Paranormal Activity had a one night stand with Walking with Dinosaurs and called Snakes on a Plane for a threesome...
Directed by: Dale Fabrigar and Everette Wallin
Starring: Nobody important
I know what your thinking. "Really man? You spent your valuable time watching this obvious crap?" Yep. It was one of those nights where I decided to see a bad movie to just get it out of my curiosity. A small group of people take a flight to L.A. on new year's eve (of all holidays) and thus, a storm causes them to crash in the middle of the dessert, at least I think it's a dessert. The plane splits in two where the people in the front part die instantly, and the only survivors are no more than 7-8 people.
At some point, like 20 minutes in, I just wanted to see people freaking die. It was dragging on trying to establish characters that were clearly fresh out of acting class, minus the fat guy whom I remembered from the first season of True Blood. When they crash, I almost jumped a few scenes just to see the damn dinosaur take em out. It took an extra obnoxious ten minutes, but the creature began it's slow entrance, until it finally snagged the flight attendant and the plot kicked in. The disappointing factor about this whole production, is that it offers more screams and loud talking than scares and the damn dinosaur that never makes a full body appearance except in the end with a very cheap CGI form.
Honestly, the first Paranormal Activity movie had better screen time for the apparition than this hunk of junk of a monster. The camera is always places looking to the floor and we are left to guess without really wanting to. Panic continues and more people die. With all the blood covered around their bodies, you would expect them to faint instantly after the shocks they have gone through. Here's the twist, or at least I believe it is a twist. They are clearly in a restricted area meant for government and military eyes only. Two girls between the ages of 16-13 survive, and a guy known as the cleaner shoots them both in cold blood. The guy grabs the camera with the words "Now let's see what you guys have got here". Seconds later, as the camera is still running, we see for a good 3 seconds the dinosaur and the man was more surprised thus meeting a tragic end. I'm led to believe that even these guys had no idea what was in their own backyard.
Regardless, I got my answer, and so do you.
Overall, movies like these are simply trying to cash in on what Paranormal Activity started a few years ago. Clearly, the ghosts and demons are winning this battle.
