Missed Classics #2: Paranormal Activity (2009)/Paranormal Activity 2 (2010)

Kirsty’s off on a lovely Scottish holiday this week, so Stella and Dan are joined by film journalist and playwright Ian Winterton for a spoilery discussion of  a landmark horror that Dan’s never seen before, Oren Peli’s ‘found footage’ haunted house film, Paranormal Activity.  They also go into detail on its 2010 sequel by director Tod Williams (although not the rest of the franchise).

So, spoilers beware!  Also, apologies for the lower-than-usual audio quality this week, which is due to unexpected occurrences taking away our editing time and forcing us to use the Zoom call audio (and not have time to cut out the swearing).  Normal service should resume next week.
