Paranormal activity


WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU SLEEP?

You snore...

Cockroaches jog around their nocturnal domain - your kitchen sink...

An occasional geriatric security strolls the street, tapping his stick...

BPO guy takes a puff,gulps a tea & gets back to his chat...

Neelmetal fanalca staff scrape the rainwater-corroded roads...


well..."What happens when you sleep?" is the tag-line of the most talked about horror movie of the year - Paranormal activity.
In this movie, a demon??!! haunts the lead character Katie and her boyfriend helps her by capturing its paranormal activity on video camera, while they sleep. The film maker Oren Peli has tried his hand to tap into a man's most primal fear of "If something is lurking in your home there's not much you can do about it".

The whole movie is made in a documentary format , with a handheld camcorder recorded by the lead actor and without any background score that usually enhance the eerie feel for a
horror movie. After a particular point, it gets very monotonous, with footages of the self-shot nights , and the useless demon really doing nothing, rather than sneaking into the bedroom and occasionally banging the door and howling.

It seems that famous script writers of Hollywood walked out of the screening of this movie, because they were scared and Spielberg is said to have loved this movie. It has set the record as the most profitable independent film ever made, having earned over $100 million with a production budget of $15,000.

Dunno why, but this doesn't strike a chord for viewers like me, who are used to scary ghosts and spine-chilling background scores. The same hollywood that literally laughed at "The Grudge", because it was remade from a Japanese movie, hails Paranormal activity, a master-piece.

Wondering who's not normal...
