Paranormal Activity was made for a mere $11,000 and shot entirely in the auteur’s suburban home. The film spawned a franchise that has pulled in approximately $577 million worldwide at the box office alone. According to Paramount, Paranormal Activity is probably the most profitable film ever.

Insidious: Chapter 4 will be released in theaters on October 20, 2017 via Universal Pictures. The news is announced in the video above by Lin Shaye, who will reprise her role as parapsychologist Elise Rainier.

Perhaps the biggest piece of information revealed is that Adam Robitel is taking over directorial duties. Like many others, I was highly impressed by his debut, The Taking of Deborah Logan, so I’m interested to see what he brings to this franchise.

Insidious: Chapter 4 will once again by written by series co-creator Leigh Whannell. Jason Blum, Oren Peli, and co-creator James Wan will serve as producers.

Shortly after the massive success of Paranormal Activity, writer/director Oren Peli enter production on a found-footage alien flick, Area 51, in 2009. There were several re-shoots and re-edits, then… nothing.

After years of silence, Paramount and Blumhouse are finally releasing the film on VOD on May 15. It will also be playing in Alamo Drafthouse theaters the same day.

The long delay isn’t exactly encouraging, but that doesn’t always mean the movie is bad (case in point: The Cabin in the Woods). I’m certainly curious to see if Peli is more than a one-hit wonder.

Three young conspiracy theorists attempt to uncover the mysteries of Area 51, the government’s top secret location rumored to have hosted encounters with alien beings. What they find at this hidden facility exposes horrifying, unimaginable secrets. Now you can experience their harrowing adventure in this footage pieced together from documentation of these chilling events.

10 series para comenzar 2012

6.- ’The River

Una de las apuestas fuertes de la ABC para esta temporada es ’The River’, la serie creada por Oren Peli, padre de la saga ’Paranormal Activity’, que intenta reavivar el éxito de la mítica ’Lost’.

El 7 de febrero llegará a las pantallas de Estados Unidos (avalada de nuevo por Steven Spielberg), la primera temporada compuesta de 8 episodios. La serie narra la odisea de una tripulación que se embarca río arriba por la selva amazónica en busca de un conocido explorador televisivo desaparecido en extrañas circunstancias. 

Terror, aventuras, misterio y falso documental, son los géneros que mezcla esta rareza televisiva, en la que el español Jaume Collet Serra (director de ‘La Huerfana y 'La casa de cera’) ha dirigido  los dos primeros episodios. 

No puede tener mejor pinta.

Paranormal Activity 3

Ok, so my friend and I went to the theatre today to see it. It was a disappointment. Sure, it had some nice scenes, and a couple of scares, and the audience screamed like shit and it was fun, but the ending? Seriously. Suddenly the “tape” started glitching and then it turned black and I was hoping for something more. But no, you can’t have that, bitch. The ending credits rolled and I was like “what?”

And the trailer? It made me excited, but then almost 90% of everything in them had magically disappeared in the final cut.
