About the Movie:
Paranormal Activity is a 2007 American supernatural horror film co-produced, written, directed, photographed and edited by Oren Peli.
It centers on a young couple (Katie Featherston and Micah Sloat) who are haunted by a supernatural presence in their home.
They then set up a camera to document what is haunting them. The film utilizes found-footage conventions that were mirrored in the later films of the series.
Originally developed as an independent feature and given film festival screenings in 2007, the film was acquired by Paramount Pictures and modified, particularly with a new ending.
It was given a limited U.S. release on September 25, 2009, and then a nationwide release on October 16, 2009. The film earned nearly $108 million at the U.S. box office and a further $85 million internationally for a worldwide total of $193 million.
Paramount/DreamWorks acquired the U.S. rights for $350,000.It is the most profitable film ever made, based on return on investment, although such figures are difficult to verify independently as this is likely to exclude marketing costs(1)

First of all I must say, living in Belgium, I have the benefit of not being caught up in the hype machine. I’m sure if I were living in the States, I too would be numb to the affects of this film.
I would imagine being in a crowded cinema would take away from the intimacy of the scares. I watched this alone on my couch in the comforts of my own home cinema.
I am a huge horror fan, not just a gore hound, though I do enjoy some good gore f/x from time to time, but most of all I love a good scare…which is rather hard to come by. Films that have scared me are, The Changeling, The Innocents,
The Ring, Inside (A L’Interior), The Brood, Blair Witch… I’m not easily scared, but given the circumstances in which I watched PARANORMAL ACTIVITY I was quite tense.
This film is a lot like Blair Witch, Cloverfield in the use of the home camera, but the way in which the characters in PARANORMAL approach their situation is rather realistic and believable. The characters are like normal people, not Hollywood types.
The acting is fine and the characters are fun and likable. The only thing I had a problem with (as far as believability) was the exorcism footage they looked at on the net.
Maybe I would have been disappointed if I had driven half an hour to the closest English language cinema to see this film when it comes out in December.
I love going to the cinema for the great image and sound quality. I wouldn’t want to watch AVATAR for the first time at home.
But PARANORMAL ACTIVITY is the film to watch at home with as few people and distractions as possible. It’s not groundbreaking or amazing, but it works and it’s good. I applaud the filmmakers for sending some chills down my spine. Thanks.
Lower those expectations and enjoy the ride
