When news came out for the first Paranormal Activity about the alternate endings, fans everywhere searched on line to find the tapes of the rumored endings. Finally when the DVD came out, the option to watch the movie with the original or alternate ending appeared. Now in the sequel, Paranormal Activity 2, it has been confirmed that there is an alternate ending to this film as well. However, it was not shown to the public eye because it had been claimed as, “too violent.” Too violent may be an understatement when you hear about how it would’ve ended.
Apparently in the alternate ending, Katie kills the baby boy Hunter by breaking his neck, exactly the way she murders his father in the original ending to Paranormal Activity 2. In the original ending, we see Katie take Hunter away from his deceased mom, and walk off into the darkness. Then subtitles come across the screen saying that, “Katie and Hunter’s where abouts are still unknown,” leaving the audience aching for another sequel to find out what happens to the adorable baby boy.
However, fans may be outraged from this new alternate ending because not only does it not leave room for a decent sequel, but killing a baby by snapping his neck is way too horrid to be watched in a movie. For those die hard Paranormal Activity fans, they may be dying to see the alternate ending as well as looking towards a sequel, but this new ending is going to push a lot of viewers away.
