The temptation to give a Paranormal Activity review a spin played like a fat-ass to orbit. Pulled me in and clamped with brute strength. As I suspected, though, reviewing this film wasn’t easy. It’s so straightforward in its approach and works on all the necessary planes that a critique could feel comfy at a measly 25 words. Digging into Paranormal Activity at a traditional write-up’s length took longer than most other writing exercises, and I’m still not entirely confident that I did that great of a job. I’ll let the readers be their own judges.
