Paranormal Activity is one of the best horror films I have seen on the screens after a while. It is definitly worth a watch if you are looking for some exciting thrill.
Shot in the same way as the Blair Witch Project was made, Paranormal Activity builds up the fear with a sense of realism that will leave you petrified.

The first half hour may seem rather slow as we explore the day-to-day life of this couple. They have a big house, are happily loving each other and experience fears when they hear unusual sounds in the night. However, this slow build-up serves to make us comfortable with this pair of characters. We can even start to identify with them as all of us might have experienced these sort of fears at one point in our lives.
The tension never stops to increase throughout the movie. In fact, the last scenes are the most frightening ones. They leave you wondering if you can ever get home after the show and sleep peacefully.
This film proves once again that the best scare can come from the lowest budget films. I agree with Michael Dequina who wrote: “Fun, creepy, unpretentious little haunted house rides like these are so hard to come by these days that slight overpraise is understandable.”
