Following the huge success of the low budget original last year’s sequel was bigger and not quite as effective, though there was a nice attempt to tie the stories of the two films together. Now we’re going back in time to the 80s to where it all began with the two sisters sodding around with evil forces and somesuch nonsense.
There was a decent first trailer to the film and then the first poster appeared. So far, so Ghostwatch. Now there’s another trailer from the Apple people which really makes it look like a big screen version of Ghostwatch and gives away a number of plot points that you may want to avoid.
Having said that it’s looking very similar to the whole set-up cameras, watch night-time shenanigans, get psychic in, record crazy stuff, end with people being thrown around etc of the previous two films. When you watch pay attention to the moment when the psychic looks into the cupboard space – there’s something on the wall which raises eyebrows and neckhairs…
But the story doesn’t end there. Three horror sites in the US were each sent a VHS tape and asked to film what was on the tapes and post the results. It’s your typical PR stunt for a film of this type but it’s a pretty fun one. As with all these clips it’s blink and you’ll miss it stuff. Can you see any faces in the fire?
