How is it scary? It's just some random images.

I'm not convinced this movie needed a sequel. Of course, that doesn't mean anything to Hollywood, as they'll try to wring every last dollar out of any idea that might conceivably make a buck. Blair Witch 2, anyone?

Apparently, people are easily frightened by...stuff.

Maybe I could make a few million by putting them in front of a blank screen and flashing strobe lights every now and then.

Re: PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2 trailer is genuinely scary

I'm fundamentally against this sequel and have been bashing it's very right to exist from the start but even I have to admit that went along way to convince me that this might not be so bad after all. I guess that woman is Katie...lol. Damn Speilberg. No one demand this sequel, this was made solely due to the massive and unexpected box office intake "Paranormal Activity" did and executives taking advantage of that. Just as they did with "Blair Witch 2". As I mentioned in another thread the creative team involved in this movie are very aware of the utter crap that "Blair Witch 2" was and have said they aren't going to make the same mistake with "Paranormal Activity 2". Not much is known about the cast or plot except that this sequel has the same premise as the first one except with a bigger budget and an actual script.

Did you actually watch the trailer? There weren't just "random images" (maybe they were to you) but I saw the dogs barking and the kid in the crib reacting and then a woman standing in a catatonic state not un similar to Katie in the first movie (it probably was Katie). If you didn't it that's fine. I keep laughing at the cheep marketing gimmick of them showing the crowd reactions. It worked but it's still pretty cheesy IMO.

Re: PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2 trailer is genuinely scary

I guess that was Katie standing by a crib, but I don't see how that is supposed to be scary. There's no actual hint of plot or anything. I thought the theater crowd was goofy. Oh well, I'm a huge fan of the first film.

Supposedly on the left-hand side, something can be read in the reflection of the closet mirror. Upside and backwards, the words read: "What is happening to Hunter?"

Eh...looked like more of the same. And I got enough of that last movie--which was nowhere NEAR as scary as people make it out to be.

If it means I get another 90 minutes of Boobies McCleavage, that's fine by me.

Re: PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2 trailer is genuinely scary

I've done some deciphering of the Paranormal Activity 2 trailer. Take a look at the last frame of the trailer: you can see the reflection of the baby -- but there is no baby in the room. Also, the writing on the mirror ("What is happening to Hunter?") must refer to the child. Perhaps the demon has its sights set on the little baby?
