's something wrong with our kids.
Maybe after I watch Paranormal Activity I'll have a new favorite!

Already been done twice

I didn't see the one mentioned earlier but a little film called "The McPherson Story" scared the living shit out of me a few years back called the McPherson Story...

and as I try to find its IMDB I now realise its exactly the same film,

Why did I continue to write this instead of simply erasing my mistake? I don't know...

But yeah, That film was horrifically scary at the same.

There was a movie, "Incident At Lake County." When I was a kid and saw this for the first time, it burned images into my head. Now when I watch it, the acting isn't as good, but that was a First Person Alien movie!

Definitely REC (or Quarantine, which was a great remake IMO), but so far everything I've heard about PA sounds pretty incredible.

stupid..

why TEENS? how do TEENS breach the security perimeter of a military cover-up?? .. should be footage shot by either a military doctor or officer. .. and even THAT sounds kinda generic.

Sounds interesting, but I have not yet seen Paranormal, so I will wait and decide if this is good or bad then.

Haven't seen "rec" and "Paranormal" but Blairwitch was better than Cloverfield. The movie was Ok but the casting in Cloverfield sucked!
