Asylum Produces Cheap Knock-Off For ‘Paranormal Activity’

Most people don’t know about Asylum Studios (and I envy them) so here it is: It’s a movie studio that thrives on making cheap, cheesy and similar looking knock-offs to some of the most popular movies. They all go direct to DVD and are all universally bad, made for the sole reason that unsure buyers may pick it up thinking it’s the sequel to the blockbustery film or even that blockbuster itself.
When ‘The Da Vinci Code’ was released, they blessed us with ‘The Da Vinci Treasure’. When ‘Transformers’ was released, they gave us ‘Transmorphers’ and even knocked off the sequel with ‘Transmorphers 2: Fall Of Man’. Other examples include ‘Snakes On A Train’, ‘The Day The Earth Stopped’, ‘Death Racers’, ‘AVH: Alien vs. Hunters’, ‘The Terminators’ and many more gems. Google these movies and see the trailers/covers. They’re great for a good laugh.
But now they have put aim on the surprise hit that has proved to be the most profitable film of all time – Paranormal Activity. And this time it’s so close to the original in terms of cover design I’m sure many people will be fooled by it. Take a look below.
The plot is this:
Actual found videotape footage of the 2008 “murders” of the Finley family.
Sad but true. It’s been fast-tracked to be released on DVD on December 29th which is of course the same day that Paranormal Activity hits DVD. Good job.
See a couple of their other DVD posters (which are embarassingly hilarious) after the jump! Bonus points to who guesses all of these originals in the comments section!
