Everyone's Doing It!!

My skeptical self thinks the film may be a cleverly marketed one and not much else. From an initially mid-90's-esque, low budget promotional website (now it looks a little more well put together) to online petitions and widget codes to add to blogs and websites, the promotion of Paranormal Activity is unlike anything I've seen (at least in recent memory). In fact, it reminds me of a similar strategy employed by the directors of one Blair Witch Project.

Nonetheless, I am extremely excited to see it (damn you marketing!) tomorrow with a group of friends. A full report will be forthcoming. Until then, here is an article from my hometown of San Diego where, surprisingly, I learned the film was shot.

For those of you not 'in the know', check out the trailer below.

While the marketing may seem shaky, the film is actually really good and deserves a fair shot (keeping hype out of the discussion). I loved it. :) hope you enjoy it when you see it.
