Paranormal Activity, or, Possibly the Scariest Movie Ever Made and The Best Reason to Wear Diapers at the Cinema February 18, 2008

Paranormal Activity

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m an enormous fan of horror movies. Good, bad, I’ll watch just about anything; there’s a reason I own every single Puppet Master film, even though the vast majority of them aren’t any good. There’s just something about them that pushes my buttons every single damn time, but the strange part? It’s not because they scare me. I’m hardly ever scared watching a horror flick. In fact, I can only name a few that have truly frightened me — Jaws (as a child) and The Blair Witch Project (as a teenager). Last night, kt and I attended the San Francisco Independent Film Festival and added a new one to the list: Paranormal Activity.

“A young couple suspects that their house is haunted by a malevolent entity. They set up video surveillance to capture evidence of what happens at night as they sleep. Their surveillance and home videos have been edited into the 99 minute feature film Paranormal Activity.”

You can check out the trailer right here.

The film plays into today’s popular style of filming from the perspective of your everyman (in this case, a couple that’s living together — one a student, the other a work-from-home day trader) to ground the audience in a reality that’s not achievable with the traditional Hollywood style. That works for me; it was great, if a tad unrealistic, in Cloverfield and was the whole reason The Blair Witch Project was so effective. I was a little offput in the first few minutes, however, when the film attempted to claim the preceding events were real, thanking local authorities for handing over the footage. Ugh. Maybe this movie wasn’t going to be hokey, after all?

No. The movie drops the “lost footage” pretense the moment the footage starts rolling and goes through the typical motions of establishing a relationship with our characters, so that we’ll eventually buy into their fear as the events around them transpire. Thankfully, we’re completely sold on their affection for each other, as they express all the dynamics of a relationship’s day-to-day ups and downs. They’re actually pretty funny, too, which is a plus, and releases the shitload of tension the audience has after each nightly “haunting.”

Paranormal Activity’s narrative is split between day scenes when the couple reacts to what happened the night before and night scenes where a camera is setup on a tripod to record the hauntings. I could spoil every single one of the hauntings and you’d be just as terrified, but much of the fun comes from not knowing what the fuck will happen next and how the situation is going to escalate; often times, they’ll go whole nights without anything happening, prompting the viewers to constantly get riled up. Maybe something will happen, maybe it won’t.

Paranormal Activity

The hauntings themselves start with the staples — lights going on and off, doors opening and shutting, footsteps — and escalates to the point that you’re almost afraid it’s going to become silly and lose the magic (a rather terrifying dose of magic), but it remains grounded and continues to fuck with your head in such a brutal and relentless fashion. You may not believe in ghosts, but this movie will make you scared as fuck at the possibility they are around us. kt and I were gripping each other’s hands to the point of pain during every night encounter, and that’s no joke. Paranormal Activity is not for the weak hearted and is one of the few films that stays with you after you’ve left the theater to the point that you wished it wouldn’t.

The amount of alcohol we drank afterwards was directly to proportional to our desire to simply pass out and not think about the movie in our apartment. As I was typing this very entry up, I went and turned on all the lights and goosebumps line my arms. I can’t oversell this movie enough, and if you have any opportunity to see Paranormal Activity in the future, take it.

Paranormal Activity is our generation’s The Exorcist, and that is not a comparison I make lightly.

something that made it even more terrifying for me is that the main character’s name is katie. seeming how that tis my name as well, it made for an extra creepy scare factor.

2. Juniper - February 22, 2008

This movie scared the bahjeesus out of me. I don’t watch horror films often, but for some reason I could not resist Paranormal Activity. I am glad I saw it because it was a real thrill. There was a moment when the fear factor of the film peaked for me and for a brief moment I felt the fear go to the edge of my skull. I hope Dreamworks handles this film with care.

3. Don - February 22, 2008

Trailer looks nasty. Something, I think I’ll have to watch during daylight hours.

4. mrstetris - February 26, 2008

oh dear lord. i had such a scary dream about this frackin’ movie. AND THEN i woke up scared as shit. couldn’t wake up my fellow bed partner, i didn’t want to scare him too. so instead, i tossed and turned for over an hour, heart racing and heavily breathing. finally i just went to my living room to watch some tv. the sun started to rise and i felt safe. this movie is going to haunt me for awhile.

