Paranormal Activity (Blu-ray) - £8.99 @ HMV

steve81 Avatar
6y, 6m agoFound 6 years, 6 months ago
Katie (Katie Featherson) and Micah (Micah Sloat) are a twenty-something couple who've just moved into a new home in San Diego, California. Katie has an interest in the paranormal and believes that malevolent spirits have been following her since childhood, though Micah is not so easily convinced. However, after several nights of loud noises and strange happenings, Micah starts to agree with Katie that some sort of ghost may have followed them to the new home. After a paranormal researcher tells the couple he can't help them, Micah decides to take control of the situation and sets up a battery of video cameras so if a spirit manifests itself, he can capture its behavior on tape. Once the surveillance cameras are in place, Katie and Micah bring in an Ouija board in an effort to talk to the spirits, a move that deeply offends the ghosts. Paranormal Activity was the first feature film from writer and director Oren Peli.

DVD and Bluray both have one alternative ending. They actually have the same extras you get nothing more on the bluray except the knowledge you have paid for a bluray disc of a movie that was filmed using a camcorder!

Bluray . . . DVD

And IMHO this is a film such as 'Blair Witch' that you will think 'why did I believe all the hype' Most of the film is boring and the last 10 mins are at most mildly amusing. There is no way this is one of the scariest movies of all times.


I watched this "movie" in about 25 mins. Total rubbish and totally agree about waste of a blu ray.

worth renting or just wait until it's on sky. Good film, nice and spooky
#3
Dreadful 'movie'
#4
Terrible film, even if for some strange reason you thought it was good, rewatch value is as redundant as Sixth Sense and with it being shot with handheld camcorders hardly would do Blu Ray justice!
#5
This is a very boring movie and not scary at all and i'm easily scared. I recommend Rec, it's a far superior movie.

Good to see the amateur film critics out in force.

Clearly this is a cold deal because a few people didn't like it. Even though I liked it your superior opinions have convinced me otherwise.

And on a non-sarcastic note, nobody cares what you think. The point of this site is to judge whether its a good price or not, not a platform for your meaningless opinions!

I still dont fathom how lots of people say it scared them senseless

had me in hysterics, it was that bad!

better off getting this film :-

Thats the point, nobody cares what you think or what I think. Let people judge for themselves.

This is a price based website.

The point I was making with Rec is its a strange alternative suggestion. I didn't like the Sound of Music so people should watch Terminator instead.

which reminds me, just off to watch the FA cup, then back to watch MESRINE parts 1 & 2 (2008). Now this looks like a good film.

They are very simular in my mind. They are both hand held supernatural horror films.

I disagree - I think that DustD knows exactly what this forum is supposed to be about - but it's the internet... people just can't help themselves from passing their irrellevant opinions (including myself). :thumbsup:
#17
Added heat, as this is a price based website. This is the cheapest price for this blu ray and therefore hot.

I don't care whether you like the film or not, or whether it looks good on blu ray or not. You are judging this item based on market competition and relative price....and in this case it is a good deal. Personally I don't think this will do blu ray justice and think it is the kind of film you only watch once......however voted hot.

Oh and to csiman, I wish we had more people in this country with your work ethic and I am glad to see you are so proud of it, it would be a much better place if everyone were like you.

It IS a rubbish movie, but i didn't vote it cold as it might be the cheapest price to buy it. But our comments about buying a blu ray of a movie shot on what looks like a camcorder are totally relevant

It may be the cheapest you will get it on Bluray (at the moment) but as the DVD will give you exactly the same viewing experience (no enhaced picture quality here) and considering the DVD is cheaper I voted this cold.

but it may have been shot using an HD camcorder ;-):-D

£9.99 is the cheapest i can see the DVD for online, so the blu-ray works out cheaper.

Haven't seen this movie myself yet, i'm waiting for the DVD to go below £5 first.

Hate to disagree matey, but I will! Price should reflect quality...in this case, it's worth about a quid because it is a terrible film, so even at this price it is definitely cold.

How can it be a 'good deal' if it's a hopless product? A season ticket for Man U at half price is a good deal, but a season ticket for Liverpool at half price is not, you get me?

