    ive seen most of the PA movies and yeah, they're silly, but I got enjoyment from them from what they are. An example of one thing that sticks out to me was the scene from the 1st one where the wife gets up in the middle of the night and shambles over to the husbands side of the bed and stands there 'watching' him and the footage does a time lapse revealing that she hovered over him for hours! I got chills seeing that and it pretty well sums up what those movies did well.

    The sinister movie would be so much better if bagel man was a bait and the father killed the family in order to write his book

    With Paranormal Activity the third movie is set around the 80's and the grandmother or great grandmother made a pact with a demon to gain wealth or some shit so chronologically it goes 3, 2 until near the end, 1, ending of 2, 4 and I guess the boy in 4 is the baby from 2. So the whole thing is this deamons attached to them and wants what it was promised

    That being said it is jump cut central and very boring

    I think the idea of an invisible intruder that can't be fought and attacks you in your sleep is what keeps the audience engaged. They essentially spend their time looking for signs of a ghost in the shots where literally nothing happens. There's also the "mysterious" motivations of the cult and demon that mayb4 interests people.

    I'm having a hard time remembering any jump scares from the first 3 paranormal activity movies. Except the ending of the first one, the kitchen closets opening in the second one and... don't think i remember a single one in 3. It's shit like sinister and conjuring that are more about jump scares

    I think it's the ambience and atmosphere that makes these movies creepy, but that's just my subjective opinion. I'm glad they stopped making them after "Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension", though, because that's the movie where they actually started showing the demon on camera and that just killed all the tension ,creepiness and suspense of the unknown/unseen in the five "Paranormal Activity" movies before "Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension".

    For me I like the movies purely for the continuation of the story, they each build on each other and fill out the cannon, but yes they definitely are not scary, but I think people just watch them for the sake of completeness... The marked ones is the most original one out of the bunch...

    jump "scares" dont even scare me, they just piss me off. Even the ones in this review pissed me off. Its like a stupid ass friend who jumps out from behind a door to scare you. Its not clever or funny, it just makes me wish i had a gun to pull out and shoot you for being a jackass. Now that would be funny!

    People who like to take their girlfriends or boyfriends to crappy jump scare movies while they text on the phone for half the movie about banging somebody else for the night or getting high or drunk.
    Same old shit, different generation... though we're just starting to see the beginnings of Idiocracy, the modern movie Bible of what will happen to our country and probably a lot sooner than we think... good luck everybody!

    Yeah P4 needs more shaky cam, stick men, piles of rocks, and up the nose camera angles. But seriously of coarse the series made profit, they sold tickets to something you can get for free on TheXvid, tons of "startle" videos out there. Easy to make money when you sell shit in a box.

  • Adolf Hipster

    i think "Baguul" is based on the boogieman. which gets its name from the middle english "Bugbear" refering to a goblin/scarecrow like mythological creature that ate children. every culture has its version. even the judeo/christian faiths have Lilith, who was said to be at fault for the death of young children and miscarriages. its a pretty easy link to make from baguul to boggieman. esspecially considering the eating children part. was still an awful movie tho.

    I thought that Sinister started off quite well. I think the first 40-45 minutes were great. It was very creepy, but I was hoping that there would be a human killer. The Monet when I realised it was a supernatural horror, I was so disappointed.

  • pulkmees
    pulkmees 11 months ago

    Only the first Paranormal Activity works. And it works because it's subtle. It actually builds up to the end. It also works because is it doesn't have the perfect jumpscares like the later movies. Also the fact that it's a regular house with normal people makes it relatable. It could happen in your own house. Yes, obviously everyone knows it's a movie, but it doesn't take a lot to believe it's an actual house. Look how much you have to convince people on an actual horror movie. The sequels fuck all of this up though.

    Sinister began really well but when the killer turned out to be a demon it went down hill for me and ended poorly. It would have been much better if the killer was a Zodiac Killer type human maybe even with mild psychic abilities and it kept its creepy serial killer vibe all the way to the end.

    • Casualite

      You see, with the prominence of Christianity, the worlds of most horror movies in our world is treated as if the Christian world-view is the standard. If you've ever read Paradise Lost (John Milton), he depicts the ancient Greek and Egyptian gods as demons who used their angelic powers to gain followers and turn them away from God. Baal, Lucifer, Beezelbul, Mammom, they were empowered as angels, and now pervert their intended skills as demons. That explains why they are supernaturally powerful, spiritual, and in a sense, makes them more devious. Why are they evil? In a Christian context, just because. They are evil because they rejected a perfect life, and now that they are out of Heaven, they are hellbent to take that away from everyone else. That is why, to a Christian, they are scary. And that is why they are often depicted in a Christian context.

  • John Schiavone
    John Schiavone Year ago

    I absolutely loathe jump scares, but I happen to like the Paranormal Activity movies because those scares, for the most part, have to be designed without the use of cheap artificial sound effects or forced editing. That's what makes the "found footage" aspect work for me: the fact that the perspective is fixed and that there isn't creepy music or some fucking stupid discordant chords means that the scare has to actually be designed around what's happening on the screen.
    I also like that the tension is set up to be internal, between your curiosity of wanting to understand the threat better and your knowledge that something unsettling is about to happen. The best moments in these kind of movies is when you learn something important in those "scary" moments. A good example in the first movie is the attic, where the characters discover that this threat has been watching her since childhood. It's a cheap scare with loud noises, but that's not what's scary about the scene; the knowledge gained is the "payoff" for willingly paying attention and thus allowing yourself to be vulnerable to being unsettled.

    To be fair, the dad in Sinister says they couldn't keep the old house so it implies they had an expensive house that they could no longer afford since he hasn't written any hits.
    And a horror trope is that haunted houses or houses where even a single strange or huge murder party has happened tend to be cheap.
