Paranormal Activity Sparks Panic Attacks In Italy

This movie frankly sucked. I cant believe i payed 10$ to go watch it when it came out.

I was laughing the whole time, it was more of a comedy than anything else.

Not scary at all, and I correctly guessed what would happen at the end about halfway through.

I can´t understand why it has been hailed as one of the scariest movies ever. Worthless...not only do I regret the money spent, but the 90 mins. of my life I´ll never get back.

No one held a gun to your head and made you guys watch it. I personally didn't mind watching it. It wasn't the scariest movie i've ever seen, but I can see why a small minded person would think this is scary. the good thing is the amount of hype they were able to get behind the film. It's a marketing masterpiece.

The funniest thing is the amount of Italians being scared by this, when a simple Google search will show you that the movie was not real.

What does that have to do with it? Are we not allowed to comment negatively on something?

I'm gonna be the odd one out on this one (nothing new there   lol) but I've seen a lot of movies over the last year and I thought it was great movie, I really enjoyed it. Sure I've seen scarier, but not in recent times. That its just a movie is obvious, but I always find horror movies with demons/evil spirits much more believable than zombie or unstoppable mass murder/slasher flicks, which of course are entertaining in their own way.

However, I just wish that Paranormal Activity would have gotten more into why her.

The same scenes were played with Blair Witch, people in the US fainting and screaming etc.
I thought the film was crap (though did get a little scared a few weeks later when taking the dogs for a walk thru the woods and started seeing the symbols made out of wood attached to 2 trees, I may have run away lol)

When the production company's marketing department says it's the scariest movie ever, that automatically makes me know it isn't...


I was entertained, but definitely not scared. I am glad I rented it though...wasn't worth the movie theater pricing, but I enjoed the $1 Redbox price, and felt it was worth that.

Of course you are. But what's the point of crying about not getting your $10 back or crying about losing 2 hours of your life that you'll never get back?    No one forced you to watch it. You did it on your own terms.

True. Those two movies, were very original and scary. I liked 28 weeks later better.

You do understand the concept "figure of speech" right?

The only thing I felt after watching that movie was immensely ripped off.
