Found-footage horror has always been pretty hit-or-miss: for every Blair Witch Project there’s a Last Exorcism. Most of the time, it’s the low-budget efforts that succeed in utilizing the style’s greatest strengths, so it’s not surprising that Paranormal Activity, made on a budget of $15,000, became a global phenomenon. The sequels are what they are, but the first movie is still chilling to this day, in part because of its two leads, who act in such a way that it’s easy to believe it’s all real.
I tried to watch the first one but got bored about 15 minutes into it. I'll probably have to go back and try again. This is the sequel, obviously since its #3. This time the girls are all grown up and want to investigate exactly what happened to them. I guess we'll see. Watch the creepy.
