yeah makes me kinda actually wanna go watch this movie
yeah the marketing stunts for this have been pretty cool. Did you see hear about the shenanigan they pulled with press by leaving packages at their door
And Iithink that differentiates your crowds, the gore vs no gore. I'm personally a fan of suspense thrillers more than slashing and blood and gore and guts. Some friends of mine are excited to see this but I haven't even seen the first one so I'm looking for input and everyone seems to have a very distinct view on it.
Found a premiere interview this morning and in it the producer, Oren Peli, says he thinks people are here for the 'creepy' as opposed to gore and over the top special effects. I think it depends for sure on what you are looking for and it sounds like people would know whether or not they would be into the 2nd one by knowing about the first. Its a franchise, its not all of a sudden going to be blood and guts.
