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

Is that what I think it is?

Absolutely terrifying, possibly the scariest film I have ever seen.
After just witnessing a special showing of this spectacularly terrifying film, I can say without a doubt, that I will not be sleeping tonight. What starts out as a somewhat slow paced film quickly turns into a horrifyingly intense portrayal of a young couple that is be "visited" by something sinister.
The tension builds ever so slowly, the camera roles on filming their day and night activities. This tension reaches the point where even the slightest flicker, movement, or shadow makes you want to fly out of your seat. The beauty of this film is that nothing is revealed too quickly the director lets the previous events simmer and settle with the audience before revealing more.
Rarely do films leave me so terrified that I am shaking after they have ended. Paranormal Activity is an exception to this. I highly recommend this film to all those that want to be scared out of their wits.
