Paranormal Activity Highest Grossing R-Rated Movie Of The Decade

| Filed under: Film Flickers

paranormal_poster__opt11.jpg

It's the best $15,000 dollars ever spent!

This weekend, Paranormal Activity reached the $100 million mark at the box office, making it the highest grossing thriller of the last decade that had an R-rating.

We don't think that speaks very highly of the kinds of films Hollywood is putting out or the kinds of films audiences want to see.

But it does speak highly of masterful marketing this film had. They deserve the real honors, bringing this nothing film into so much glory.

It's impressive!

    Your headline is wrong….again….if you read further down, it sez ….highest rated THRILLER of the decade…..The Hangover–an R rated comedy–is over $250 Million in the U.S. already. You never seem to get the whole story right somehow~

    Stupid Movie!!! Boring for the first 45 minutes into it and even after that it's still boring!! Dont go waste your money, download it instead off the internet!



  9. 9

    All I've heard is that it isn't very good nor very scary….hmm

    and above all,the most boring scary movie i saw this year! i went to see this movie because of the buzz ! now some one can explain me the buzz



  12. 12

    I WOULDNT SAY ITS THAT SCARY BUT ITS A REALLY GOOD STORY AND REALLY WELL MADE AND ITS ALSO WORTH THE MONEY OF GOING TO SEE. ALL YOU GUYS WHO SAY ITS SHIT ARE DEMANDING ATTENTION !! :)



  13. 13

    It's sad that this nowhere-near-scary-movie is so successful.



  14. 14

    Seriously, ANYONE could have made this movie. I could make it RIGHT now. Just have some friends over, keep them off camera, have them stomp around, turn the lights on and off, growl occasionally, and at the end throw themselves at the camera. And then I'll type up some lame comment about how we never found their body, and end the movie. The saddest part was the "gasping" I heard in the audience, like they TOTALLY believe that it all really happened. Idiots.



  15. 15

    It was not $15,000 as you seem to constantly report … it was $11,000



  16. 16

    MOST SHIT MOVIE…EVER.
    thankfully, i didnt pay to see this crap



  17. 17

    Surprising



  18. 18

    That movie was lame and made me motion sick. My 10 year old could have made it! It wasn't scary AT ALL and I scare so easily! People only go see it because the media hyped it up. It sucked.



  19. 19

    Re: Betch84 – anyone did make this movie. LOL



  20. 20

    this movie earned so much because of all the buzz people are making about it. this movie isn't even that scary, it was more interesting if anything.



  21. 21

    I just wonder how long it will be before the folks involved in making the film start suing Paramount to get in on all that profit. I wonder how much money the actors and director ended up getting.



  22. 22

    that man is a genius. i'm happy for him.



  23. 23

    the same thing with the twilight movie, really. all promotion and minimal substance.



  24. 24

    i bet the people who sayed it sucked were really scared



  25. 25

    I got motion sick watching it, it was stupid



  26. 26

    Why in the world did the ghost keep following those two losers? It's scary to know that ghosts can be stupid, too.



  27. 27

    ughhhh it's only 14a in candaaaa!



  28. 28

    It wasn't rated R where I live!! It was 14 and up!



  29. 29

    Re: Betch84 – do you realize how pathetic and stupid you sound….?

    I guess it's because they hyped it up so much, saying it's "one of the scariest movies of all time" or something, and it made ppl think it would be good. Unfortunately previews are often deceiving. if i could go back in time and see another movie instead of this i would, it's alright, but not amazing.



  31. 31

    "bringing this nothing film into so much glory" - Nothing film? Even if you personally didn't like it, when a movie is this successful at the box office, it is everything but nothing.

    oh fuckkk i didnt pay those idiots to watch it in a theater and im glad too. downloaded it off the net and it SUCKEDDDDDDDD. this world is full of douchebags.

    Re: Goawayhilton – HAHAHA youre an idiot. im not going to diss a movie unless it fucking sucked and it SUCKED. if that scared you, i wonder how you react to actual SCARY movies.



  34. 34

    it was soooo boring….



  35. 35

    i loved it!



  36. 36

    I saw this film and it was so stupid. It wasn't scary at all. I was disappointed at best and can't believe people are still seeing it. Donate the $10 to charity and take an hour long walk! Time and money would be better spent that way. I hate Paranormal Activity.



  37. 37

    Re: Artemis – I think "nothing film" meant that it was not anything more than a $15K little project, not a studio film. Chill.



  38. 38

    I've seen it last week and …… yeah it's officially one of the worst movies i've ever seen….at least at laughed somewhere at the end
    not to speak about the direction :S
    can't wait to watch 2012!!!!!!

    Congrats :) one of my favurite movies

    Re: xoxo_anonymous – I don't think any of you people appreciate turning 15 grands into 100 millions. I think this movie is good for that budget and the people who made it and actors are all just newbies. I don't think any of you would create the psycho drama and the frighting element that simply. It is well constructed. It has a beginning, body and conclusion and the characters are developing the whole movie. Perez I think you are right about appreciating this movie just ignore the comments!



  41. 41

    No surprises here.
    The least worthy of attention gets the most attention, the most mediocre is the most popular.
    Welcome to 21st century entertainment.



  42. 42

    I heard the movie sucked and all they did was talk.



  43. 43

    Re: julie4evert – That's true! lol



  44. 44

    Re: Goawayhilton – You're such an moron. What are you? 13 years old?



  45. 45

    This movie sucked so bad I wanted my money back I felt like I wasted my movie night with my husband when i watched this movie. I was pissed. there was not one time in this movie where I jumped or anything. they make you think something scary is about to happen and then it disappoints you. I was actually laughing a little bot at the movie. neddless to say DON'T GO SEE IT!!!!!!!



  46. 46

    _



  47. 47

    i honestly think paranormal activity was the greatest/scariest movie i have seen in a long ass time. if not ever!!! not oneee single person i talked to sed it was stupid. …. except you but oh well there will ALWAYS be haters arounddd. jealous bitches



  48. 48

    Did it suck because it had a story line and no special effects that made your mindless existence follow along.

    While not the scariest movie ever…and not even scary, it was intense and a nice twist on the genre. Gore fests are so overdone and show such a lack of creativity. Very happy for this film. I know that the actors only made $500 for doing the film; I hope they get some royalty checks soon and some big ones!



  49. 49

    This movie sucked ass!

    BETCH84 sayshat's really sad, considering this movie SUCKED SO BAD!!!!!!!!! It only reminds me how many IDIOTS there are in this country.

  61. 61

    The scariest, most suspenseful, most horrifying, edge-of-your-seat horror film since THE EXORCIST



  62. 62

    One of the worst movies evar! I almost walked out of the theater!



  63. 63

    Actually, Hannibal (2001) is a rated-R thriller and it grossed domestically $165 million. So, I'd say Perez's facts are incorrect.