You think its terrible, and I'll emphasise the YOU. That doesn't make it terrible.

Lots of people liked Titanic. I hated it. That doesn't make it terrible either.

Opinions are like a-holes - everybodys got one.

I enjoyed the film. Unfortunately with things like this once a few people have said they don't like it, it becomes "cool" to not like it, and then people watch it in the wrong frame of mind.
Don't expect what is not there either, no special effects explosions, no mutant killer monsters, or inbred familys killing for kicks. Just a good, atmospheric movie.
Imo.
#27
Regardless of price, this film is huge waste of time and money. If you hear something go bump in the night you turn the bloody light on and grab the nearest sharpest / heaviest object. Any normal person would NOT grab a poxy camcorder.

There are scarier episodes of The Clangers.
#28
I know some people are saying this is a terrible movie but it completely freaked me out when I saw it. It even gave me nightmares that night! Or perhaps Im just a big girls blouse.

Yes, but 'this film is rubbish' hardly counts as an opinion that adds any value now does it?

Surely got to be cold !!!

Although £4 cheaper than anywhere else. Why would you pay for a dodgy hand-held camera film ?? Poor film, poor video and audio quality.

I was undecided as to whether to watch this but then I read a review online, some website called faceinbook or something, and it was just a single sentence review that read "ZOMG PARENORMAL ACTIVITY WOZ SOOOOOOO SCARY!"

I think that pretty much summed up the audience for this film. I have seen it, it isn't scary but nor are the majority of films in the horror genre. Ok film buy it if your a serial tweeter.
#32
There's some right old garbage written on this thread.

Question: Is this a cheap price for this product when compared to other suppliers?

Yes? Then it's a hot deal
No? Then it's a cold deal

Personal preferences are utterly irrelevant.

Wow,just... wow! First of all your analogy is completely stupid, any half price season ticket is a good deal....even a half price Burnley season ticket is a good deal.

You are totally missing the point of this website. If the price of the item is significantly cheaper than anywhere else on the market then that is a good deal. Whether YOU like the item or not or whether YOU think it is a good investment/worth the money is your opinion but should not affect whether you vote hot or cold. Hot or cold signifies should relate to price and not how many people like it.

Lord of the Rings for example, I noticed today that they were all £7.99, that is a good deal as it is significantly cheaper than anywhere else. Regrdless of the fact they are not the extended editions or a particularly fantastic transfer.
#34
Film is stupid. They're filing the 'thing' that sets on fire, you all know the scene. When they come back and watch the tape, they see the movements on the 'thing' but not the fire, how dumb. Ruined the whole film for me, surely they would have noticed that and not just the moving.

I might get it as my friend wants to watch it and it's cheaper than the DVD... Not sure it's worth £9 though, but I guess it's a bargain if you have interest in it.

I agreed earlier that it probably is the cheapest available but it isn't hot because it is totally crap. Even worse than the Fourth Kind.

If i posted a deal for an Alba TV that was cheaper than other Alba TVs then i would imagine my deal would go cold very quickly and be full of posts saying i should buy a Panasonic etc.

(I posted adeal for a Makro LG 42" TV that was the cheapest price but got voted cold cos it was only available to Makro cardholders while a later post at a dearer price went hot. You can see i'm still smarting over that :oops:)

Well there are far better movies to buy than this (imho) that show what blu ray can do. Just wait six months and this will be available in Poundland

I think about it "showing what blu ray can do" is rather irrelevant here. This deal is, after all, cheaper than the DVD versions of this film and if that was everybody's attitude then we may as well still be watching many films on VHS.

Based on price, I've simply got to vote this deal hot.

well said. i'd add that any horror film becomes a joke if you view it with a sceptical eye. if you let these films do their job and be drawn in by the atmosophere they create then they can be very scary indeed. me and my girlfriend watched this without any preconceptions and it freaked us out big time! conversely i watched another great and very creepy horror film 'the children' earlier with my mates and some of them joked their way through it and as a result came to the conclusion it was "rubbish" but i challenge you to watch that film in the right frame of mind and not be disturbed...

You only quote a part of my point. What about people voting inferior brands cold regardless if they are the cheapest? You seem to have missed that part of the post which relates to the above
