Don’t you just love those movies that are made with a budget under 100,000 dollars and kick the shit out of most other movies that have huge budgets. Flashback to 1999 when the little movie The Blair Witch Project came out. A film that was originally produced with around 16,000 dollars and blew everyone away. Then there is movies like the upcoming Jame’s Cameron’s Avatar which has a budget of 288,000,000 Washingtons. Man, we are all praying that movie will be good, not for our sake, but for his.
But I digress, apparently the movie Paranormal Activitiy, which is included in that low budget movie market, made with only 11,000 dollars, premiered at the Screamfest Film Festival in 2007 and at the Slamdance Film Festival in 2008, and has been released at limited theaters this month. The movie has been receiving extremely high ratings from fans and critics scoring a 94% on Rotten Tomatoes.
The website (here) claims that if a million people demand it, then we will be seeing it nationwide. I looked around on the website and it has a trailer which was actually pretty interesting. I’ts refreshing seeing a movie made that doesn’t have any over the top special effects and CG and is done with just pure physical effects. I insist on visiting the site and demanding it, I would love to see this movie in theater
Most scary movies don’t have any effect on me and I am begging to find one which doesn’t have the same basic theme going on with the word ‘The’ and then a noun as the title of the movie. For example: The Eye, The Uninvited, The Unborn, etc… and don’t make me mention all the Hauntings and Exorcism movies…
The movie is centered around a couple in their new home, the wife seems to think there is paranormal activity going on at night in their bedroom, so her husband sets up a Nightvision camera. The movie is spread over 3 weeks of the filming at night. So demand it! I want to see the conclusion.
