This is stereotyping but I swear my black friends always get torrents before anyone else and yesterday was no exception when Antionette brought me her copy of "Paranormal Activity."
"Dude, it's fuckin' awesome. One of the best scary flix I've seen in awhile."
Now anyone else, I'd be like "whatever" but Antionette is a horror freak like myself so when she makes claims like that....I listen.
Nick cried "bullshit" when I popped it in last night as he is so jaded and quite the skeptic when it comes to his fright flix, but 30 minutes in and we were both on the edge of our seats. To say they did the most with the least is an incredible understatement. The direction and the use of just one camera puts you so deep in the story that you forget you're NOT watching a documentary.
"Blair Witch" wishes it could've acheived what "Paranormal" totally nails. I've never been so afraid of a "shot" before in a movie. Everytime it switched to the bedroom...you know shit's about to go down and the hairs on the back of my neck stood on edge for the last 30 minutes.
SEE THIS MOVIE!!!!!
