The teaser for Paranormal Activity 2 released in June showed grainy footage of a dog, a baby in a crib, and an ominous hooded figure standing in the doorway. There was also a creepy message written on the mirror: ”What is happening to Hunter?” But good luck getting any more plot details — or even the names of the actors! — from anyone involved in follow-up to last year’s surprise horror hit. Oren Peli, who wrote and directed the first movie and is producing the sequel, does promise that this is no Blair Witch 2. ”We were all aware of [that debacle], and the last thing we wanted was a movie that would not live up to the original,” he says. ”It’s not going to be a gore-fest. The feel is very consistent with the first one.” Fine, but if anything happens to that baby?
