When I first read about the premise of [REC] a couple of years back, I thought it sounded like something with potential, but once I saw an early teaser for it, compiled of audience reactions at Sitges and no footage whatsoever, I knew I was game.

Cut to present day, and I've grown considerably warier of not only the hokiertactics used to sell horror movies, but the minimal theatrical runs that some are forced to face. Then along comes Paramount, in the wake of burning off whatever Vantage titles they had acquired, who proceeds to not only dust off their long-ago-purchased home-video horror, Paranormal Activity, but opt to forgo their announced remake plans in lieu of releasing the original -- well, with a reportedly re-shot ending anyway.
