New Clips For Skyfall, Paranormal Activity 4 and The Bay Arrive Online
10.18.12 by Ryan
The month of Halloween is here, which means studios are trotting out their horror movies, or, rather, their found-footage horror movies. Yes, the technique re-popularized by Paranormal Activity has taken over the genre, to the dismay of some horror fans, while others might praise the innovation for keeping the costs down and the ability to make more horror movies up. Luckily, it looks like the next two horror movies to be released that utilize the format — Paranormal Activity 4 and The Bay look like they should be able to be interesting and, dare we say it, scary as well. New preview clips from the two movies have arrived online, as well as a new clip from the upcoming James Bond movie Skyfall, which lately seems to be gushing out clips in anticipation of its release next month. We've put all the clips together for your viewing pleasure.
The latest in Trailers
Opening this Friday, Paranormal Activity 4 continues the franchise tradition of placing cameras around a house and watching people being haunted while they sleep. In this installment, the focus shifts from the possessed Katie (Katie Featherston) and her family members to Nevada teen Alice (Kathryn Newton), who starts noticing weird things happening in the night when new neighbors arrive.
In the below clip, loses her bedsheet to an unseen force and then levitates over her bed.
The Bay opens November 2nd and concerns a small seaside Maryland town whose water might be contaminated with a deadly virus (ok, it's definitely contaminated). Barry Levinson (Rain Man, Bugsy) directed the movie, which was originally inspired by the disturbingly true fact that 40% of the sea life in the Chesapeake Bay are dead. Levinson focused the story on a real-life parasite, the isopod, which swim into a fish's gills and eat it from the inside out, and expanded it to a much larger, and horrific, parasite that eventually feeds on human beings as well. "I love horror films and I love sci-fi films...but it started with the Bay being 40% dead," Levinson explained at the New York Comic-Con over the weekend (via Cinema Blend).
In the first clip, the beginnings of the virus is revealed on a little girl.
In the second clip, an isopod is discovered inside a fish, and the reality of what they are capable of is revealed.
Not found footage whatsoever is Skyfall, the 3rd outing for Daniel Craig as the 50-year-old British spy. The movie opens November 9th and, despite the almost daily emergence of preview clip, details are still scarce on the plot, outside of the synopsis revealing that Bond's loyalty to M (Judi Dench) will be tested when her past comes back to haunt her. Somehow, Javier Bardem fits into the plot as the blonde-haired Silva, described by director Sam Mendes as a "classic Bond villain," though how exactly Silva makes life difficult for Bond is unknown.
In the below clip, Silva shows his formidable nature, as Bond looks to have caught the villain, until he learns a cruel lesson on underestimating his opponent.
