    [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon13.gif[/img] The whole remarkablility of Paranormal Activity was in how it became so profitable from it's infinetely narrow budget, and how it was structurally well put together and the amount of screams it brought out in some audiences. This was a golden opportunity for The Asylum throughout their long and pointless career to cash in on the movie of the season. Typically, the company couldn't even duplicate something as intellect shatteringly simple as Paranormal Activity. I urge everyone to avoid Paranormal Entity not for the usual reasons such as it's hugely misleading title but because even for fans of bad movies, this one will just be so unspeakably dull. All of the acting is forced, the characters are all uninteresting, the direction, even for mockumentary style, is awful, and worst of all, it's extraordinarily unscary. It's just depressing how lazy this film is when the producers had a genuine opportunity to make a good rip-off with it. The ghost activity overall is so badly uninventive and so boring beyond all comprehension that it makes the Paranormal Activity sequels look like The Blair Witch Project. I never really understood the hype around Oren Peli's original Paranormal Activity, I got why some people found it scary and why I didn't. I thought it was unremarkable but boasted nail biting suspense, but when it comes to Paranormal Entity, if anyone find's it scary, I am going to scream, but not in the good horror movie sense.

    Stupefyingly dull Asylum "mockbuster", trying to cash in on the <i>Paranormal Activity</i> effect. Some surprisingly positive reviews had me hoping for that rare occasion when the rip off is better than the original, but that is most definitely not the case here. Incredibly prolonged sequences of camcorder footage and "what was that?" (nothing) type dialogue before an appropriately damp squib ending. Unlike <i>Paranormal Activity</i>, this is a badly made and acted film with no redeeming qualities.

    If Paranormal Activity and The Entity ever had a baby then Paranormal Entity would be their basterd child that wants to be just like them. I'll admit that this movie creeped up on me and creeped the hell out of me and has chilling scenes and had a few tricks up its sleeve to make it stand on its own but lets be honest here it's a copycat and a ripoff that tries to gain money off of Paranormal Activitiy's success but who cares at least it's a pretty good one at that. It's uncanny how similar the lead girl is to the lead girl in Paranormal Activity they're like twins but this girl gives a darker and more serious performance and yes you will see her naked. I think though that the woman who played the mom gave the best performance as a widow who tries to contact her dead husband but instead releashes hell onto her home. Overall it doesn't bring anything new to the found footage genre but I don't think that was their goal either, they just brought what was good and scary about them and added a few scare factor ideas of their own and they got the job done, they spooked me. Keep them coming. Recommended! Watch with all the lights off at night and try to go to sleep afterwards, good luck.

    I thought this was pretty comparable to Paranormal Activity. It was very creepy, but the ending was disappointing. There was a huge gap during which they left out a large part of what happened.
