MUCK Scares Off Heavyweight Competition
Paramount Pictures Rethinks Paranormal Release Date [For Immediate Release]
BEVERLY HILLS, CA – JANUARY 29 – Paramount Pictures isn’t going to compete with MUCK for horror fans bucks this Friday the 13th, March 2015. The studio just announced that they are moving the release of Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension back some several months.
The gods of horror smiled upon the MUCK franchise when the perfect release date of Friday the 13th, March 2015 was set. The date is significant not only because MUCK stars Kane Hodder, known for his iconic role as Jason Voorhees in the Friday the 13th film franchise, but also because the horrific events of MUCK take place entirely on St. Patrick’s Day, yielding the perfect storm in the month of March for MUCK.
MUCK director Steve Wolsh “wasn’t afraid” when Paramount announced that the 6th entry of the Paranormal series would open against his film. Now, many months later, we find out that it won’t. Why does the Paranormal franchise suddenly have cold feet? MUCK may have simply scared them off. With a successful MUCK: Kickstarter campaign having recently funded the MUCK prequel, MUCK pre-orders piling up, and an upcoming premiere at the Playboy Mansion, one can’t deny all the positive buzz surrounding MUCK. Has David spooked Goliath?
Paramount is mum on the reasoning of its decision, but one thing is certain: MUCK will have one less competitor vying for the dark hearts and twisted minds of the horror community this March.
