Paranormal Activity
25 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

This movie is not entirely an action movie. It's not a fantasy either. It's a weird hybrid, that might leave people confused, about how they should feel about it. I watched it at the Fright Fest in London and liked it. Despite it's late hour showing (which got even later, due to an unplanned screening of something else), the movie still was great. I could hold my attention, despite me and others being really tired and held us til the end.

There are many action scenes in this movie, but there is also a lot of supernatural things going on. The main actor is really strong (in his performance) and almost everybody else falls in his shadow. A movie that bears a second (or more) viewing!