5. Cinemoose - March 13, 2008

This movie is scary only if you can believe in the whole “lost footage” gimmick. If not, you’ll probably find the movie a little boring. That being said, the movie is very good at creating a sense of dread and suspense.

6. Leoface - August 19, 2008

i want to watch this film!!!! where can i view it?!

7. Mariposa - December 4, 2008

I must see this movie! Where do I find it???

jjjj - October 30, 2009

its called a theater lol

8. Davey - January 21, 2009

I managed to catch this movie. Sure it’s scary stuff and I’ve seen my fair share of paranormal films, but I think it loses something in the fact that it’s all fiction. I know thats the in thing at the moment with these documentary style movies like Cloverfield and Blair Witch, but it’s still fiction. I recently saw The Ghosts of Crowley Hall which is a real documentary movie, and that really did scare me senseless. And I think part of that is the fact that it really did happen. These two movies are very similar, but I know which I would pick. Sorry, Paranormal Activity just didn’t do it for me.

9. pk - January 21, 2009

Hey Davey, thanks for the recommendation; I’ll be checking out The Ghosts of Crowley Hall soon. Too bad it’s not available via Netflix. Could you share how you managed to see the movie? I’ve been desperate to show other people the flick; it’s been almost a year!

10. Davey - January 29, 2009

Hey pk. The DVD has been out since last year and is available from the official site. You can also download it from there too. It’s on Amazon also. I bought the DVD as it’s got some xtras on there. Here’s the link http://www.crowleyhallghosts.com/

16. sasha - October 9, 2009

Just watched the film.. If you get car sick or dizzy of amusement rides, beware! I spent most of the movie covering my eyes due to the filming moving around sooooo much.. I felt like i was riding a spinning ride the whole time.
If you buy into the film, it is very freaky.. but don’t sit tooo close!!!

Excellent movie. You have to watch it. I did get a bad headache but it was worth it. We all enjoyed the movie.

20. Isabel - October 13, 2009

Excellent movie, I couldn’t sleep the entire night and I maybe I will not be able to sleep for a few night more but it was worth it.

21. Irene - October 13, 2009

This movie is super scary i dont care what othe people say. I saw it three days ago and still have not had a full night sleep. I keep waking uo thinking that something “PARANORMAL” is going to happen. Seriously I have seen lots and lots of scary movies and really never been scared. I was looking for something to scare the s***t aout of me and never happened and trust me i complained a lot after watching these movies. But after I saw Paranormal Activity I must say i have been so scared that i cant even sleep. So plz dont say its trash cuz it really isnt. Its worth watching but unless u really want to be scared dont watch it cuz i did and i regret it cuz i am scared as fuck. Seriously………..

22. Irene - October 13, 2009

Klane - October 21, 2009

Um, no. They were actors. It was scripted. Not real.

28. Samantha - October 18, 2009

GREAT movie! i watched it and i believe every second of it! IT IS THE SCARIEST MOVIE MADE YET!

29. Naylers - October 18, 2009

Hahaha oh man this movies great! Sooooo scary. 5/5 personally. Rolling stones wasnt bsing when they said scariest movie in this century! man….Id see it again 😛

30. Dennis - October 18, 2009

Sorry to be a wet blanket but this movie did absolutley NOTHING for me. Didn’t find it scary at all and when the movie finally does pick up pace, it ends! Highly un-recommended

Elise - November 27, 2009

its because everyone is used to all the other stupid horror flicks with the original chain saw or knife. du nuhh! here comes scream!!! shhesh ya know what i mean….come on…this stuff is like real. thats the scariest thing of all.

just think if it happens to you….

31. Ethan - October 18, 2009

Now, I saw it today for the first time ever in theaters. I’m 14, so you think I’d have the crap scared outta me, right? I love scary movies personally, and I would choose them over any kinds. What truely made this movie scary was how closely bonded the audiance and the characters are. And the way that the movie was set, documentary, was extremely effective. I wish it wouldve been longer, though. The fact that the movie was NOT-HOLLYWOOD made it a million times better. Its my favorite movie, and its all ive been thinking about today. i strongly recommend seeing it. its the best scary movie out there, and the fact that its so realistic makes it worse. it doesnt go beyond believeable like every other movie, but it stays within reality and leaves you on the edge of your seat. the ending was truely the scariest part, and will stick with me. but the fact that the movie eases in and out of the chill factor makes it nail-biting. you never know when something is gonna happen. you can tell by the rumble in the theaters that something will happen, but it gives you a minute to guess what will happen before it does. that adds to the effect. the movie is totally creeper-status. i loved it and i recommend it to everyone. and its even funny just to give you a break…just so you can settle into the movie. nice addition. this movie is offically the best movie ive ever seen. 6/5 stars. no joke. i recommend it to everyone. EVERYONE. this independant film beats every movie in the horror genre. hollywood or not. i hope you guys all enjoy it as much as i do.

