2011 HORROR MOVIE PREVIEW: PARAMOUNT PICTURES

While Paramount Pictures isn’t known for horror, they always find a way to squeeze in one quality pic around their new franchise, Paranormal Activity. Most of that can be attributed to J.J. Abrams, who after producing Cloverfiled, is set to unleash Super 8 this summer – this time taking on directing duties! Thankfully Paramount finally got Case 39 out of their system, I’d like to forget it even exists.
