The trailer of horror movie Paranormal Activity 2 has been pulled from cinemas in Texas because of complaints it is too scary.

The promo for the film, which is a sequel to Paranormal Activity, started to run in movie theatres prior to midnight screenings of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse on Wednesday, reported Variety online.

The clip caused cinema-goers to complain to bosses at the Cinemark chain about the frightening footage.

US host Ryan Seacrest even took to his page to warn film fans about the trailer, writing, "Paranormal Activity 2 teaser trailer... hold someone."

Officials at Cinemark have now removed the promo from a number of complexes in Texas.

Directed by Tod Kip Williams, Paranormal Activity 2 will hit the screens in October this year. Oren Peli, the director of the first film, will serve as a producer for the sequel.
