Back in the day, The Blair Witch Project scared the shit out of me. I know it shouldn’t have, but I have a certain thing about being alone in the woods at night. And that thing is that it scares the shit out of me.
Paranormal Activity seemed on the same trajectory with it’s marketing push of found footage and weird crap taking place. And it pretty much delivered on that promise.
It was sufficiently creepy and well paced enough that I was mostly on edge for the whole movie. Was it the scariest thing I’ve ever watched? No (see aforementioned Blair Witch Project), but it was a good little horror movie and I’m glad I saw it.
Now if you’ll excuse me I have a few lights to turn on.
