If you don't go into it expecting them to set the new standard for horror movies, and just go in looking for a fun flick with a few really good screams, you'll enjoy it.

I would also recommend going on a weekend when you can guarantee there will be plenty of people in the theater. The experience I had was made more enjoyable by watching the crowd's reaction. Although you're always rolling the dice with that if your local theater doesn't crack down on talking and texting during the feature.

As someone who runs a movie theater, I can say that the reports of people leaving the movie in tears are true. We've had quite a bit of that.

If you liked the Blair Witch Project, you'll like this. Agree with the watching it in a theatre comment. The atmosphere made the movie.

You have to see it in a busy theater. The crowd experience is great.
See it late at night before you go to bed, I have heard a lot of people say they did not get scared until they tried to sleep.
If you believe in hauntings this movie will give you a couple good scares.

My daughter loves horror flicks and just told me today that this wasn't worth the time.

I'm not a fan of horror flicks AT ALL!

I watched it alone in my room (perhaps not by exactly legal means) alone with the lights off and couldn't sleep that night and I rarely actually find movies to be scary. If you watch it with a good audience or watch it alone, you will enjoy it and find it scary.

The movie bothers me when I'm laying down for bed. Makes me wonder what goes on in my house while I slumber.

Even though not 'great' I felt it was much better then Blair Witch Project. But kudos to the makers of the movie - such a return on investment - brilliant marketing.

Watched it late at night right before bed, slept like a baby. My sister watched it and she couldn't sleep at all that night. This is one of those movies you either love or hate. I found it kind of funny actually.

Blair Witch was a hype driven, cheesy ripoff that exploited the public's gullability. The film is still reviled today because it suckered millions out of their time and money, offering virtually nothing in return other than a feeling a chumpdom. The Last Broadcast was a better film in a similar vein but never had the pub behind it to get it going.

From the concensus so far, Paranormal Activity appears to be the same mockumentary formula dusted off for a retread (afterall, it's been 10 years since Witch and a whole new generation of dupes with money to burn await).

I'll wait for the DVD to see for myself.

for those thinking about going and watching this.... dont waste your money. While there were a couple of creepy parts, the majority of the crowd as we walked out were saying things like "that was stupid"," "what a waste of money". Have to say though, some people really were freaked out about it and others just laughed the whole time.

different strokes for different folks.. They milked everybody on this movie. I betcha you guys weren't aware that this movie came out 2 years ago?? You've been had if you paid to watch this movie. It's TERRIBLE! This movie proves that you can spend $10,000 and make millions by creating hype. The camera cost about half of the films budget the rest was advertisement.
