It's a PARANORMAL double feature on the podcast for the last week of (Scary Movie) October! (insert spooky music) LOUD NOISES!!!! For episode 26, we dissect last year's super-successful Paranormal Activity and the just released Paranormal Activity 2. What did Krissy think of the two after seeing both for the very first time this week? Did adding a baby, a fearful Mexican housekeeper and a dog to the mix mean that more stuff actually, you know, happens in the sequel? What could the third entry in the Paranormal series possibly bring? Be careful because spoilers may jump out of nowhere! This podcast is rated PG-13!
