This is not the end of the end

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

In sev­eral in­ter­views (with this writer, for ex­am­ple) Oren Peli, di­rec­tor of Para­nor­mal Ac­tiv­ity, has con­firmed that, fol­low­ing point­ers from Steven Spiel­berg, he rad­i­cally changed the end­ing of his ef­fec­tive, low-bud­get shocker. Now it has been an­nounced that the DVD, re­leased in the US at the end of next month, will fea­ture that orig­i­nal de­noue­ment on an “un­rated” ver­sion of the film.

Should they re­ally be muck­ing around with some­thing so finely tuned? Won’t many fans have al­ready viewed the end­ing on, ahem, un­of­fi­cial me­dia out­lets? The stu­dio has to find some way of flog­ging its DVDs, I guess.
