If you are a big fan of scary movies, you should definitely check out Paranormal Activity. I saw the commercials, which were especially creepy and scary, and when a copy was available at the library I hesitated at first, but then decided to watch it. I am glad that I didn’t watch it alone!
A young couple, Katie and Micah, move into a new home near San Diego and are wary of strange sounds and activity in the middle of the night. Trying to figure out what is exactly happening when they are asleep, Micah sets up a video camera to capture what goes bump in the night. Much of what the viewer sees is through the eyes of the camera. The events start out small – unexplained footsteps and doors closing themselves. But, as time goes on more ominus things start to happen to the couple. By the end of the movie the paranormal happenings escalate so much, you have no idea what is next and the ending is definitely shocking. The DVD contains an alternative ending which is worth watching too.
I am normally not a fan of horror films, but Paranormal Activity was a fun watch and scary movie. I checked out Paranormal Activity 2 which is a prequel to this movie that was just released and I will blog about it soon!
