Paranormal Activity 2 Viral Clips & Demand It Contest [Update]

Paranormal Activity 2 teaser Easter Egg 3 Paranormal Activity 2 Viral Clips & Demand It Contest  [Update]

[Update: Thanks to reader "liftedhearts" for pointing us toward more viral clips!]

The filmmakers behind Paranormal Activity 2 have been playing things close to the vest when it comes to revealing what lies in store for moviegoers this October.

Based on what little we learned from the Paranormal Activity 2 trailer, the sequel to last year’s hugely successful micro-budget movie will once again be shot in home video style, will once again feature “creaky house” scares and the idea of demonic possession.

Beyond those obvious plot points, little is known about what, exactly, Paranormal Activity 2 will be about. Of course, the filmmakers are clearly hoping that the mystery surrounding the film combined with the name recognition and the promise of a few good scares are exactly the right bait to hook viewers into showing up in theaters. And I have to admit, so far they’re not doing a half-bad job.

Today brings some new viral clips for Paranormal Activity 2, which build on the scant few details offered by the first trailer. Leaked to the press hounds currently enjoying the genre film convention Fantastic Fest, one viral clip features the seemingly imperiled baby wandering the house alone, another features the dutiful K-9 in the nursery seated next to an ominous mirror, and the third shows that baby getting into some actual peril.

Check out the clips below:

What I’m liking about this sequel (so far) is that the filmmakers – director Tod Williams and writers Micheal R. Perry and Chris Landon – are building well on the universe created by Paranormal Activity director Oren Peli, by adding certain devices which are usually horror movie gold when employed effectively: imperiled babies, animals and mirrors. And though it’s only speculation at this point, the quick-cut footage in the trailers and these viral clips suggest that Paranormal Activity 2 might also include demonic Katie as its returning monster – also not a bad thing to have in successful horror franchise (an iconic villain).

People are still split over Paranormal Activity, but I’m betting that enough people love this franchise and will be intrigued enough by this latest chapter to make the movie a successful venture. Especially if the studio once again kept the production budget on the cheap side – easy money to be made, and we might even get an enjoyable film, to boot.

  1. So yeah, I’ll be checking this out. I saw the first one and I liked it. The second one doesn’t look like crap so I’ll check it out

    • Omg, me too!!!

  2. Ill see this without a doubt :)

  3. There are at least two more clips out that I saw online that aren’t on here. One, which I saw this morning, is from a camera set at a stairway with a stroller sitting next to it. The baby is crawling down the stairs backward, and the video goes static and cuts away to the ghostly figure that looks like it’s dancing. Only in this one, the figure is moving around the baby. Pretty chilling. What’s interesting about this one is that the picture of the couple from the first movie (the one that got smashed) is on the wall of the stairway.

    Another clip I saw was of living room. It’s empty, then suddenly, a light outside comes on and the ghostly figure (presumably Katie) appears outside the sliding glass door. There’s some more shaky footage of her outside the kitchen window.

    Here’s what I think: The mother of the baby is a friend of Katie. I’m curious….does anyone remember the couple mention a pregnant friend in the first movie? Or perhaps the friend who appeared in the first movie has the baby after Katie disappears? Just a thought…

    • from majority of speculation, it appears the mom is katies sister hence her havin a pic of katie and micah in the house. it makes sense

  4. What website do you go to see these other 2 trailors

  5. I just found another one of the pool here: http://chud.com/articles/articles/25500/1/EXCLUSIVE-CLIP-PARANORMAL-ACTIVITY-2-A-BABY-AND-A-POOL/Page1.html

    Here’s the one of the stairway: http://www.movieviral.com/2010/09/27/4-new-viral-clips-for-paranormal-activity-2/

    Still looking for the one of the living room/patio. Can’t find it!

    • @liftedhearts

      Thanks for the links – we’ve updated the article and gave you a shout out!

  6. @liftedhearts
    That clip messed me up. It looked like the apparition took the dog. Seriously scary.

  7. i liked paranormal activity.i do`t think it needs a sequal.not every movie needs to be a franchise product.

    some movies are perfict as stand alone movies.remember that concept?paranormal activity is one of those.

  8. Thanks all. I still can’t find the one of the woman (Katie?) standing outside the patio and kitchen window. It appeared online the other day and apparently vanished. Given the energy the studio is expending to get a viral campaign going, maybe this movie should be re-named “Paramount Activity?” Bwaaah!

  9. I found the other one of Katie on the patio and in the window. Yay! http://www.dailyblam.com/news/2010/09/26/paranormal-activity-2-viral-videos-may-contain-clues-films-plot?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter
