I believe in ghosts. And poltergeists. And all that paranormal activity. I have since I was little. It used to be more of a fascination with scary stories and scary movies. But as I've gotten older I just feel like there are too many things that go unexplained for me to believe otherwise. I guess I'm someone who thinks that unless you can prove that it's NOT real, I believe.
Last night Dustin and I watched the movie Paranormal Activity. And yes, I realize the movie isn't real. Just like, yes, I know Blair Witch wasn't real either. However, I believe that things like this could really happen.
And anyway, it movie was scary. It starts with this couple and they're obviously in love and they're talking about this little haunting problem they have. The guy obviously thinks it's more of a joke than the girl does and he wants to videotape them so that they can see or hear if there's anything weird going on.
Most of the haunting happens at night and at first it's small noises and what not. But as they continue with the taping it gets weirder and weirder. They invite a psychic over and he tells them that it could either be a ghost or a demon and that from what it sounds like, they're in the hands of a demon. The girl reveals that she believes she has been haunted since she was a little girl and that at one point her family's house even burned down and they never figured out how it happened.
Anyway. By twenty minutes into the movie I was a little freaked out. By halfway through I was begging Dustin to sit next to me. And by the end I'd turned the lights on and was hiding behind Dustin.
I know it's dorky. And the sane part of me knows it's just a movie. But, you see, I believe in these things. I believe that people can be haunted. And oh my gosh I'm sorry but the end of that movie was SCARY!
And now I'm worried that when I wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom I'm going to be petrified to get out of bed. Because what if a ghost is waiting in the bathroom to kill me?
