out of the bag, the "following" thing was one of my favourite bits (big lob silliness and first posting shenanigans aside). <p> It's super clever that the demon/ghost/boogeyman is tied to the girl rather than the house, because while the oldschool scares are very Poltergeist-y, you don't get the escape of just leaving the house and everything being allright - there's NO escape for the poor girl because this thing is tied to HER. So, cool story point, and cool plot mechanism to ratchet up the suspense even more, because every time things escalate, you know she can't just shut the door behind her and be done with it. Loved it!

Didn't you have a hamster that died in unusual (ahem) circumstances? I vaguely remember some thread that went very pear-shaped a coupla years ago or something...

ENOUGH ALREADY! Wake up people! AICN is on PARAMOUNT'S PAYROLL. It's a fact. Ask around. Why do you think they hyped up crappy GI.JOE and now PARANORMAL ACTIVITY so much? AICN are not geeks fighting the system. They are the system.

I have a copy of this movie that I "obtained" (legally-ish) a little while ago. I watched the movie on my own in the house late at night, under the influence of some really good wine.<p> I am a 34 year old male and I had to sleep with the damned light on! This scared the beejesus out of me.<p> See it!

I really enjoyed it, and the packed house got really into it. If you let yourself buy into the premise, this will be the scariest movie you will have seen in years.

It wasn't the scariest movie I've ever seen. I wasn't scared or terrified. But the film was damned creepy. And it did spook me a little. Overall, I did really enjoy it, and want to see it again ASAP.<p> I think this film should be recommended for everyone, especially horror fans. However, the film is gonna receive a major backlash, like Blair Witch and Open Water, because of all the hyperbole surrounding it.

Look at Shakes' post, and all the plant crying naysayers who haven't even seen it yet in every other P.A. thread so far. <p> When they grow up they're all going to join the Catholic League of Decency or whatever they're called.

I watched Man on Wire last night. Holy Shit that thing made me queasy (both from the stress of the 'heist' stuff AND the vertigo stuff) and I was sitting on the bloody lounge! Not what I expected from ostensibly a documentary!

Please bring it to Philly! (I already did the website deal, but anyone else in the Philly area, request it, we are 9th out of 10 on the damn list! What is that shit? Represent!)

A full house at the Neptune midnight showing. It was pretty obvious the people there had very little clue what this was about (including some jackass who brought two little girls who couldn't have been more than ten years old). <P> I heard a couple of girls talking about staying over at each others' house 'cause they were afraid to go home alone. My girlfriend was up until 5 in the morning. It rally is unsettling... I don't think I've ever actually heard an audience whimper with tension before.<P> I understand there will be people pissing on this movie as a Blair Witch ripoff (many of whom will do so without actually seeing the fucking thing), but it's much more suspenseful throughout the whole movie than Blair Witch was.

how'd it go with the 5 year old twins at paranormal activity? are they scared for life? my wife made us go to sleep with the light on after seeing it. i wasn't that scared, but if i were 5 and saw it, i'm pretty sure i'd never go to sleep again.

to all the people who think this is scary - Go watch "Ghost Hunters" with Jason & Grant on A&E. It's about the same quality of ghost sightings, yet less boring. This is a cheap, inferior knock-off on "Blair Witch". And I wish people would stop encouraging this "home video" style. If this was a High School film project (which it sure does look like) I would say "not bad." I find it hard to believe that a MAJOR studio is backing this - an amateur video by a first-time director, starring first-time actors? Someone high up must be getting blackmailed.