32. Smitty - October 18, 2009

I would have to agree with Dennis. As soon as the movie started to pick up, it ended. I jumped once but I totally think the previews made it out to be more than what it was. I laughed more than anything.

I was let down. But see for yourselves, I guess everyone has a different opinion.

33. cynthia sndyer - October 19, 2009

tht waas the scariest movie ever seen

34. cynthia sndyer - October 19, 2009

i hated tht movie it was scry i slept wit my mom lmfao

35. BrittanyNichole - October 19, 2009

I dragged my boyfriend to the movies with me to see this today. He had never watched a trailer fro the movie so he wasn’t sure what to expect. I told him that it was said to be the scariest movie of the century but it could also be the next blair witch. At the beginning it didn’t hold my attention at all. i couldn’t get into it. When the night scenes came up i knew i needed to be prepared so i held on for dear life. but then there were night scenes where nothing happened at all. so of course by the next night scene i was expecting nothing and jumped 10 feet when something happened. i must admit i love scary movies but none have them have made me this creeped out. I was sitting in the garage and i jumped when i heard the wind bang against the door. It was a fantastic film. It could have had a better beginning but otherwise it was a 10/10!

36. Watch Paranormal Activity - October 20, 2009

This was such a scary movie..probably the scariest I’ve seen since The Exorcist.

39. Robbert - October 21, 2009

to these goddamned dicks, i did my time on figuring out these stupid bitch ass website.. the links on them are real but the survey shit is fake. what i did was scrolled down to where you could see the website and would this link… : http://stagevu.com/video/asytmqyxcxhy
it works! i swear. im will to give you all my email to prove it. but thats another day. so ignore these stupid bitches and go to this website. 100% good. quality, ehh its okay. not the best but ive already put it on dvd. i should upload it myself. have fun. scary movie

40. Robbert - October 21, 2009

o.m.g. sorry for all those typos. im an idiot. lol. what i did was hit Print-Screen on my keyboard as soon as i saw the link and pasted it in Paint. went to it, and it works. you actually get to watch the movie. promise!

41. Klane - October 21, 2009

So, I’m a wuss, every horror movie scares me, but this more than others. One, the girl being haunted shares me name, and two, it has that realistic feel. Also, the lack of “scary music” makes all the scary parts unexpected.
To be honest, I had my eyes closed and ears covered for most of the movie, but the ending STILL scared the crap out of me (even though I didn’t technically see it) and even the ghetto dudes sitting next to me were saying “This shit ain’t funny anymore, I can’t watch this anymore!” And by the end of the movie I was shaking and whimpering and crying. This was almost a week ago and I’m still scared to be alone in the house, and trying to sleep is kind of hard. If you’re into scary movies (I’m not) I suggest seeing it.

Elise - November 27, 2009

OMG this movie is haunting me too. like i hear little creeks or noises that are regular and it makes me jump when i never do!!! omg….fourth time to see it and i jump every time.

42. Heather - October 21, 2009

So I decided to watch this tonight…

I grew up on horror movies.

And i’ve never been so afraid. In. My. Life.

43. crystal - October 22, 2009

i saw this movie, and it scared the shit out of me,but im hearing that its real footage and then im hearing its not, either way im scared shitless,lol. but i would like to know.

44. Fernando - October 23, 2009

I just watched this film and truthfully no film has ever scared me as this movie has. I almost lost my mind when it grabbed her leg and dragged her off to the other room. I unfortunately have had experiences in the past but they happened when I was a young boy. This movie is going to be seen by my whole family they have to. They will relive some of the experiences we have had in the past.

