Last night I heard grown men scream

Saturday, October 24

We went to see Paranormal Activity last night in Lancaster. The theater was PACKED. There were people in the seat to my left and people in Brian's seat on the right. Very scary.




There's no blood or guts. Just the kind of scary ideas that you think about while lying awake in bed. Footprints in powder, doors moving, lights turning on, burned pictures in your attic. Subtle things that would freak you out in real life.

Brian's such a cynic about these types of movies but I thought it was really effective. The entire theater was in an uproar in the last minute of the movie. No kidding.

I admit it was a little 'Blair Witchy' but what's more scary than being haunted in the woods? Being haunted in your own home of course. It's more relateable.

The entire movie was made for something like $11,000 in 2007 and has now grossed $20 million since last weekend. If you are the kind of person who is afraid of being alone in the dark (like me:) beware of seeing this movie.

I am so avoiding this one - I wouldn't be able to sleep for weeks I'm sure!

I want to see it but knowing that there were grown men screaming ...hummm.
I do love the fact that there is no gore...
Thanks for the review.

Hi, I am a subscriber of Grosgrain, but just now noticed your link to this other blog and am wondering if you live near Lancaster PA???? Which Lancaster? I know there is one in CA too... I live in northern MD and go to Lancaster now and again.....

I refuse to watch this. Well, I generally refuse to watch any scary movie. Ha ha!

This was the scariest movie I have ever seen... I covered my eyes for a lot of it.
