The success story of the year, the micro-budgeted (it was shot on a camcorder!) goosebump-evoker “Paranormal Activity”, is headed for Australia. In addition, it’s also about to go ‘Wide’ in the United States.
Made for less than $11,000 by first time director Oren Peli, the flick tells of a young, middle class couple who moves into what seems like a typical suburban “starter” tract house only to discover a disturbing presence already occupies the dwelling.
The Hello Darkness Film Festival – an even showcasing the best of the recent horror and thriller flicks – being held at the ACMI in Melbourne has announced it’ll be premiering (it doesn’t release here until December) “Paranormal Activity” down under. It’ll screen Monday October 26th, 7pm. You can purchase tickets here.
Meantime, Over 1,000,000 people from around the United States demanded the film play in their
city by logging on to ParanormalMovie.com. In response, Paramount Pictures will release the film nationwide beginning Friday, October 16th.
Tickets for the movie will be on sale via ParanormalMovie.com by 5pm PST on Tuesday, October 13th. Those who have ‘demanded it’ will get the first alert when tickets go on sale.
“From the very beginning, we put this film in the hands of the fans and we trusted them to tell us where and when it should be seen. We couldn’t be more thrilled by their overwhelming support and we are happy to release the film in every town – big and small,” said Rob Moore, Vice Chairman of Paramount Pictures.
