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.

The film follows our two protagonists, Katie and Micah, a young couple. Micah, Katie's somewhat skeptical and foolish boyfriend, has recently bought a camera and plans on documenting the so-called presence that seems to be following Katie, and manifesting itself as some sort of haunting.
The film is great, and follows a good "less is more" philosophy, relying more on creeps and subtle scares (loud noises or doors opening and closing by themselves, etc) then on gore or monsters. It was good in the theater, but is even better when viewed at home, in the dark with friends or family or even by yourself.
The DVD and Blu-Ray release, though, is fairly weak. There are no real special features to speak of (save for one alternate ending), which is a shame. We know for fact that there is a second alternate ending floating around online, in addition to unused footage and a commentary track the director recorded for the UK release (from what I've heard), so it's kind of annoying that the American R1 release got passed up on for special features.
In addition, although more of a nit-pick, I have to complain about something else with the Blu-Ray. The two sequels both included not only the Blu-Ray disc, but also a DVD AND Digital Copy, whereas this film only includes the Blu-Ray and digital copy... No DVD, which is annoying, as although I have a Blu-Ray player, I don't have one in every room with a TV, so some rooms still only have regular DVD players, so it's limiting for now until I upgrade the rest of my stuff.
But all in all, good film, sub-par release for the R1 territories, but still worth buying for the great thrills and chills it provides.
I vaguely remember the original and wanted to show it to some family, the scariest part was at the ending when i jump off the couch and shout a large profanity, panicking a disappointed group who was just starting to relax after the cheezy climax of the alternate ending paramount tacked onto the end, so they can then proceed to run the franchise into the ground with successively worse flixs with cheap budgets and high profit margins.
