Oh, The Horror!

And that’s “Horror” with an “H” so you’ll know that I’m not talking about the Meg Whitman experience this time. At a screening for Jackass 3D, there was a preview for the upcoming release of a new iteration of “the-worst-film-ever”, yes, there’s going to be yet another Paranormal Activity video, the first was the worst piece of crap I’ve ever paid to see (and the only one that I’ve ever walked out on).

Why, you may ask, would someone do this? Simple answer, because it cost so little to make and yet it brings in the big bucks that conventional film makers have wet dreams about.

You see, the way the film business works is that if there are two films that are basically the same level of production value in release starting during the same week that each bring in 20 million dollars, and one of them cost 5 million for everything to make and advertise it, as the producer you’re a certified hero. At the same time, if you’re the producer of the other one and it cost 21 million just to make it and it brings in that same 20 Million, you’re a miserable loser and don’t deserve to live.

Well, except maybe in Culver City.

Feel free to ignore any ads that are shown below, I don’t get to choose them and (sadly) I don’t make a penny off any of them, so in the holy name of capitalism I rebuke and don’t endorse or support any of them, unless of course they’re made of funny stuff…..
