I just want someone to validate my belief that Paranormal Activity is a genuinely good franchise

Leaving aside 99% of the 4th movie and 95% of the 2nd movie, I UNIRONICALLY LOVE these damn movies. I love that they took the gimmick of the first movie and just kept layering over it both narratively AND structurally and that the 5th movie just totally went for it in the end and dragged you all the way back to the first movie because THIS ISN’T A HORROR SERIES, IT’S AN URBAN FANTASY where the WITCHES ALWAYS WIN, and that this series decided to build on itself by building backstory in ways that are circular so it’s both just like every other successful repetitive horror franchise and nothing like every other successful horror franchise

and by the way, before PA, what other horror movie franchise started out by taking its Final Girl (and literally only girl) in the first movie and turning her into the reigning Final Villain for all the movies thereafter, so that she’s LITERALLY the final girl in an ever-expanding COVEN OF GIRLS WHO WANT TO KILL YOU

and can we talk about how Paranormal Activity 3 is GENUINELY SO SMART AND SCARY AND ALMOST AS SCARY AS PA (HONESTLY SCARIER IMO), WITH SCARES THAT IT COMES BY HONESTLY like seriously when was the last time you were that scared for two little kids in a horror film and also did you notice that the real horror underlying PA2 and PA3 isn’t even the demon but the severing of the bond between these two sisters, like FUCK YES and also how PA3 was *LITERALLY* nothing but backstory and totally not at all where anyone expected the series to go after the 2nd movie, but it sold that shit so hard and even threw in a fucking Poltergeist homage for free, and you’re still freaking terrified to go into the bathroom by yourself because of that Bloody Mary scene and also HOW MUCH TOBY DUBCON FANFIC DO YOU WANT oh wait that’s just me oh oh sorry nevermind

and can we talk about how Paranormal Activity 5 is as shitty as PA4 except holy fuck yes when was the last time you saw a movie whose entire main cast was Latino and the gangster is the guy you go to for help
and the POC characters are the first characters in this fucking franchise to actually fight back instead of wandering around waiting to die, and how when you go back to that damn house HOLY SHIT IT’S EVEN SCARIER THAN IT WAS THE LAST TIME and OH GOD IT’S THAT STAIRCASE like seriously how is that staircase not rivaling the damn exorcist staircase at this point, like seriously all the staircases in this movie were freaking nightmares waiting to happen to you, and okay maybe nothing else in this damn iteration was scary but THAT HOUSE AND THOSE STAIRS

and can we just talk about how Katie Featherstone gives no fucks and just walks around being demon-possessed and badass and like how amazing is it that the climax of every single film after the first movie is just KATIE FEATHERSTONE SHOWING UP, like literally, THAT’S IT, and in any other series that shit would be totally overdone but since this is a series where the found footage thing is being hammered to death you don’t even care because THANK GOD WE JUST SAT THROUGH 90 MINUTES OF SHAKY CAM AND NOW OUR GODDESS KATIE IS HERE AND SHE’S STILL POSSESSED AND IT’S ALL WE WANT JUST FUCKING TAKE OVER THE WORLD ALREADY KATIE 

i fucking love this series i love it so much i will die on this battlefield, probably possessed by a terrible demonic entity

"Be Wary of Ouji Boards"

modified-limited-rampage submitted

  At 17, I moved out of my mothers house to live with my coworker and friend in a very old farm style house in Clemmons, NC. Despite being old, surrounded by woods, and called “creepy” a lot, the house gave me a good feeling (I’m very sensitive) and I loved it. This chick was never happier! Freedom in an awesome house!

Until my best friend brought a Ouji board in. Me, her, my roommate were going to play with it when the owner of the house told us it wasn’t a very good idea. He was from Mexico, very religious and a good guy, but we ignored the warning.

We played the “omg you’re moving it!” for a whole until it became later and it wasn’t giving full answers. I know we asked something, but instead of an answer, we got “dont crss rod” or something we figured to “don’t cross road”. There was a highway as a road (oh NC… US-13), and just then my pager went off (this was a long time ago). It was my girlfriend giving me a 911. We didn’t have a house phone, but the pay phone we used was (of course) across the street. Panic, terror, fear all gripped me and I knew something was there to do us harm. (My gf said she was sleeping at the time and the page was gone.) I started to cry because of all these feelings rushing through me, and my friends swore they didn’t move it and tried to calm me down.

We went on, I wanted to know what this was, why it was doing this, etc. The board told us to be at a certain place (which I forget now) at midnight on a certain date. I knew it was a trap and I knew my best friend and roommate wouldn’t go this far when I was so scared.

