31 Days of Halloween: Paranormal Activity (2007)

Welcome to 31 Days of Halloween! Every day in October, I’m going to post about a horror movie that I love. First up, is Paranormal Activity.

This supernatural found-footage film came out when I was still in high school. It was such a big deal when it came out, and it really seemed to reinvigorate the found-footage trend again. It’s the beginning of a 6-film franchise, and each film seems to move the mythos forward and reveal more about the origins of the supernatural occurrences. This is one of my favorite horror franchises!

The general plot according to IMDB is, “After moving into a suburban home, a couple becomes increasingly disturbed by a nightly demonic presence.” This, of course, describes literally every haunted house movie ever made, which is why I was initially hesitant to get my hopes up about this one. However, the found-footage style and the unique background story that continues through each of the films really sets these apart from other horror movies.
