Paranormal 2 Activity Reviewed

This one is dedicated to all who’ve seen the movie that has defined itself, as the ultimate classic of horror; Paranormal Activity, and the sequel Paranormal Activity II. Wait, because I’m not going to let people, who haven’t seen either of these movies feel left out. This review is designed to encourage people to experience Paranormal Activity for themselves.

I realise this review is over-due, but it’s never too late to put your opinion across about a movie so here it is.

Tod Williams’ Paranormal Activity II, made its release Oct 22nd of this year. It follows the concept that was originally made for the first movie. Amateur footage that cleverly, and unveils fear as a dominant emotion. It introduces a realistic perspective of paranormal activity.

Williams’ movie, definitely lives up to the standard of a horror classic; unexpected scares, and screams just when you think it’s over, it hits you back, before you’re able to count backwards to ten. You get the fright of your life with loud door slams, lights turning off, and sounds that leave you questioning where it came from?

Paranormal Activity II has horrific scenes similar to the first movie. Directed by Oren Peli, and released November 25th of 2009. It climbed the box office, and successfully reached to the top with £9,649,669 gross in the UK.

The sequel has the same horrifying scenes you’d expect from the genre, but twice as gory and even more disturbing. There are a couple of scenes that made me want to say WTF!

Let’s not ruin it for the people, who haven’t seen this movie yet. The people who have, will know exactly which scenes I’m talking about.

Oh OK, you convinced me, I’m going to give you a sneak peak, the scene that disturbed me the most, has to be the floating baby that was seen in the movie’s official trailer.

So, go and check Paranormal Activity II out, and be prepared to be scared, but I warn you, don’t watch it alone!

A Beautiful Trooper - James Blunt

Did you know ‘You’re Beautiful’ singer James Blunt was in the British army before he started his musical career? Well, it’s true. The British singer/songwriter was an officer in the Life Guards, a Calvary in the British army. In an interview with the BBC, Blunt proudly points out that he prevented WW3.

He describes a particular time, when he refused an order to go against the Russians in Kosovo.

It was in 2002, when Blunt left his army career behind him to pursue a musical career instead. Back To Bedlham, his debut album was released in 2003, upon release the album later, became the biggest selling UK album in 2009.

In a recent interview with Celebrity Mania, Blunt shows no regret of leaving the army. He’s glad to put it behind him, simply because he doesn’t agree with the British military’s involvement with Afghanistan.

James Blunt recently released his latest album ‘Some Kind Of Trouble’ earlier this month. So if you’re a James Blunt fan then what are you waiting for? Grab this album at a store near you, or as always you can download directly from the iTunes store.
