Product Description

Supernatural thriller in which a young couple tries to rid their new house of unwanted guests. After moving into their new home in San Diego, Katie (Katie Featherson) and husband Micah (Micah Sloat) begin to hear strange noises and witness odd occurences. Believing that she's been followed by ghosts since she was a child, Katie is convinced that malevolent spirits have followed her to her new home. Receiving no help from a local psychic, Micah decides to try and get proof of the ghostly presence by installing a bank of cameras to record any manifestations. Now, as the couple try to make contact with the spirits with the aid of a Ouija board, their unwelcome guests decide to make their presence felt.

Empire magazine reviewer Simon Crook hit the nail firmly on the head when he proclaimed that Paranormal Activity is only as scary as you make it. With that, the film is sure to prove a most divisive piece amongst the horror faithful. For Oren Peli's film deals very much in the "what you don't see is what truly unnerves you" line of shiverdom. The premise is simple, young couple move into a new house and the lady of the house is being "haunted" by a demon {crucially not a ghost}. Trying to get to the bottom of the matter, the male protagonist sets up his new boy toy camera to record what exactly is making things go bump in the night as they try to sleep. What unfolds during each night is hold your breath in anticipation cinema.

Those that know a little about the subject at hand, re; the difference between a ghost and a demon haunting, will quite possibly benefit far more from Paranormal Activity's experience. More so if the thought of incubus/succubus type demons are the things that have been known to render sleepless nights. It's the basic fact that it's the person, and not the property, being haunted {tormented} that Peli is revelling in. With a slow build sense of dread, Peli plants us in a one room scenario, at first it's a noise here and there, a moving door, was that a shadow? Until nerves are frayed to such an extent one finds the eyes darting from side to side afraid of not just missing something, but afraid of actually seeing something! Quite a trick from the first time director. It all builds to a shattering climax, regardless of the ending one has witnessed since there's three known endings out there!

If one invests fully into the mood of the piece the rewards, and scares, are bountiful.

I like this film. Sure, it delivers scares, but I enjoyed other elements of this film besides all the 'paranormal activity'. What I really loved was the home life.

I thought the actors were great and it really did feel real. For once this was a 'found footage film' that made me feel like I really was genuinely watching someone's home movies. The couple seemed very real and natural together and the voyeur in me really enjoyed watching their home life, complete with goofy husband jokes - which were, as always, insensitive and inappropriate. Being a guy I could really relate to this, and loved his humour and recognised dynamics between the pair.

I thought this film was really quite clever. It's always refreshing seeing low budget films that become successes. They nearly always offer something new, for the simple reason that a lack of money forces directors & crew to come up with new, inventive and imaginative ways to solve problems or create effects when they can't just throw money at the problem. In short, it stops film makers being lazy and boost originality and creativity. Paranormal Activity is a perfect example of this.

The jumps, scares and horror, weren't/wasn't relentless, but the film certainly had its moments, with 1 or 2 scenes - actually make that 3 or 4 - being genuinely creepy and sending shivers up my spine. Only one scene really made me jump out my seat, but the rest, as I said, certainly had the shiver factor.

They're making a Paranormal Activity 2 now, in fact I think it's out soon, and it will really interesting to see what's that like and how they approach that. I'm really not sure what type of film it will be, but I hope it's on a par with this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genuinely terrifying 4 Jan 2010
By Dr Evil TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I love a good, scary film, especially ones with supernatural goings-on and the more realistic, the better and PARANORMAL ACTIVITY didn't fail to frighten me and keep me thinking long after the credits had rolled.

The story is about a young couple - Micah and Katie - who move in together and within a few weeks strange things start happening during the night so Micah buys a camera and other recording equipment to try and capture the activity on film. It is all filmed through the perspective of the two lead characters using the hand-held camera and is all recorded in their house, making this feel extremely creepy and personal as you are really taken out of your comfort zone, particularly as a majority of the occurrences happen when they are sleeping. Not actually seeing the ghost or demon makes it also a lot more realistic as it is left to your imagination to what is actually going on.

The acting is spot-on, having a very slow build up near the beginning gave me time to get to know the characters a little bit and therefore care about what was happening to them later on. When the actual hauntings happen their performances are very believable, with real panic and fear (apparently the actors weren't entirely sure what was going to happen to them when it was filmed, so there is a lot of unrehearsed acting here). As the days go by and the hauntings get worse, it gets to the point near the end of the film where I was dreading what was going to happen next.

I think the scariest thing about this film is how it plays on your mind afterwards and made every knock and creak that I heard in my house whilst lying in bed kept me on edge and just couldn't get the creepy scenes out of my head. This is without a doubt one of the most chilling and genuinely creepy films I have ever seen and am so glad I went along with the hype and saw this as it was excellent. If you like a scare then I highly recommend this to you.
