    It did have some genuinely creepy moments, but I really wanted to have the crap scared out of me, and I didn't. Maybe if they hadn't put in that rumbling sound right before anything "supernatural" was about to happen, it would have been better. That was seriously annoying... the combination of the low-frequency rumbling and the swerving camerawork, I wanted to vomit, and not from fright.

    I've heard of movies that used low-frequency sound to create an unsettled feeling, and I thought it was a cool idea. I assumed it wouldn't be totally obvious, though.

    Oh, I also read that Spielberg got them to change the ending. The original ending, Micah goes downstairs yelling when he hears Katie screaming, then it all goes silent. A few seconds later Katie comes upstairs alone with the bloody knife (the one Micah used early on when they're cooking) and sits by the bed for two days until her friend comes and checks on them. That's creepier, IMO. And another ending was filmed where she comes upstairs alone and looks into the camera and slits her own throat with that knife. That would be better than Throw Micah At The Camera but still a little too obvious IMO.

    The only paranormal activity I see is how they got so many people to see this crappy movie.

    I'm thinking this movie would be better to watch at home while alone.

    Maybe so. I also saw it at a sparsely-attended afternoon matinée, and I've heard it's a lot more fun in a full theater at midnight.

    That sounds like a personal problem. Have you seen a doctor about that?
