The movie Paranormal Activity is out on DVD now.  Needless to say I had to rent it just to see what the big deal was about this flick, and I must admit I was not really all that impressed. It’s not really the makers fault either. I suppose in its own right, it maybe a good movie. Here’s the thing though. When you as a person hype a movie, and make comments like “That was the scariest thing ever”, It builds up expectations. Now, that might sound like a good thing, but it’s not! What happens is, I start watching this expecting to get scared out of my pants, and am treated to people waking up and finding a trail of footprints through baby powder.

Hardly a scary movie experience. In fact, I believe Cloverfield was a dozen times more scary, and the blair witch project was twice as scary.

As for if the movie was any good? Well, the chick that played the girlfriend was friggin hot. So it got bonus points for that. However that’s about where the bonus points ends. I don’t know. Like I said, it wasn’t bad. Although my opinion of it could be blurred slightly because I really dislike those hand-held movie style flicks. They start causing me motion sickness after a while.

The acting also wasn’t really that good. The only one who seemed to be able to act even in the slightest was Katie Featherston, and to be honest, the only time her acting was REALLY good, was when she was acting mad or pissed off. Which actually made me wonder if she might be a very angry person normally.

Anyway, Bottom line: Was it any good? If I did enjoy that style of movie? If I hadn’t had my expectations raised so high? Then yea, maybe it was a good movie. I guess it’s worth a rental. Hell, you should watch it for the hotness of Katie Featherston alone!
