After experiencing what they think are a series of "break-ins", a family sets up security cameras around their home, only to realize that the events unfolding before them are more sinister than they seem.
After a young, middle class couple moves into a suburban 'starter' tract house, they become increasingly disturbed by a presence that may or may not be somehow demonic but is certainly most active in the middle of the night. Especially when they sleep. Or try to. Written by
Shot in 2006, not put into general release until 2009. See more »
When Katie is saying she doesn't want to leave the house, it is assumed that Micah has set the camera on the bed, as it stops moving and stays at a constant angle. This explains why the camera stayed while Micah walked away. See more »
Is that what I think it is?
Depends on what you think it is.
I think it's a big-ass camera! Whatever happened to one of those little hand held cameras?

True story: I have tried to see this movie 4 times!
I started watching it in the morning one day... and fell asleep 15 minutes into the movie. Then I put it on in the afternoon and the same thing happened. Then - in the evening; didn't make it, either.
I did eventually manage to sit through the whole thing (4th attempt), and now I'm wondering why I bothered. It was painfully boring and cheesy.
I *really* fail to understand what all the fuss is about. I only saw this movie because there was so much hype around it, and now I'm totally gobsmacked -- I honestly don't understand what it is that people like about it.
Someone had already told me that it was "nothing special", so I didn't expect anything extraordinarily brilliant. But... it was a lot worse than "nothing special". It was UTTER CRAP!
I can't get over the fact that this piece of s*** has become such a popculture phenomenon. I mean... 3 sequels!?
Zero entertainment, zero suspense, and absolutely NOTHING to hold your interest/attention. There is nothing new or original or innovative, or even noteworthy, about this lousy excuse for a movie.
I wouldn't watch this nonsense again if they paid me. I would, however, recommend it highly as a cure for insomnia. Worked wonderfully well for me.
One word: boring. EXTREMELY boring.
