      Paranormal Activity is a low budget, indie film. Shot in 2007, it was originally shown at various film festivals before being picked up by Paramount pictures.

      The film can greatly be compared to ‘The Blair Witch Project’. It is filmed in a documentary style and follows a young college couple as they purchase a new home. After living there a short time, various strange things begin to occur that lead the couple to believe the home is haunted. The boyfriend, Micah, is skeptical at first, while girlfriend Katie becomes quite paranoid. Katie becomes even more terrified when the strange happenings seem to center around her life.

      CAST:

      Katie Featherston as Katie Micah Sloat as Micah Mark Fredrichs as The psychic, Dr.


      Friedrichs

      The alleged haunting first becomes noticed as objects begin to move themselves around the home without any known cause. Soon, disturbing noises are heard, followed by cliche haunting manifestations such as disturbing noises and doors slamming, primarily in the dark. The couple seeks help from Dr. Fredrichs. When all hope seems gone, the couple sets up a video camera that captures what they believe to be disturbing activity, including a house fire. The point of origin of the house fire is an Ouija board that had been left in the living room.

      The couple sets up the camera in their bedroom at night in attempt to capture the paranormal activity on film and ultimately meet their demise.

      I have to ...


      • say that I had been excited to see the film, but did not go to see it at the big screen. Instead I rented it the day that it was issued for home rental release and I would like to say that it was the most wasted $3.50 I have ever spent.

        I found nothing at all frightening about the film, which literally consisted of nothing more than some banging noises and objects moving around in the dark, a fire, and a few seconds of gore towards the end of the flick. I’ve been more startled by cheesy 80s slasher B rate flicks than this highly grossing film.

        As previously mentioned, this film could easily be compared to “The Blair

        Witch Project” in the filming style and in the basic scripting. What’s supposed to be disturbing are the noises and happenings that occur in the dark - What cannot be seen by the audience. If you’re a person that is paranoid and very easily spooked, than this film may be for you. If you’re a die hard horror fan, then save your hard earned money for the real deal.

        This rated R flick is so lacking that I would quite easily allow my young children to watch it without worry about them becoming frightened or disturbed in any way - I’ve seen more frightening movies produced by Disney!! I do not recommend this film in any manner, unless you’re seeking suicide by boredom.