45. peke - October 23, 2009

One question where is the house located at? me and my girlfriend want to know so we can get that question out of our head please

46. rachel - October 24, 2009

I’m goin to see it tonight can’t wait

47. Falcon Taylor-Carter - October 24, 2009

I just saw it. It was creepy, being 100% true and all, but it actually wasn’t scary. It made me jump once or twice, and it was certainly creepy, but only a little scary. Then again, I’ve never really seen a scary movie. Not in the sense I don’t watch them, I watch all kinds of horror movies; in the sense that none of them is scary. But just the way this is made, paramount edited the order of the scenes, no filming for the creation of the movie, is fucking creepy and fucking awesome

48. Cristina - October 24, 2009

I saw it a few nights ago with my little cousin and my older sister.We were soooo scarred!I was at the point to were my head was tucked into my coat and holding onto my little cousins hand as tight as I could.But um soo I know this might sound stupid but um this movie isnt real is it? o.o….

49. Lucky - October 25, 2009

Guys its awesome and the best part is the story is real but the movie isnt .. check this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paranormal_Activity_(film)

50. abby rose - October 25, 2009

this movie really didn’t scare me. seriously, I’m amazed at all these reviews about how terrifying it is. the scariest damn part was their awful taste in furniture! that was one ugly ass house.

jennifer suzanne dawson - October 25, 2009

53. Sondra - October 26, 2009

Holy. I cannot describe to you how afraid of THE WORLD i am right now. I dragged my boyfriend to the theater to see it because i didnt understand all the freakin hype about it. Now i do. Im not one for scary movies and i have had my experiences in the past with hauntings. This crap isnt funny this is real. If youre into scary movies this is definitley your movie. But to people like me who cant sleep for days or be alone for days after stuff like this…. this is NOT your kind of movie. I cried… a few times. Havent been this worked up over a scary movie since i was like ten. I refuse to go home tonight cause the boyfriend isnt home to sleep with me. I refuse to be alone. This movie will SCAR you for life im not joking.

anna - October 30, 2009

54. Chris - October 26, 2009

I just saw the movie and thought it was the lamest film since blair witch. There was nothing scary except the final ending i thought it was a waist of time and money. It was just another predictable low budget film. I give it a 2 on a scale of 1 to 10

anna - October 30, 2009

but i thot it was real some are saying it is and some arent?

55. Random - October 27, 2009

@Sondra

I can’t agree with you more. I’m not what you would call a hardcore horror movie enthusiast, but I’ve seen my fair share of horror movies.

All I can say about Paranormal Activity is that it has affected me in a way I never thought possible. During the movie, I gripped the armrest of my chair to where it hurt my hands. Not to mention, I was breathing heavy (which I’ve never done before in a movie).

When leaving the theater, my friend and I agreed that were were TREMBLING with fear. Neither of us have been that scared in our entire lives. I’m still astonished in regards to the fact that a movie did this…

I decided not to to go home and sleep alone, so I accompanied my friend back to his place and TRIED to sleep. I had nothing but pure adrenaline going through my body from 12am to 6am and got no sleep. As a result, I suffered from dehydration and low blood-sugar, I had to buy a powerade in the morning.

It’s been 3 days since I’ve seen it and when night time comes around, I tend to think about it more and more and my level of relaxation goes out the window and I need to take anti-nausiants to help me sleep.

I can definitely say this movie is a brilliant film and recommend it only to those who are not of the weak-hearted or with overactive imaginations. This movie WILL scare and possible traumatize you.

56. beanz - October 27, 2009

this movie was one of the scarest movies i have seen in a long time. the funny thing is that i deal with ghost daily. i am co founder to a paranomal group that is based out of south lyon michigan. the group is called SLAPS and has been around for about two years now. so a movie like this has me thinking about what kind of stuff i am getting into…..

57. nos - October 28, 2009

omg i just saw this and its now 7 am and i cant sleep this movie terrified me

matthew - October 28, 2009

this movie is so boring its not even scary what A RIP OFF! ican name five more scary movies

cat - October 31, 2009

I agree. Not scary at all unless you are scared of getting motion sickness. I had to close my eyes but it was just because the annoying camera work made me so carsick. what a waste of a halloween afternoon.

58. Riley - October 28, 2009

Honestly, this movie scared the shit out of me. I watched it because I’ve had weird things happen to me all my life, and due to the hype it was real, I made the decision to watch it.

