I saw this this afternoon with my wife. I laughed out loud HARD at this movie. It was so hilarious to me. The over macho boyfriend, the girl who'd been tormented all her life by demons.

I was lucky it was an empty-ish theater, because the scene with the powder had me rolling. Here comes the demon, it's coming in the room...and apparently its a giant CHICKEN! All i could think of was Peter Griffin fighting it throughout the city.

The ending was so predictable, from the moment Katie didn't want to leave and "everything's going to be all right now." we knew the dude was dead and she even had to "ATTACK THE CAMERA" at the very end to cut to black.

My God this movie was great!
:yawn:

Re: Paranormal Activity

I just checked out the alternate ending online. I dunno, I think I like it better. Sure the theatrical one has more "punch" and impact for a good theatrical ending but I like the tone and the... "realism" of this alternate one better.

^I agree with you guys. The alternate ending just didn't have any impact for me. I can see why they changed it and am glad they did.

I enjoyed the movie, but I sure am glad that I saw it before I read this thread. SPOILER CODE, people!

Re: Paranormal Activity

Well, it's probably not wise to read discussion about a movie you haven't seen, really.

Re: Paranormal Activity

I really enjoyed this movie (saw it Sunday night). Any movie that makes me scared to go to sleep the night I see it is a winner, despite some of the legitimate flaws others have mentioned. I should also note that I hadn't seen the trailer or any of the commercials, which probably helped - I had just heard it was a good BWP-style movie filmed in a house instead of the woods. So I really didn't have any expectations one way or another going into it.

And, I know lots of people have pointed it out, but Kate's rack was just magnificent. I just assumed that the demon was into her because he had a boob fetish.

Considering he linked with her when she was a child, though.

But, yeah, she had a nice boobage.

We even got a nice gratuitous cleavage shot.

Re: Paranormal Activity

It just got released in Britian today. I've just come back from seeing it tonight.

Skimming through this thread kinda makes me sad, I guess a lot of you would prefer your horror films to be more the likes of Final Destination 4 or Michael Bay's many remakes (Texas Chainsaw, Amityville, Friday 13th etc)
Constant in your face shite

When leaving the cinema with a busy crowd you always hear various comments. It seemed to be that all those voices saying "that was shit" were from male teenagers. And what do they know?... Fuck all!
One guy said "that wasn't a film", Jesus give me a break. Just piss off and watch your Revenge of the Fallen and never bother me again


Its a pretty creepy film to watch, and plus I didn't really know anything about it at all. (I always avoid hype now for films, didn't even watch the trailer for this)
But as others have said its more the feeling afterwards... I'm gonna be staying up late tonight

Well to be fair, a lot of that could have been plain old-fashioned male bravado. Some of those guys probably screamed like schoolgirls. But they'd rather die than admit it.

Re: Paranormal Activity

Yeah, I'm in total agreement with Ethros. I thought it was effective enough. It doesn't reinvent the genre or anything like that, but a few people made a creepy little movie and it works.

Score one for the little guy. Though I suspect he won't be little for much longer.
