glamrocktiger @ 04:27 pm: Paranormal Activity / classic Nosferatu


NOW PLAYING at the Del Mar Theatre in Santa Cruz, PARANORMAL ACTIVITY. This movie has been generating a lot of buzz! There was a sneak preview in San Francisco last night, and it's being called one of the scariest movies of all time, drawing comparisons to The Blair Witch Project and such. It's playing nightly at midnight (Del Mar Theatre, 1124 Pacific at Lincoln, Santa Cruz)

More about the film here



ALSO, currently playing at Clay (2261 Fillmore at Clay) in San Francisco, nightly at 11:55 pm, is the original vampire movie, F.W. Murnau's "Nosferatu," made all the way back in 1929! If you're a horror fan and haven't seen it yet, you must correct that immediately!

Well, you may be right about Paranormal Activity aping the hype of the Blair Witch Project. These days we have such cultural amnesia people don't even seem to remember things that happened just a decade before (let alone back in 1973). It does look like that's what PA is trying to do, and I wouldn't be surprised if it's a let-down; in fact, I probably only see it months from now via Netflix, not in the theater.

Still, it seemed reasonable to mention it in a community devoted to Bay Area Horror. I just joined this community, and also just moved to the Bay Area, so I want to help liven things up.

And don't forget I also mentioned NOSFERATU in my post. I myself have only seen parts of this film, and never in the theater. Being a serious and lifelong aficionado of the horror genre (I even took a college class on horror films a couple years ago, and got an A in it!), I'm excited at the chance to see this classic on the big screen for the first time.

Hey, don't worry- It's a totally reasonable mention in this community! I'm glad to see someone posting!
