I was so happy to see all 3 movies in one box! I watch these all the time and have had requests for them as a Christmas gift from several people as well. Good price too. Get some popcorn, turn out the lights and get ready to jump!
If your looking for a back to basics Horror Movie (or set of them), Paranorml Activity (the first 3) is it. While it is typical "Found Footage" style, the story is about as simple and as stripped down as it can get. And that is what makes this Series GREAT!!!!!! The story revolves around a pair of sisters who seemingly have strange occourences/hauntings that happen around them. The first half of each movie is a bit boring. But this is the set up for the last half of each film as things get progressively freaky! So be prepaired to get literally scared with this trio of films! And the great part is, they put them in one package so you can watch them one right after the other! Get your popcorn, your blanket, & make sure to be ready to be scared. This 3 pack is definately a must for any film collection
This is "Blair Witch" on steroids. All the movies are well crafted on a low budget. Not that this method isn't being over worked...the "documentary" presentation, but these are REALLY good. Very subtle horror. I won't reveal any spoilers for any of them. It's best to just see all of it on your own. But some of the special effects...MAN, they will just take your breath away and it's the simplicity of them that works so well. The newer movie "The Conjuring" draws heavily on some of the effects used in these three movies. A note...do not watch the alternate version ending of the first movie. It could ruin the experience of the triad. And do understand this is a long story that goes from present to past. It's part of the charm. I haven't seen the 4th installment, but have read it has little to do with these three anyway so just enjoy these three and let me know how the 4th one is to you. The "Blair Witch" comparison? Watch the third installment...get to the end...you be the judge! ;-)
