Paranormal Activity climbed its way up to #1 on the box office chart this weekend with $22 million bucks, shooting down Saw IV to number 2 with 14.8 million. Looks like the Saw Franchise is loosing its edge. Paranormal Activity has become quite the box office success.
It's incredible how well the movie is doing. It's been out growing in box office numbers the last 5 weeks now. It just shows that with the right story, scare tactics and marketing, a movie that could have easily flopped is now a huge box-office success.
Now according to the LA Times, Paramount Pictures might make a sequel, which would be the worst idea ever! Paramount President Brad Grey said the following,
We have the rights on a worldwide basis to do 'Paranormal 2' and we're looking to see if that makes some sense.
Well, let me tell you something, it doesn't make any sense at all. A sequel would only hurt what the first film has accomplished, and make a mockery of it. It will end up being a box office bomb like the Blair Witch sequel was. That was a piece of crap, and reason enough to not want to go out and waste money on a sequel that won't have the same effect as the first film.
I hope to hell they don't end up making a Paranormal Activity 2. They just need to leave it alone, they are getting greedy and it will bite them in the ass in the end(as history has shown). I have no interest in it already, even though I absolutely loved the first film. What do you all think about a sequel?
