I've never really been one for scary movies, but ever since I watched Paranormal Activity last week, I cannot stop watching them. I was so against watching it, but I figured I'd have a good time with a bunch of my girlfriends who get equally freaked as I do.
I LOVED IT.
It was very Blair Witch-esque (oh I also watched that a few weeks ago too) by the handheld, doc style filming. The actors were also very believable as a young couple dealing with DEMONS. Like Blair Witch, they were given the basic plot of the scene they'd be shooting, then while they were improv-ing lines the crew would add the "effects" and sometimes they didn't know it would even happen. Everything was shot in director Oren Peli's actual home...I mean I would never want to live there again afterwards but whatever. The whole film felt very real which made it scary because it was as if any of it could easily happen to you. Although I would recommend the alternate ending instead; the original was a little too unrealistic and not as scary basically while the alternate was just freakin creepy.
Then the next night I needed a thrill fix, so it was The Exorcist on netflix instant. WHICH WAS SCARY. Ughuhuhuh during the ending I was sitting there with my hands on my face like 'what the heck is going on' and then he jumped OUT THE WINDOW UGH WHAT? So confused for a while after it ended but now I get it. Definitely freaky and weird. A++ for Linda Blair.
So now I've looked up and added a few more movies to my netflix queue; I kind of like being spooked :)
