Overall I enjoyed it, I'll put my thoughts in black below.
My favorite parts were
When things were happening in the daytime, she said she could feel it breathing on her and suddenly you saw her hair kind of blow from the side, I thought that was great.
When she got dragged out of bed. Totally didn't see that coming and thought it was freaky as hell.
I DIDN't like:
The douchebags talking and laughing through the whole thing (that's a theater thing though)
I thought that the makers of the movie ruined the part where the guys body flies at the camera by showing it in the previews, that would have had a lot more impact if you didn't know it was coming.
The very very last thing where she like sniffs his body then jumps at the camera, that was, I thought, the only really cheap scare and it was a horrible last impression to end on.
Saw it yesterday. One of the best scariest movies Ive seen by far. I definitely recommend it to everyone.
I saw someone say it was like Cloverfield, which to some degree is true, but definitely not as bad as that roller coaster.
The chicks in the theater were screaming like crazy!!! Ive heard some pretty crazy stories the last couple of days about people after watching the movie lol.
But if you can, go see it!
Walked out a short time ago and on my iPhone. Great horror movie. People were freaking out in the theater. You don't need budgets and special effects to tell a scarey story. This movie is going to make someone a ton of money.
I thought it was fantastic... 1st 45 are skosh slow.. but still.
Lots of women screamed
One lady said in a scared voice: this was a "terrible movie" and people laughed.

The comparison is just based off the endless hype. OMG call your theater to get it shown. You'll **** your pants! This is the scariest movie ever!!!!!!
Could this movie be? Maybe. That being said, even if it doesn't totally blow like the BWP did, it'll never match the hype. Hence the pass.
Saw it last night in Fairfax. 9:20 show was sold out so I had to wait for the 10:20, which also ended up selling out I believe.
It was a great film, definitely the best horror movie I've seen in years. It's amazing how something as simple as footsteps or a light flicking on can be so scary. I'm sooo glad they didn't resort to using a bunch of cheesy CGI in this movie, that would have ruined it.
Shot for a reported $15,000, "Paranormal Activity" came in at No. 5 with $7.1 million as distributor Paramount expanded it into daylong release after two weeks of midnight-only screenings.
edit: It averaged more than $44,000/theater. Perspective: The top flick, Couples Retreat, averaged just under $12,000/theater.

I'm pretty stoked about seeing this movie as I love horror. The best movie in that genre I've seen for my taste in sometime is 1408. How does is compare? Thrill wise, not cinematography wise, obviously.
just got back from it..................scary as ****.
good movie though.
I thought it was Vincint Price scary.. a sound or a spider web walked through or a statement made that people in the audience answer... as opposed to 60 gallons of gasoline in the trunk of a car explosion because it ran off a loading dock.
