A young couple suspects that their house is haunted by a malevolent entity. They set up video surveillance to capture evidence of what happens at night as they sleep.
Their surveillance and home videos have been edited into the 99 minute feature film "Paranormal Activity".

I have been tracking this film since it's release about 1.5 years ago and still have not heard about it's distribution. Apparently Dreamworks bought the rights to the movie after a short run on the west coast, but they haven't moved on it from what I know.

Anyone hear anything?

I watched the trailer for this movie last week and I'm just not sure about it. Anyone else want to give your opinion on the possible filming style? I mean is this trailer just being awkward or do you think this is how the whole movie is going to be presented? I'm hoping the former.

It doesn't look like too bad of a movie. I think it looks the way it does just for the preview.

I wonder if it really is being released. I have been tracking this for two years now, and ever since dreamworks bought it I was afraid the original would never be shown.

Ah, but a catch, only in a few cities.

You can go to the movie's official site and 'demand' that it be shown in at least a city near you. I've seen this kind of thing happen with other movies, where they don't release it nationwide.

It is getting good press...

Paranormal Activity': Do midnight sell-outs suggest it's the next 'Blair Witch'?
October 1, 2009

Producer Jason Blum spent nearly two years bringing the ultra-low-budget thriller "Paranormal Activity" to theaters. "It finally feels," he says, "like we're entering the third act."

When Blum saw long lines snaking around the ArcLight Hollywood last weekend for midnight showings of writer-director Oren Peli's $15,000 tale of things that go bump in the night, he choked up. Had he visited the box offices selling tickets for this coming weekend's late-night showings, Blum might start bawling like a baby.

Paranormal After taking the movie to a dozen college towns for a series of midnight-only screenings last week, Paramount Pictures is cautiously expanding the film's release, adding another 21 cities. The film will be shown in midnight-only screenings on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night, and theater owners say few seats are left for many showings. The ArcLight (which has other late-night screenings besides midnight) already has sold out many of this weekend's shows.

"The sales are incredible," says Maurice Peel, a manager at Santa Cruz's Nickelodeon & Del Mar Theatres. "We are looking to sell out every show this weekend."

"People are coming from Pittsburgh, Indianapolis -- four or five hours away," says Eric Brembeck, the owner of the Studio 35 Cinema & Drafthouse in Columbus, Ohio. The demand for "Paranormal Activity" is so strong, Brembeck says, that he's thinking of finally getting an online ticketing service for his 300-seat auditorium.

"I haven't seen anything like this for a long time," says Michael Stockhaus, a senior manager at the AMC Loews Universal Cineplex 20 in Orlando. "The level of excitement -- I can't compare it to anything. You just didn't see it coming."

I saw Paranormal Activity this past weekend, on Saturday at a 1am showing. The 3 previous showings(12am, 12:15am, 12:45am) were all sold out as well was this one. Must mention that the only showings of this movie were between 12am-1am.

The movie itself was not bad and I rather enjoyed it. Like the Blair Witch Project, it is shot using a single camera that is either being handheld or on a tri-pod. Not as shakey as Blair Witch tho. I am not a fan of horror movies because I do not find any of the stuff believable and they are usually over the top. This movie on the other hand was very believable and quite well done. Of course there were holes in the story and things that didnt make sense, but all and all would definately reccomend seeing it if it is available in your area. I can say this, lots of people in the theatre got scared at many times in the movie and some were visable shaken afterwards(women mostly).

If any readers would like a breakdown of the movie, I would be happy to do so. Just post here if you would like me to.

I just got in from seeing this movie. I loved it. It starts off slow but it gets to be pretty creepy. There were a few parts that made the hair on the back of my neck stand on end...in fact, right now thinking about the movie is making it stand up again. I think they did a great job with this movie.

I think it was filmed in 2007 but just now released.

I just saw the movie it gave me goosebumps it was good and it looked real. There were ghost hunting techniques done in the movie. But hollywood sure supplies a lot of the energy to get those effects.
