Like Grierson, I'm a sucker for the Paranormal Activity films. I don't care that their stories don't make sense, that apparently there's some sort of mythology tying everything together behind them, that no one ever, ever turns that goddamned camera off. These movies work not as movies—they're barely movies at all—but simply as brutally efficient scare machines. The fact is, if you point a camera at something for 30 seconds, and at the end of that 30 seconds something JUMPS out of the side of the frame, I'm gonna leap out of my seat. It happens every time, and it's going to happen every time, until they make Paranormal Activity 49 and every shock-cut is accompanied by me spilling my colostomy bag. These movies work, even when they don't.
