Just Out - Paranormal Activity 2 Trailer, Plus Some Festival Updates

Let's just start this post off with the hottest trailer that's been uploaded in the last 24 hours... the trailer for "Paranormal Activity 2". Be among the first to check it out...

I have no idea of what direction they're going with the actual film, but I really like the way they've kept with the 'found footage' theme for the trailer by incorporating what looks to be surveilance camera footage. I was ready to get all negative, but I do like what they did... having said that, let's see how the movie turns out.

Anyhow, to the point of today's post, what's getting embarassing is how poorly I've maintained the film festival section of the site. I'm always preaching about how important the festivals are, yet I don't update that portion of the site. Ironic, maybe. Embarassing, definitely. So, each week, for a while, I'm going to pick a festival, talk a bit about it, then update their listing in the festivals section. Today, I'll do two, Shriekfest and Fright Night Film Fest.

It's the final call for entries for the 10th Annual Shriekfest Film Festival, which is being held in L.A. from September 30th - October 3rd. Shriekfest will accept shorts, features, screenplays and more, just head over to their site to read all about it. The main goal of Shriekfest is to help support indie film, indie filmmakers and screenwriters in the horror/thriller/scifi/fantasy genres and, for that, we salute them.

This is the 6th Annual Fright Night Film Fest, which takes place in Louisville, KY. They're doing some big things and have some great guests, including: Roger Corman, Tyler Mane, a Fright Night reunion, a Dawn of the Dead reunion, Night of the Creeps... unfortunately, the deadline for film submissions has passed, but they doesn't mean you can't attend. Also, we're going to be doing an interview with Ken Daniels, the director of the fest, soon. So, look out for that.

When I first checked the trailer for Paranormal 2, I didn't really think about it much. I just watched it. However, there's been a lot of buzz about easter eggs and hidden stuff. Clearly, the dog is gone when she arrives. Also, if you freeze it where she's in the door... there's no baby in the crib on the right, but there's clearly a baby in the crib in the reflection. Right? Or am I seeing things? Now I've watched it a few times... is this just good marketing or are fans going overboard?

Hi, Merely came back here to advise you regarding Mobile Monopoly. This is a great technique and WILL make you money, especially seeing as you own a web site. Take a quick look at their video, the system is about using Mobile Advertising which is completely new and an unexposed marketplace where you can make thousands by doing hardly any work. I promise you that after you watch their short video it will change you and it will start making you think.

almost hard to argue with you (not that I personally would want to…HaHa).
You certainly put a fresh spin on a topic that's been written about for decades. Wonderful stuff, just great!

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is important and all. But imagine if you added some great pictures or videos
to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but
with images and videos, this site could certainly be one of the greatest in its field.

Amazing blog!
