Paranormal Activity is yet another movie for believers. As always when I write about one of these movies, I’m forced to get this out of the way right off the bat. I am not a believer. I am a skeptic. This movie is not for me, but it’s probably for you. To me, the first trailer for Paranormal Activity makes it look barely better than an episode of Ghost Hunters. On the other hand, if you’re a believer, you’re probably really in to Ghost Hunters and so that’s exactly what you’re looking for.

The trailer itself uses a horror movie marketing technique which I thought went out of vogue twenty years ago. The idea here is to convince you that it’s the scariest thing you’ve ever seen by showing you “real” audience members being scared by it. They’re about half a step away from handing out diapers at the box office, as a way of convincing you it’ll be so scary you’ll crap your pants.

You probably won’t shit your pants, but if you’re a believer you’ll enjoy the first trailer for Paranormal Activity because, of course, you want to be scared. You want to believe this stuff can happen. I just want to get my money back and go grab a Big Mac. While I eat, see the first poster and watch the first ever trailer for Paranormal Activity below or watch the trailer in HD at Apple.
