Paranormal Activity 2 gets a (too scary for Twi-hards?) teaser.

While most of this 68-second teaser is just a reminder of how much you theoretically liked the first film, the last thirty seconds deliver a handful of goose-bumpy shots. Yes, putting a baby in supernatural peril may be cheap, but it is an iconic image that is effective none-the-less. According to Bloody Disgusting, this teaser is apparently too effective. Theaters have allegedly had to pull the teaser from prints of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse after parents complained. The film opens on October 22nd, meaning it will open head-to-head with Saw VII 3D (which amazingly is already finished, as it just received an R for 'sequences of grisly bloody violence and torture, and language'). I enjoyed the first Paranormal Activity for what it was, and it works even better while watching it in your own home. But after the dynamite sixth installment of the Saw series, I'm firmly on the side of Team Kramer. Hopefully there will be enough blood for both horror franchises.

If only 7 could be nearly as good as 6.

If your reports are true, and THAT trailer had to be removed from being in front of a VAMPIRE film, than I don't know what the world is coming to. Global warming and catosrphic oil spills are one thing, but being too scared by THAT trailer while getting ready for a VAMPIRE film is too much.
