Release Date: 2009
Director: Oren Peli
Starring: Katie Featherston, Micah Sloat
Plot: It’s a haunted house movie.
Why it’s recommended: Without a doubt the scariest movie with minimal effort I’ve ever seen. Paranormal Activity may not awe you with its story or acting performances, but it will certainly keep you on the edge of your seat as you helplessly watch two homeowners get tortured by a demon.
Interesting Fact: The entire movie was filmed entirely in Oren Peli’s own home in 10 days.
Best Line: “I promised you I wasn’t going to buy a Ouija board. I didn’t buy a Ouija board. I borrowed a Ouija board.”
