Short film added to Paranormal Activity DVD / Blu-Ray!

The short film 'Conceptual', directed by Owen Tooth, has just won a competition run on Youtube to be included on the forthcoming UK DVD and Blu-Ray release of the horror feature film 'Paranormal Activity'.

The competition was nationwide, looking for frightening short films which last three minutes. For the competition, Owen re-edited his award winning short film Conceptual which was originally six minutes.

The director of the surprise hit Paranormal Activity, Oren Peli, watched the entries and chose Conceptual with nine other shorts to go on the release as a bonus feature. Paranormal Activity followed in the wake of the Blair Witch project, proving that a low budget film can still make an impact on audiences and box office takings.

It's fantastic to see that Oren is encouraging other directors and using his success to bring attention to films which larger audiences would otherwise have missed.

You can see Owen's film here or buy the DVD when it comes out!

The DVD and Blu-Ray, released through Icon, goes on sale March 22nd.
