This weekend I was in Tucson, Arizona for a special screening of the horror movie Paranormal Activity. It's a haunted house affair and is playing in select cities right now.
It's the scariest movie I've ever seen.
I've never been so scared by a movie before, and I've seen a lot of movies, friends. There's a lot of talk and hype floating around about this flick, but let me be clear: this movie delivers in spades and it will screw you up.
I saw it Saturday night/Sunday morning at a 12:01 screening, and I've been having trouble sleeping ever since because of it. I'm not kidding around. I'm almost 30 years old now and I've been sleeping with all the lights on.
If you like the show "Ghost Hunters", the 1963 version of The Haunting, The Innocents, The Exorcist, The Entity, or Stanley Kubrick's version of The Shining, then I highly recommend finding Paranormal Activity wherever it's playing and watching the shit out of it.
It's a horror movie that will stay with you. I can honestly say it's scarier than all of those movies put together. Yes, sure, it's from the old-school, less-is-more approach to ghost stories, but those are the ones that always linger in the mind and deep in the soul long after the final reel has run through the projector.
This movie feeds on your fears.
It will fuck you up.
