Paranormal Activity Review

Micah and Katie set up a camera in their house, believing that their house is haunted. Only it isn't the house that is haunted, it is Katie. This film surprised me; it wasn't as predictable as I thought it was going to be. The film concentrated a lot on Character development, for the first half of the movie, not too much paranormal action happens, you are more focused on learning about this couple, and getting to know their personality. As the movie goes on, and as the paranormal occurrences progress, you can notice a big change in the characters, especially Katie, She went from being this happy-go-lucky person, to someone who is miserable and mentally exhausted. What makes this movie "Scary" is that from the film promotions you are to believe that this house is haunted, but you learn early on in the film that it is not the house that is being haunted, it is Katie. There is no getting away from it. The Movie spans out over 20 Nights, The first few nights, the activity is minimal, if anything at all, but it still leaves you nail-biting because you are sitting there in the dark, and silence, waiting and expecting something to jump out, it still gets your heart thumping. After the first few nights the activity gets worse and worse and start to get physical. This isn't your typical "Ghost Story" movie. This film is a cross from "The Blair Witch Project" and "The Exorcist". This is a great film to see with your friends, or to watch cuddled up on the couch with the lights off. The only complaint I have about this movie is the ending. It is definitely worth the Watch.
