With halloween around the corner , paranormal activity is back with a sequel. The chilling series follows a family being haunted by demon, the movie is shot in a way to make the viewer believe that it is a true story.
The movie releases October 19 so find a hand to squeeze because this one seems just as scary as the last.
What do you think about part 4? Do you think a fourth movie is pushing it? or are you as excited as I am to see what they came up with this time?
Here’s a movie trailer I wrote, shot and edited for a film class at NYIT a couple years ago. It’s for a horror movie. I wanted to do a movie trailer because I think they’re more fun to edit than a regular short film so let me know what you think of it
Fun fact: The little girl in the film is actually my little sister Shannon who actually turned 13 today :p
I’ve never been a huge fan of history. Well I can’t say that really. I am a huge fan of learning and reading about history, but when it comes to film, I like my history far from it. I’ve never seen how someone could watch Saving Private Ryan and truly enjoy it. Sure you feel something cathartic and you enjoy learning about the journey of the characters but how could you let a movie that glorifies war be your favorite movie? I’d say a movie like Schindler’s List can barely hold a candle to 2001: A Space Odyssey. I guess I’ve always just been more imaginative. I desire a lot more than a cheap imitation of history. Don’t even get me started on movies that use September 11th as plot devices (Remember Me, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close) because I don’t know what could be more disrespectful than using a tragedy as a way to fill seats. With all that being said I recently thought it would be awesome to have a whole movie about a real event but completely change the end . I guess that’s sort of like what Ingolorious Basterds did. I think that idea can be really effective and inadvertently hilarious. Well there’s a new movie coming out, based on a book of the same name, that takes a completely real historical figure, Abraham Lincoln, and makes him do something totally outrageous, kill vampires in the name of vengeance for his mother’s death. I can’t think of an idea I’d be more interested in. While this movie will be going up against tons of summer blockbusters with the same, redundant superheroes, I’m sure this movie will get looked over completely. That’s exactly how I like my movies.
