Critic Reviews:

Written, produced, and directed by Oren Peli on a micro budget of $15,000, Paranormal Activity reinforces what The Blair Witch Project — to which it has been compared — proved, which is big budgets and knockout visual effects aren’t necessary to induce genuine terror. I can happily say this indie fright flick scared me rigid.

...Paranormal Activity is one of the most innovative horror films of the last decade. It’s a fast, frightening film from a truly talented writer/director. And I can’t think of a better movie to see before Halloween. All terror, no tricks, what a treat! Believe the hype. Go see this movie — just not alone.

The movie contains frightening/terrifying scenes, suspense, tension, cheap but effective jump scares and cheap found footage style that worked. It does not take a lot of money or cast members to make an entertaining movie, but it does take a skilled director, writer, and skilled actors to make an enjoyable film.
