    Is there such a thing??? I've yet to see a genuinely scary movie... One that makes my skin crawl and keeps me awake a few extra minutes/hours. However, I'm not much of a horror movie buff... In fact I haven't seen most titles, mostly because they don't do much for me.

    As cheesy as the concept was, The Ring was genuinely creepy to me. So was The Others.

    I just got back from seeing it and was going to start a thread on it.

    HOLY FUCK.

    it's not cheesy, Hollywood, amusing, entertaining, funny, or any other word you'd use to describe a movie.

    It sinks deep into your psyche and plants a seed of terror that doesn't leave. I have never been so scared in my life..I was honestly shaking and near tears the sensation and sheer absolute terror was so overwhelming.

    It's not even a movie. I know it isn't real, but how they did it makes your mind think it's 100% real. No credits, no opening scene..it's just BOOM, and the footage rolls up as if the actual camera was retrieved from the scene, and plugged in at the theater. It's so simple.

    Don't judge it when you haven't seen it, either. I had mixed thoughts going in, but coming out I was completely blown away.

    I now have a greater respect for the power of demons (though I don't necessarily believe in them),

    and won't sleep for a month.

    It's not like any other horror movie I've ever seen..and I've seen a lot.
    In most horror movies, you know what's going on, it's all defined. You have ghost, or a serial killer, or a deadly zombie disease turning people into savage beasts..
    But in Paranormal Activity, you're left to judge from the crude framework of authentic patchy pieces of terrifying footage that are seem 100% real. The acting is perfect, and everything seems real.

    Another thing that made this movie great (and bonechilling), was the fact that there was no music or outside sound added. There is no ominous high pitched violin music when something is about to pop up, there is no dramatic music when strange things happen, it's just the footage, and nothing more. As if you are right in the room with them.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Well, if you wansta be all tecknical!

    I thought it was the air vents making that noise. Nonetheless, there was no music, and it sounded awfully scary!

    I saw it last week with high hopes and left rather underwhelmed, along with my brother and brother in-law, who's a horror buff. I had chills going down my spine during the scenes where things happen, but I also yawned every time! The last two bits were solid, but it wasn't worth the price of admission.

    Saw it tonight with my brother and i'm glad I didn't go off and pay for it, it was scary at times yes, but it could've been better I actually saw the ending where Katie just sits there and rocks for a day after she killed Micah and the police end up shooting her because she came at them with a knife (trigger happy much?) I would've appreciated the third alternate ending the one where she slits her own throat : )

    I watched a video file that was uploaded to the share drive here in Iraq... It had the ending where she's killed by the cops. What's the "true" theatrical ending?
