OT: Paranormal Activity (Spoiler Alert on endings)

Submitted by HartAttack20 on October 31st, 2009 at 2:21 AM

Just got back from seeing paranormal activity tonight and I thought it was pretty decent. When I heard some reviews and people were saying it was the scariest movie ever, I had to see it. Basically it's not anywhere near the scariest movie I've ever seen. I don't know what movie that would be, but this one wasn't very scary until the very end, and even then it wasn't a big deal. I was laughing with my friends for most of the movie because you can hear people yelling random things and there are a few jumpy moments in the movie. I really never jumped or was surprised during the whole thing. I was shocked at how much other people freaked out. The ending is pretty damn creepy, though. I thought it was at least a pretty interesting movie in the way they made it and at least made it seem somewhat realistic even though it's obviously somewhat farfetched. I did hear that there were two other endings that the director thought of that weren't included. One was in the original, but the other wasn't even filmed because it was so messed up. If you haven't seen the movie and don't want to hear about the endings, STOP READING NOW.

So the ending in the theatrical version I saw is that the girl is possessed at the end and she just walks out of the room and the you hear her screaming. Next the BF runs down to her to check on her and you hear some movement and noises. Then you see her come back and, I think, throw him in the room. Next she crawls on top of him and creepily smiles in to the camera and kind of jumps at it.

The other ending possible was that she slits her throat at the end after killing the guy and then she drops on the floor and the demon floats away.

The ending not even taped had her beating the guy with the camera and we would see it from the cameras perspective (Supposedly. This is just what I read)

Anybody else see the movie? Thoughts on the ending? I thought it was alright but I heard friends complain about it for whatever reason. Maybe a little more of a closed ending would've been nice.
