Paranormal Activity is a 2007 indie horror movie directed by Oren Peli which achieved huge success in late 2009. The movie plays off people's imaginations with very minimal gore and violence. Because of this, people tend to either find the movie one of the scariest they have ever seen or find it to be much too slow. Paranormal Activity is one of the most profitable films in history costing an estimated $11,000 to produce and having grossed approximately $66 million as of October 30th, 2009.
The movie itself follows a young couple, Kate and Micah, as they film themselves attempting to deal with a demonic haunting.
