A Paranormal Movie Trailer

I'm wary about the hype for Paranormal Activity, a low-budget horror film released last night in select theaters. It's being compared to The Blair Witch Project and is supposedly the most frightening thing to hit the screens in a long time. I'll believe that when I see it (Blair Witch didn't scare me at all), though the audience who screen tested it evidently felt terrorized. Watch them and it here.

Looks fairly lame. I'll have to rely on your review of it because I doubt that I'll bother to catch this one.

I read somewhere that the "test audience" consisted of people that had never seen a horror movie.

By the way, I look forward to the book you mentioned in an earlier post.

Perhaps horror movies are like hot chili, the more of them you take in, the less easily you are scared by them. I see very few and they tend to be very effective on me unless they are patently ridiculous. Blair Witch had me creeped out for a few days after I saw it.

I think a major reason Blair Witch bored me to tears was that I grew up around forests. My friends and I got lost in the woods all the time and had fun doing it, so the premise of Blair Witch didn't spook me at all. But you're right that I don't scare easily in general.
