Paranormal Activity

with 7 comments

I watched Paranormal Activity with Buttons last night, all curled up under my sheets.
Everyone around me has been telling me how freaky it is,
and even Button’s elder brother said that it’s really worth watching.
According to Buttons, his brother is like the Guru of all horror flicks,
so if he said that it’s good, it definitely won’t be anywhere near bad.

So after mustering all my courage, we finally got together to watch the show in the middle of the night.

To be honest, I was hiding behind the sheets half the time.
And used the blanket to cover my entire face, revealing only 2 square centimeters at the corner of my eye to watch.
That’s really how freaky it is!

The sound effects used in the movie is very minimal.
There are no gory scenes and not much sudden movements to shock you,
but it is THAT exact silence and stillness that makes you imagine so much that you’re freaking yourself out.

After watching the movie, I’m secretly happy that I live in a HDB.
I think I’ll be freaked out at every corner if I live in a house as big as the one in the movie.
Like what Buttons said, “Imagine if they have a version shot in a HDB flat, it’ll really scare the shit out of us!”
I totally agree!

The amazing thing is, this movie is only shot with a US$15,000 budget!
I’m sure it is already making millions of dollars by now.
Well, it shows that low budget and indie movies can be fantastic as well.
I shall invest a video camera and start filming right away.

Just kidding.

I rate Paranormal Activity 5 Sweaty Armpits!

  2. I like to watch movies sort of like footage , something similiar like the blair witch project eons ago….

    As i heard, there are 2 diff ending for paranormal activities –

    1) Katie(posessed) kills Micah, police kills katie in a very silly act.

    2) Almost everything is the same, except the police coming after some days, the same night after killing the boyfriend you can hear footsteps from the stairs. And suddenly someone is thrown at the camera in the bedroom. Then you see Katie in front, holding a knife and having blood splattered over here singlet. She moves slowly ahead and lie down, looks in to the camera and makes a sudden, freaky, strong, angry noise to the camera that sets the movie to an end.

  3. There are actually 3 versions of ending, and by the way, i think they already made 100 million, and it has an interesting story how it came to see daylight though it was made in 2007, it made a long, interesting journey before going on big screen.

    and steven spielberg is convinced it is cursed.

    quite an interesting story: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paranormal_Activity_(film)

    and what are u gonna film!?!?!

    horror or……. giggles

    anyway, that night, couple of nights after watching the show, someone who was lying in bed stood up and just stood next to my bed when i was using the computer in the middle of the night for a good few couple of minutes.

    i turned back and got a rude shock and had hair standing on my arms lah.
