Paranormal Activity is the biggest success story of the year, maybe ever in film? The film was made for only sexual favors, and has now made over 100 million dollars! I haven’t seen the movie but I probably won’t see this when it comes out on video. I heard the ending is the best part, so why sit through something for an hour and a half, only to see the best stuff at the end for 5 minutes…and stuff that appears in the trailer too? But Paramount clearly did something right with the marketing and suckered the people in. But in the end, all this movie really is Blair Witch 3 just minus the shaky camera.
The “truly scary” (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times), edge-of-your-seat horror film PARANORMAL ACTIVITY will make its presence known on DVD and two-disc Blu-ray December 29, 2009 from Paramount Home Entertainment. Hailed as “a horror phenomenon” (Richard Corliss, Time) and “one of the scariest movies of all time” (BloodyDisgusting.com) the hypnotic and harrowing film drove filmgoers to demand that it play in their cities, ultimately earning over $100 million at the domestic box office. Loaded with suspense and punctuated by moments of sudden and unexpected horror right up to the shocking ending, PARANORMAL ACTIVITY is more frightening to watch at home, even with the lights on.
Written and directed by Oren Peli, the intense and chilling story follows a young, middle-class couple who become increasingly disturbed by a presence that may or may not be demonic, but is certainly most active in the middle of the night. Especially while they sleep. The DVD and two-disc Blu-ray include the original theatrical version of the film, plus an unrated version with a shocking alternate ending not seen in theaters. The Blu-ray also includes a digital copy of the theatrical version.
