Paranormal Activity



On Friday night, I was suppose to go to a wine tasting with my sis-in-crime and sis-in-law. I had to back out because I wasn't feeling well and staying home comfy on my couch was a better option. Later on in the night, I get a text message from my sis-in-law asking if I was home because they wanted to come over. Of course I said yes! Mr. Newlywed Giggles was out at a fraternity event so we had the apartment to ourselves. They came over and we chatted and laughed, then Mr. Newlywed Giggles came home. He was going through the bootleg movies he bought and mentioned Paranormal Activity so we all decided to pop it in and watch it. Mind you, it's about 11:00 pm. My sis-in-law is the love seat couch and me and sis-in-crime are sprawled out on the big couch. Mr. Newlywed Giggles was sitting in a chair, but halfway through the movie moved over to the couch with me and sis-in-crime. Now, this movie was a bit scary but really more disturbing. We were kind of freaking out throughout the movie. Some screams and jumps occured mainly by sis-in-law...hahaha.

Now, I always thought that sis-in-crime was a person who isn't afraid of anything. WRONG! Sis-in-crime let me know midway the movie that she is afraid of scary movies and doesn't really watch scary movies. At this point, I'm cuddled into Mr. Newlywed Giggles arms holding on for dear life of fright and sis-in-crime is holding onto my leg. Wait, let me fix that last statement. Sis-in-crime is HUGGING AND HOLDING ONTO MY LEG FOR DEAR LIFE! Her hold was getting tighter and tighter in the scary scenes and I'm still convinced she didn't see half of the movie because she wasn't looking at the TV. By the end of the movie, the three of us on the big couch were huddled so close together! It was hilarious and since the movie finished around 1:00 am, we were all convinced that none of us were going to get sleep. I had a bad migraine so I forced myself to fall asleep. The next day I learned that sis-in-law had some nervousness sleeping at night and sis-in-crime ending up watching Deuce Bigelow to soothe her nerves and didn't go to bed till 4:30 am!

So our movie night was pretty scary and hilarious at the same time.

Have any of you seen the movie Paranormal Activity?

I can relate! It's been a while since I've seen a good movie to get my heart racing. It was even better to watch it on opening night.
However, during the final scene, I was so scared that I closed my eyes. What happened when she threw the boyfriend into the camera and she bent down to snif him? Did she turn into a demon when she looked into the camera??

@RenRexx, I don't want to spoil the movie for others, but I saw one of the alternate endings which is not the same as you are talking about above. So, I would know. :)
