Paranormal Activity (2009-Movie by Paramount Pictures)
Paranormal Activity is a 2007 American supernatural horror film written and directed by Oren Peli. The film centers on a young couple, Katie and Micah, who are haunted by a supernatural presence in their home. It is presented in the style of "found footage," from a camera set up by the couple in an attempt to photograph what is haunting them.
First off, there have been a lot of mixed reviews on this movie. Some people said it scared the crap out of them, and others laughed at it and turned it off without finishing it. Myself, I was scared crapless! I'm very gullible, so when my husband said this was based on a true story when we started watching it, I was creeped out! It was like they took my worst nightmares (and believe me, I have plenty!) and made a movie out of it.
It all depends on what scares you. If you like seeing the monsters in movies or tv shows, then this won't scare you. But if the idea of some evil spirit wandering around your house while remaining invisible freaks you out, then you really have to watch this movie. I was literally in tears and screaming throughout the majority of it. The things that happen to this couple just really scared me silly. By the end, I was so terrified that I didn't want to watch anymore, but I couldn't stop without seeing the ending.
I don't want to spoil anything for those of you who haven't watched it, but to me, it was by far the scariest thing I have ever watched. It still gives me goosebumps to think about what happened in it. I still get a catch in my voice when I try to talk about certain scenes. Even though I know how it ended. Even though I know it wasn't real. It still upsets me.
You can get Paranormal Activity online, rent it at movie rental stores, or from Netflix.
