1.0 out of 5 stars Thank god for the fast forward button!, 31 July 2013
This review is from: Paranormal Activity [DVD] (DVD)
When the Blair Witch film was all the rage I asked a friend who had seen it if it was really as scary as the hype promised. He turned away, turned back suddenly and said "Boo!" Then asked, "Did that scare you? That's about as frightening as the Blair Witch gets."

Paranormal Activity is equally un-scary and utilises the same irritating "hand held camera" techniques, panning and swinging.....and panning and swinging....as the husband and wife argue and snap at each, try to get some sleep, hear a few creaks and bangs, try the old staple the oui-ja board..... try to sleep...argue...hear creaks and bangs.....argue and snap at each other... try to sleep....

I was very glad I'd recorded the thing and spent most of the time fast forwarding it.

I cannot believe anyone would find this over-long nonsense even remotely frightening. I suggest you just watch the last couple of minutes. At least something happens. It won't make much sense, but it wouldn't make any if you'd watched the whole film either, so what've you got to loose?
