I got really excited when I first heard about Paranormal Activity. It's a low budget horror film, and the early buzz claimed it was the scariest movie of the past decade. I love seeing what people can do with shoestring budgets, and I haven't been scared by a movie since I was a teenager, so I was stoked to see it. My husband and I managed to see it before the nationwide release, and we came away with mixed reactions. We really enjoyed it, but all the hype had raised our expectations. We weren't the least bit frightened by the movie. Then again, it might scare the daylights out of an average viewer--the audience was certainly scared. We aren't exactly normal. ;)



KT fell short of the goal to get a bonus comic this month, but everyone tried so hard to get it there. So I made free icons! Be sure to go back and check them out if you missed them.

Ahh,the doorbanging scene from "The Haunting"(not the crappy remake,the awesome original)Now that was a scary movie but when you get down to it all that happened was something banged on a door and wrote in chalk on a wall.

Which ending of the film did you get to see, since you saw it before the nationwide release?

I think the best part of that movie, hands down, was the reaction of the people in the theatre; we had girls behind us screaming through the "scary" parts. :)

I have to agree about those three-toed footprints! Pretty silly, if you ask me.

The ending we saw is the one used in the nationwide release. The original ending sounded lame, but I'd be interested to see the alternate ending used in some of the test screenings. I'm hoping all three will be included on the DVD.

That used to happen to me when I'd stay up late watching Friday the 13th marathons. Jason doesn't scare me anymore, but back in the day he creeped me out. But nothing was as bad as my post-Grudge spookout, LMAO.

Hahaa, chicken feet! I'd high-five Brightly for his comment about shaky camerawork, but I'm not sure how one high-fives a hooved character. :D

I'd totally see a movie called Paranormal Shenanigans.

I still think The Grudge was hilarious. XD Kris and I had our own MST3K going on that one.

I was going to have Minty tell Brightly that the movie didn't even have that much shaky camera work, but I totally ran out of space. :P My award for Most Vertigo-Inducing Movie EVAR still goes to Saving Private Ryan. o_O

That really should have been the name of the movie. "Heeey, who moved my car keys?!"

Movies tend not to scare me while I'm watching them, but I tend to get freaked out after it's over, just like in the comic.

Though I have to admit I thought Uzumaki was creepy as hell, and I felt sorta unsettled after watching it, despite the fact the concept is utterly ridiculous and they used screen fades with silly sound effects for a good portion of the movie. Though I wouldn't exactly say the movie scared me.

The Ring, on the other hand, did scare me a bit during the movie. (But, interestingly, not after it.) I've had Ringu for years but have never watched it, because I sort of figure it'll probably freak me out.
