What if fear turned profits?

What if a movie filmed on a budget of under $10,000 brought in $100 million?  This is what’s going on with the new hit movie Paranormal Activity—a movie shot in 1 week by an unknown, (Oren Peli) in his house, with non-famous actors and on a shoestring budget.  Not since The Blair Witch project that cost $25,000 and brought in some $25 million, has so much come out of so little!  The plot is simple: a young couple, troubled by strange nighttime noises, decide to put a camera in their house one evening to observe possible paranormal phenomena.  Horror without a single drop of blood!  The movie comes out on December 2nd in France. Check out the very disruptive preview (below): we see the reactions of the first spectators screaming in their seats.   According to lore, Steven Speilberg, having seen the movie before everyone else, was so terrified he threw the DVD into his trashcan!  (source of lore: Le Parisien newspaper).  Hold on to your seats!
