"Fun Fact: the Porn Version Looks Almost Exactly the Same".
"Paranormal Activity" revived several trends in horror flicks, most notably the hand-held "found footage" set-up popularized by "The Blair Witch Project". The first film especially was a modest effort. Two actors, the director, no camera crew, a WEEK of shooting and a miniscule budget resulted in what eventually became a blockbuster hit, spawning several sequels (including one that comes out this year). It's arguably one of the greatest success stories of independent cinema. Legend has it that while watching the premiere people walked out of the theatre, not because the film was bad but because audience members were so scared that they couldn't take it anymore.
