The next Top 25 Halloween Outdoor Movie
is Paranormal Actiivty,
the horror film that took 2009 by storm, thrilling audiences across the nation! The film was directed by Oren Peli, and premiered at the Screamfest Film Festival while later being screened at the Slamdance Festival during Sundance 2008. Paranormal Activity
was a nearly no-budget film, and became one of the most profitable films of all time, raking in nearly $200 million worldwide! This film is probably not suitable for young children, as it is pretty intense and really scary, but it is the perfect selection for your outdoor movie Halloween party with friends! Here's a trailer for Paranormal Activity:
is about Katie (Katie Featherston) and her boyfriend, Micah (Micah Sloat), who move into a new home in suburban San Diego, California. We quickly learn of Katie's history of a ghostly presence that has followed her during her life, a presence which she believes has come to their new
home. She hires a psychic Dr. Fredrichs (Mark Fredrichs), who tells her that the being is not a ghost, but indeed a demon, and cautions them not to taunt the demon, but to contact demonologist Dr. Johan Averies.
Micah doesn't believe a word of what Frederichs said, and instead decides to point his video camera at their bedroom at night in order to capture footage of the demon. But things get scary as his footage reveals actual evidence of the paranormal activity. Increased taunting produces a flurry of activity, and the young couple are significantly disturbed and frightened.
By screening Paranormal Activity
at your Halloween party, you'll leave your friends or family with an experience they'll never forget! If you really want to scare your audience, you could plant a friend or family member around the periphery of the screening area, making strange sounds and moving objects in a paranormal fashion!