Now, it’s 7:44PM, I got 2 college exams in the morning…and I highly doubt I’ll be able to sleep.

Weird shit happens…and this movie shows just how damn freaky it can get. Did anyone else get fucking freaked when they showed the exocrism scene? I had to look away…

59. Brandy_nichole - October 28, 2009

Most all movies don’t scare me… Usually the ones that do scare me are GHOST stories, PARANORMAL movies, etc… Saw and Jason movies are not scary… This movie is soooo creepy and scary. Were any of the scenes in the movie real?? Also was this made at there real home, were they a real couple, etc? The movie was quite funny, but also scary because you feel bad for the girl, she becomes quite likeable in the movie so yep it’s DEFINITELY worth seeing,,, but I never have to sleep with my mom but I don’t know about to night, I may jump in the bed with her, if I haven’t calmed down by tonight….

60. Les - October 30, 2009

See it.

See the movie.

See it NOW, tonight!

61. anna - October 30, 2009

63. Allwyn - October 30, 2009

The movie really isn’t scary at all. May be ppl not accustomed to horror movies find such stuff scary. I found the movie quite lame.
Don’t wanna dampen your spirit.
May be the weak hearted wld find it scary and scoopy.

64. Dee Sayer - October 30, 2009

can some1 help me? I want to find a site that will give me the movie for free but I haven’t had any luck.
email me at devonsayer@yahoo.com.

65. Chase - October 30, 2009

I have a question for those who say it is real…If it is why was there no news coverage of it in November if 2006?

66. manda - October 31, 2009

i really wanna know if this was all real footage from when it actually happened, is it real?

cat - October 31, 2009

no it’s not real you could tell they were acting and micah was just talking about the casting call or whatever. come on guys.

67. manda - October 31, 2009

it had no credits at the end, thats kinda weird

68. cska - October 31, 2009

Haha movie was alright for a budget film a few times throughout the movie i picked up on body language ques and how they were interacting that i thought they were just actors by the way the movie isn’t even out in my country and i knew nothing of this film until watching it. A friend gave it to me and said its some thriller/horror and I watched it on Halloween ahaha.

Good movie but no joke this sort of shit does happen i haven’t experienced it to this effect how they are going about it in the film but any one that is open minded has had some experience with spirits etc but this movie is going with a entity which is in whole different level. By the way wasn’t that movie poltergeist based of a true story?

69. Thomas A. - November 1, 2009

i have heard a mix-up of different possiblities. i watched the movie last nite (halloween) and then was absolutly terrified of my attic. anyways, the movie is portrayed and based on true events of the writer of the film, i think. i’ve also heard that this movie is too real to make up. i am a believer in the fiction enveloped around some truth.

It’s made clear that it’s Not Real and if you wait til the end of the movie you would see a statement that says “All the characters and events portrayed in the photoplay are ficticious” and are the Sole property of the those who actually shot the footage. The statement at the start of the film was just to add the Scare Factor and obviously it worked!

The movie is good if you are under 16 years old…..if not don t bother, or just watch the first 15min and you ll get the idea. When the movie ended I was like : That’s it??? it doesn t satisfy u in term of story and action.

This is the scariest movie I’ve ever seen… after I saw it was was completely terrified. I was afraid to go to bed… I fell asleep thinking about it. I would often wake up and turn on the lights, get my cat and shut the door. This lasted for months, but I’m only 12. After my brother forced me to watch this, I’m now scared to see any other horror film. I usually forget about it in an hour, but this stayed with me. The only good side is I can tell my friends I’ve watched this… I recommend you don’t watch this unless you love horror films.

I watched it last night as well, I was wondering if this is real footage or fake. It wasnt as scary and interesting tho as I thought it was going to be, But I dont ever watch scary movies by for some strange reason i wanted to see th is one. I couldnt get to sleep for the longest time afterwards.. What creeped me out the most was reading the end of the movie where it documets they found the guys body days later and the where abouts of katie is still unknown. is that part true or not??? That kind freaked me out not knowing that part.
Hope someone can answer my post.

LOL PA was pretty funny. It wasn’t scary at all though, you guys are pathetic.

actually this is a boring movie; its too lengthy and not at all scary; i don’t get it that when something wrong happens in the house, who would still live there, this doesnt look real.
i love horror movies and this is one of the bad ones i have watched
