My Own 'Paranormal Activity' Experience

Heard of the movie 'Paranormal Activity', the one that claimed to cause a lot of people leaving the cinemas during the screening? The one that 'guarantee' to leave you nightmares upon watching it?

The movie that gives nightmares...

Last week, me and my friends went to watch it at night. While I find it very interesting and exciting, the same can't be said for my friends. One of them experienced motion sickness, a rather common thing from watching documentary-styled movie. The same thing happened to another friend of mine when we watched 'Cloverfield', another documentary-styled movie, this time it's a monster flick.

So, back to the movie. At first, it began rather slow as it explained about Katie's being stalked by a demon. Then, it began to pick up the momentum as the demon started to get more aggressive due to Katie's stupid boyfriend. You know, when you are being haunted by demon, the best thing you can do is to kick your boyfriend out and end the relationship if he started to take recordings to prove the existence of it and played Quija board to try to communicate with the demon, which he was warned against it.

Oh, yea. The story of the movie. It was supposed to be a found footage of a couple who experienced paranormal activities revolving the girl, Katie. The guy decided to record the whole things as a proof of sort to the paranormal stuffs.

There's a scene in the movie where the couple was sleeping soundly around 2/3am where the supernatural being paying them a visit. The door to the room was closed and the recorder was facing that direction. The door then slowly opened up with no one in sight and the creaking sound of the door was heard. Then, when it was opened up wide, suddenly, it was closed with a bang! Which woke the couple up naturally.

I think here's the closing door scene...

Here's my version of the paranormal activity. I was in toilet, attending to my own 'business' when I heard the sound of the creaking door. The toilet was deserted, as in there's no one at all. The slow creaking sound of the door closing was heard throughout my time in toilet. Creepy stuff.

When I finished my 'business', I investigated the whole creaking sound only to found out that the entrance door to the toilet was unable to close properly and had a tendency to close itself if without the cork or something to stop it closing. In my mind, the closing door scene in the movie kept flashing back during my time in the toilet. Luckily, I was a sensible person, therefore, I didn't really afraid. So, there's the deal.
