As with any horror flick from the US I found Paranormal Activity to be a good film but not as scary as the hype (Rec is far more terrifying). The premise of a "true story" taken only from the video camera found police is now a well tested genre (Blair Witch, Cloverfield) and the effect used in the film are clever. If the objective of the sometimes plodding storyline was to lull the viewer into a false sense of security before more big bangs and scares then it worked.
The ending feels like it… Read Full Review

I love horror movies, so this was a great one for me! It was scary and fun too. A bit boring at times (in the middle when it got a bit stagnant) but the ending was worth waiting for! i mean, there have other more boring horror movies that you just get irritated by, but this wasn't one of those.
fun to watch while you're with friends, in a dark room, with pizza! :)

The film took a while to get to the good bits. Great for scaring children and my boyfriend, although I didnt find it all that scary.
Loved how they made it look real, didnt love the rather iffy plot… Read Full Review

I had wanted to watch Paranormal Activity for quite some time. I noticed it was out on DVD, so grabbed myself a copy.
Settling down to watch it with some friends, we were all aware of the hype, but kept an open mind.
Scary? Tense? Thrilling? Yes! All of the above. I watch a lot of movies, and horror is one of my favourite genres. I wasn't disappointed with this movie.
Story was pretty simple, a nice enough couple living in a flat, and the girl is pretty much being stalked by "something"… Read Full Review

An inspired pine-chiller cam cord movie. Some genuinely chilling moments but definitely over hyped.I enjoyed this movie, but I expected from the reviews for it to be more frightening than it actually was. There's some brave parts in the plotting. The movie starts out slow, it has two protagonists one who's a believer [Katie], the other who's a natural cynic [Micah].
My conclusion is in tick offs to your preference:
Worth a rental? I'd say yes.
Frightening? probably no.
Inspired? Kinda… Read Full Review

Of all the horror movies I watched so far, Paranormal Activity definitely proves to be different. With its actors and quality of the movies, it seems to be realistic, and this has an impact on the audience. it seems to add a little more to the scare. Its a slow movies about a couple who have close encounters with a demon, and in order to ward it away, decide to catch it on the camera, but unfortunately, neither of them know what their dealing with. it has a good story line, and there are some… Read Full Review

I was aware of this film from the hype in the US, and couldn't wait for it to open in the UK. I recently got a chance to see it, and I wasn't disappointed. It's amazing how tense the film was, given the fact that it's all filmed in one house, with the majority of the scenes filmed in the bedroom, showing spooky happenings while the haunted couple are asleep.
I thought it was really clever, and quite jumpy. However, I would say that it didn't quite live up to the scenes shown in the… Read Full Review
