Did anyone think that Paranormal Activity was a Blair Witch knock off?

It reminded me of the whole blair witch hype, low budget trying to make it look real kind of deal. I also thought it was a bit long. A few freaky parts, but a little dissapointed.

  • I was extremely disappointed in that movie.I was always waiting for the"good" part of the movie to happen. I was bored to death.

  • I haven't seen it yet, but I remember the first time I saw the previews for it on tv, I immediately thought it looked to be done in the style of Blair Witch. I have it on my dvd rental list, so I'll get around to seeing it eventually.

  • I haven't seen Paranormal activity but i can totally understand, We get netfix and our last few movies have been CRAPPY. They strat out good, but end up dragging on or not making any sense......" Gamer" , "The way of War" , The International.....just to name a few. Maybe its like a movie slump....LOL i hope you find a good one!

  • I would watch Paranormal Activity. There is no way it could be as stupid as the Blair Witch Project.

  • I haven't seen it yet either- but since its been out on DVD no one seems to say anything good about it, so I think we'll pass....

  • That movie sucked!!My brother in law and his girlfriend both swear up and down it was real.My husband and I felt it was one of the worst movies we've seen in a while.All this hype to build it up as the scariest movie you will ever see and it was just crap.What a disappointment.