At that date and time, we had no intentions of going to the place. Instead, on that exact date and time, me and my bff were in a bad auto accident that totaled her car, sent me to the hospital for back problems I still have to this day.

When we got back, we found and burned the board. I screamed into the night that it leave us alone and never return. The owner did a cleansing job (like the lady in PA2!) and things went back to normal.

But honestly, these boards are not games. Know what you’re doing, be protected, but honestly - best not to mess with them.

Fuck Yeah Nightmares Mod Fey:
Probably not the best time to mention that burning boards can make things worse–people believe that can free the spirits. The best way to dispose is burial. It’s very good you knew someone who could do a cleansing ritual!!  9/10 for scares and thank you for sharing!

Pesan untuk yang akan pergi

Ketika kita jauh dari orangtua, keluarga, teman, sahabat ataupun lingkungan yg biasa kita berada, pasti akan ada titik dimana akan merasakan hal yang berbeda, merasa asing, merasa canggung, mulai beradaptasi lagi dan mencari jati diri (lagi). Ya tidak ada orang lagi yg selalu bisa mengingatkan bisa dibilang cuma kamu dan Tuhan yang tahu apa yang kamu lakukan.

Dalam keadaan seperti ini, jika kita tak berusaha dan menjaga kedekatan kita pada Allah, Allah tidak akan memberikan rasa sensitif dan bantuannya untuk memberi tahu apakah yang kita lakukan sudah benar atau tidak, apakah pilihan yang kita ambil sudah tepat atau tidak. Moment kedekatan kita pada Allah disaat kita jauh dr siapa-siapa, berada di negeri orang yang mungkin Islam adalah agama minoritas adalah suatu keharusan yang wajib diperjuangkan, agar Allah bantu kita, agar Allah bantu kita untuk menjadi ambassador muslim yang baik untuk orang-orang disana.

Carilah tempat tinggal di dekat mesjid. Karena lingkungan yang baik akan membuat kita tetap terjaga dalam kebaikan. Dimana kamu tak akan merasa sendiri, takut atau merasa aneh melakukan ibadah dilingkungan yg mungkin tidak mendukungmu. Ketika kita bisa tinggal di dekat mesjid, kita jadi merasa bahwa kita punya orang yg berjuang di jalan yang sama dan rasa lemah dan malas beribadah tidak akan dirasakan .

Berada di negeri orang dimana kita menjadi minoritas, maka tetap jagalah kebersamaan dengan orang-orang dan lingkungan yg akan menjaga ibadahmu. Kita tetap bergaul dengan orang lain tapi bukan melebur. Tetap pegang prinsip agama yang tidak bisa ditawar-tawar atau di excuse sana sini. Ah ga pa2 kok, boleh kok, kan ga tau, ga pa2 lah sekali ini dll. Ada hal yang tidak bisa kamu permainkan jika itu sudah menyangkut syariat Islam.

Kesibukan kuliah atau pekerjaan yang datang tidak mengenal waktu, bukan dijadikan alasan untuk tidak menjaga ibadah. Seharusnya kita disibukan dgn ibadah bukan malah sebaliknya. Ketika kamu menjaga agama Allah maka Allah pun akan menjagamu.

Jangan melupakan Allah, agar Allah tidak melupakanmu, orang yang melupakan Allah pasti akan lupa diri. Ketika Allah beri kenikmatan dan kemudahan dia sangka itu hasil kerja keras dan cerdasnya saja, ketika Allah beri dia cobaan dan ujian dia bilang itu krn orang lain dan malah menyalahkan orang lain. Jangan sampai Allah sentil dulu baru kita ingat lagi sama Allah. Ingatlah ketika kita selalu berjuang di jalan Allah dan tidak mementingkan dunia semata, maka kita tidak akan ditindas zaman dan masa. Malah Allah akan menyelamatkanmu dari gelombang zaman yang dapat menenggelamkanmu.

Intinya, mau sejauh apapun kamu pergi sekolah, berkarir, mengejar cita-cita meski harus jauh dr orangtua, keluarga, sahabat atau temen terbaik, yg harus dijaga adalah ibadah kita, tingkatkan terus kualitas ibadah, tingkatan terus pemahaman terhadap agama, tetap mengikuti majelis-majelis ilmu. Jangan sampai moment kedekatan dengan Allah digadaikan untuk kesenangan dan kenikmatan sesaat.

(Tulisan ini terinspirasi dari acara perpisahan melepas seorang teman yang akan melanjutkan sekolah di benua eropa)

Semoga tetap istiqomah
