Movie Review: Paranormal Activity

Let's talk about movies... I guess you all heard about the Paranormal Activity.

Ever since I first saw the trailer for this movie, I've been dying to see it. It looked like I was finally gonna get my dose of scary. So I thought...

I watched it yesterday. Alone, in the evening (it ended a few minutes past midnight). My first impression: not impressed. Not impressed at all. Actually it's one of the most boring movies I've seen in a while. There's absolutely nothing interesting in the first half of the movie and the other half is rather funny than scary. It should be described as a ''bad relationship'' movie if you ask me. I got goose bumps, but it was from cold, unfortunately. =)

I *should* be scared after I see a movie about ghosts/demons, especially because I believe they really exist. Well, this one didn't scare me. Why do people say it's so good then? Can you help me figure this out? *scratches head*
I've been a LOT more scared by the Discovery Channel series called A Haunting.

Have you seen this movie? What do you think about it: scary, funny, good, bad...?

It's only gonna get 2 clip boards (out of 5) from me. I wouldn't recommend this one, unless you're easily amused. ;)

Thanks for looking!


  1. hah guess its the same hype as there was from blair witch and grudge and the ring and so on.. and none of them were scary.. guess Americans are easily scared hehe and we Europeans is a bit more hardcore! :D

  2. actually the ring still gives me nightmares, but I remember when blair witch came out. it was so stupid

    Chris and I are mega horror buffs so I'm glad to know to pass this one up. It takes a lot to scare either of us so I'd probably fall asleep.

  4. OH im so glad someone agrees this movie was shocking!
    i was waiting and waiting for it to get scary but i was let
    down with a bunch of crappy affects.not happy at all!

  5. I saw this in theaters and I was mad that I wasted $12. I didn't find it scary at all, didn't jump once (a lot of the "scares" were spoiled in the trailer!). I agree w/ you on it being boring and actually kinda funny.

  6. Yep, that's right. We need more than special effects to be scared. =)

  7. I kind of liked Blair Witch... This one is even more stupid.

  8. We agree on so many levels. =)

  9. Don't pass on this one. I want to hear your thoughts about it. Since you're both horror fans. =)

  10. It should be called spoiler, instead of trailer. If you see that, you've seen it all. =)

  11. OMG thank u. i saw this movie...HATED IT. After seeing the trailer and all of the "critics" raving about "one of the scariest movies of all time", i was like hellz yea sign me up...
    But after watching the movie i just don't get wasn't scary AT ALL!

  12. I haven't seen this yet. I don't like to see hyped movies right away. I get really annoyed if they don't live up to all of the hype. I wait a while and then rent it. It's much cheaper to rent and then I don't have to be annoyed by talkers. Plus I can make my own popcorn.

  13. I agree with that... For some movies. Some are just too cool to not go watch in theatre. =)
