Paranormal Activity

Saw a review of this movie the other day and thought I'd share with you

Paranormal Activity is a 2007 independent horror film written and directed by Oren Peli. The movie premiered at the Screamfest Film Festival in the U.S. on October 14, 2007, and was shown at the Slamdance Film Festival on January 18, 2008. The movie received a limited release in several U.S. cities on October 9, 2009, and had a nationwide release on October 16, 2009. The movie centers on a young couple, Katie and Micah, who are haunted by a supernatural presence in their home. The movie is presented in a documentary style, using footage from the camera set up by the couple to capture what is haunting them, in a similar manner to The Blair Witch Project, and The Last Broadcast. It has set the record as the most profitable independent film ever made having earned over $100 million with a production budget of $15,000.Interesting
What make it interesting for me?
The genre obviously
Independent film created largely by the writer's collaboration with the producer
Unknown actors
Is of the moment as it reaches out to many who have used hand-held cameras whilst conducting their own ghost hunts
Is unnerving as even those of us who have taken part in videoing ghost hunts have probably never considered filming our own bedroom at night whilst we sleep
All in all a really scary movie!
Watch the trailer and let me know what you think
