Paranormal Activity - Recommended by Debbie Clarke
I have to say I am not a fan of horror films but I did like this one. The story is about a young couple - Micah and Katie - who move in together and within a few weeks strange things start happening during the night so Micah buys a camera to try and capture the activity on film. It is all filmed through the perspective of the two lead characters using a hand-held camera and is all recorded in their house, making it feel extremely creepy and personal, particularly as most of the incidents happen when they are sleeping! What I liked about this movie was the fact that a lot of it is left up to your own imagination as you never actually see the evil presence which is haunting the couple. It does take a little while to really get going but once it does, you are left on the edge of your seat wondering what is going to happen next! I would recommend watching this film with the lights on, but if you enjoy scary movies and enjoy the fright factor, then Paranormal Activity is perfect to watch at night with the lights off.
