thats probably one of the scariest movies ive seen but it really is quite good
i NEVER watch scary movies ever (call me a pussy if you want), but its just not my thing. Like the last scary movie i can remember watching is the Strangers which only made me jump a bit with pop ups.
onto paranormal activity, it was overhyped and i watched it with a few friends at 10 on a Friday night. It was funny as hell which was good but for the first hour and few minutes it wasnt scary at all. just a little sketchy.
The last ten minutes or so is the "scariest" part. It made it worse that everyone in the theater (including girl beside me) fucking screamed when the body hit the camera + face to camera. Oh and i was at like the 2nd row too cause it was packed. Half of my friends were really jumpy where as the rest of us were pretty neutral cept for me at the end. overall it was a good movie, just a bit slow and a bit too overhyped
Worst movie ever
SPOILER (as if there werent already enough here)
totally disagree, the theatrical ending was made for mainstream to provide that jolt and surprise that every other movie has. the ending on the one that's leaked online was so much creepier, realistic, and just like depressing. it didn't give the viewer the satisfaction of why anything happened or what is to happen in the future, making it more believable that a haunting could really happen to anyone.
i liked how the non-theatrical ending showed that the demon took over the girl, but then left as the police came into the house. you see the light in the background room turn on and then off, and then finally the door slams as she is approaching the cops with the knife, probably scaring the even more police causing them to shoot her (with a regular pistol not a shotgun).
the theatrical ending is just like ok wow now she's a demon and is no where to be found and isn't realistic at all. IMO it's easier to believe that a demon (that we can't see) is still out there, as opposed to someone who has turned into a demon
yea so there are 4 endings total: theatrical, "original" i saw(kills micah, friend comes, police come), diff version of the "original" (kills micah, friend comes, kills friend, police come) and then the one you mentioned when she slits her troat. the suicide one was apparently only screened once and would definately have been disturbing and/or gruesome and i think that's why it was only screened once.
that ending is also more realistic than the theatrical, but i still like the cops one better. with the suicide again we wouldnt be given any real answers, but maybe it would lead viewers to that she ended her life because either she couldn't handle having killed micah, or she thought killing herself would also kill the demon. as opposed to the "original" ending where we understand she had no intentions of killing anyone and the demon is really still around.
