You're kidding, right?

OK. It's not at all scary and there is no gore except for a bloody t-shirt at the end. It would be a "G" rated movie if they didn't use the f-word for half the dialog.

Here's a transcript of the whole movie. (pretty much verbatim, stretched out over 2 hours)

Guy: Haha, you're being stalked by a ghost.

Girl: [email protected]#$ you.

Guy: I bought a camera so we can see your ghost.

Girl: [email protected]#$ you.

Psychic: I'm a psychic! ooooo.... I feel something....evil. So, I'm going home now. Goodbye. (30 seconds of screen time)

Guy: Haha, you're talking to a psychic.

Girl: [email protected]#$ you.

Guy: Wow. That door closed on it's own. We should get a Ouija board.

Girl: [email protected]#$ you.

Guy: I got a Ouija board!

Girl: [email protected]#$ you.

Guy: Look it caught on fire (special effect #1) and now there's a demonic symbol on it. Help me decipher it.

Girl: [email protected]#$ you.

Guy: I put baby powder all over the hall, and now there's big frog footprints to your side of the bed. (special effect #2 - bad stop motion)

Girl: [email protected]#$ you.

Psychic: I just dropped in to say I'm still a psychic. (15 seconds of screen time)

Guy: Wow, something pulled you out of bed and we got it on film. (special effect #3)

Girl: [email protected]#$ you.

Guy: Honey, where are you going with that knife?

Girl: [email protected]#$ you.

Police : Police! Put down the knife! (bang!)

A Good Scary Movie

I recently watched this movie and since there has been so much hype about it i went in with high expectations and some what skeptical if i wud like but i am happy to say i did like it. The premise is simple but its the way it is presented is what makes it scary. I am not a big fan of jump scares and i believe a good horror movie should as few jump scares as possible and instead just create tension that can instil fear and that is what this movie does well. It is creepy in the sense it doesn't throw things in ur face , u just notice them on your own. Its breathtakingly fresh and original atleast to my knowledge since i have watched a lot of horror movies. Verdict : 7/10 i think it's a good horror movie and presents everything it had in a scary fashion. I knocked few points because i think it could have been made more scary with addition of few more scares and upgrade of soundtrack, but nevertheless i would still recommended it.

Plain boring

"Paranormal Activity" is one of those movies that you either love or hate I presume. It has amassed a huge cult following over the years. But to me personally this movie just didn't deliver. It was, dare I say, the most boring movie I've ever seen. Most of the time nothing happens and you're basically just watching a couple do mundane things. I guess one could argue that it makes the movie more "realistic". As the movie progressed the acting performances didn't quite attest to the supposed realism of the movie. What I mean by that is that there were a handful of scenes where the protagonists seemed to hold back a grin. As if they realized how ridiculous certain scenes were. Just to be fair about it; the acting wasn't the worst I've ever seen but it surely wasn't the best either. More on the weaker side of things.

The finale of the movie aka the ending did spook me with two consecutive jump scares but still. By that time I've already given up on the movie since it made me feel like I just wasted a significant amount of time (that could've been invested in a more meaningful way).

Final Verdict: The Blaire Witch project is apparently the only good movie that ever emerged from the "found footage" genre. Together with "The Poughkeepsie Tapes", that is.
