Editorial Reviews

This intense edge-of-your seat horror film follows a young suburban couple who record the sinister disturbances in their home while they sleep – even as the domestic haunting becomes more frequent, more threatening and all too personal. Hypnotic and harrowing, Paranormal Activity uniquely delivers frightful suspense punctuated by moments of sudden and unexpected terror, all the way to the shocking ending.

Featuring a version not shown in theaters with an exclusive alternate ending, Paranormal Activity is the one supernatural thriller DVD to own that plays on your most primal fears, and guarantees you’ll need to sleep with the lights on.

A well-written review of any film should never label its subject "good" or "bad". Rather, it should give you an idea of whether or not you can expect to enjoy it, based on your own preferences and expectations. Paranormal Activity is a particularly controversial film when it comes to the potency of its terror. Most reviews either complain, with great disdain, "I hated it - it wasn't scary at all" or exclaim in total satisfaction, "It scared the pants off me - I loved it". There seems to be little in-between.

I saw the film today, having read enough reviews to know pretty much what to expect. But before I reveal my own reaction to Paranormal Activity, I would like to offer a few ideas that those who know little about this film may find helpful.

Alfred Hitchcock, the celebrated director who was known as "The Master of Suspense" held many interesting theories about what frightens an audience. Hitchcock believed that, when properly stimulated, the viewer's imagination was far more powerful - and far scarier - than many direct images that may or may not frighten the average viewer. Directly depicting a ghost, a monster or a demon for example, even with today's special effects, may scare many viewers, but that will depend solely on the quality of the effects. And even if well done, many viewers may find the images unconvincing or downright laughable, for they may have other ideas about what a ghost, monster or demon should look like.

However, if the filmmaker merely implies that a supernatural event is taking place, and sets up the situation with enough skill, the viewer's imagination can take over and sometimes yield a far more frightening experience than any vivid imagery ever will.

Paranormal Activity is a film about a couple, Katie and Micah, and their experience being haunted by a demon. Although the film starts off slowly as the plot is sketched out, about a third of the way into the film (when you start witnessing the paranormal activity for yourself) you are drawn into the film and can really enjoy it. The film is based on the "found footage" premise made famous my The Blair Witch Project. The viewer is told that this is a true story at the beginning, which adds to you caring about the characters and events in the film. The film is legitimately scary with a terrific ending...if you can get past the 30 minute mark you will enjoy it, but if you have a short attention span or need a whole lot of action, then avoid this movie - it's a character centric movie rather than action or special effects focused.

While I enjoyed the movie, the extras were simply non-existant. The only extra was an alternate ending. This film could have used a commentary as the story behind the film is exceptional. The director used his own home for the film, the actors were paid only $500, one of the actors was actually the cameraman, and the film is one of the most profitable films of all time. It would have been interesting to hear how the director came up with the idea, what led him to utilize the found footage premise, and how the minimal special effects were done.

I recommend that anyone interested in scary movies watch this - it's better at night curled up in bed, since most of the action takes place late at night in the couple's bedroom - but it is not a must own since there are no extras to make it a worthwhile purchase.

Oh fun! Oh I was one of those who voted for it to be screened in my city in South Texas. I went online, I got sucked into the hype and why not, it's fun and it was new and yes it's been done to death but so has The Fast and the Furious and dudes still get all puckered up about that so why can't fans of Paranomal Activity do the same? Is it accurate? I don't know, I've never had a demon follow me, at least not knowingly. How can anyone really rip apart a supernatural movie? It's really something that can't be proven so it's open to speculation and viewer interpretation and that's what made these films so successful.

The acting is superb for two uknowns. The director made a solid decision on choosing actors. Katie breaks the typical body mold and that's is great! She has a beautiful body and her charm and playful candor is what makes the sinister side of her all the more shocking. In all, for a movie that was shot in 7 days and on a what was it, 7K budget I think, geez, look at my review of As Above so Below, another found footage that kinda sucked on a huge budget.

Say what you want about Paranormal Activity and it's sequels but I think they're scary, they're fun and the mythos is really interesting. I'm looking forward to the new one in 3D and it's supposed to explain the time travel aspects and I'm looking forward to it. I haven't let the digital age spoil my fun. Movies still impress me, however great or small the effects. And if you're home alone with the lights off this movie will scare you. It's the kind of movie that will creep up on you when you're asleep and wake up for a glass of water and realize that you should have just remained asleep. I'll pay for that, over and over. That's what we're here for; to be scared and messed with !!!! This film does both. Watch it and keep watching. Have fun!!!
