Paranormal Activity

Question: What does it mean when a black, lined piece of paper is found that has white printing it? The paper appears to be old and the printing says "I love you" This paper just appeared one evening but was not there before.

Question: Can someone tell me if I'm interpreting this correctly? When Katie changes her mind about fleeing the house and is found clutching a cross with blood on her hand and leg, Micah takes it and burns it, after which she becomes possessed. Was she successfully warding off the demon with the cross and clutching it so desperately that it made her hand bleed, and then Micah wrongly thought it was being used to attack her and inadvertently made her possession a done deal by burning it?

Answer: The screenwriter confirms in the commentary that burning the cross and picture was a mistake because it was the last defence they had.

Question: When the demonologist comes over, Micah says that they shouldn't invite Katie's mother over anymore since the demon feeds on negative energy. Didn't her mother die (as seen in the third movie)? I know she didn't die in the fire. But she died before the first movie, right?

Answer: When their mother died and the girls got brainwashed by the cult and got some of their memory erased another woman in the coven (I'm assuming she was a part of the coven) took on the role as their mother, it was mentioned in Paranormal activity the ghost dimension, also you can hear their "mother" talking to them in a deleted scene from the paranormal activity ghost dimension.

Question: When the couple had flour on the floor between their room and the hallway at night, I seemed to be the only one that noticed that the footprints of the 'demon', who apparently walked on the flour, only had three toes. I couldn't find the scene when watching it again, so I'm asking you if you've seen the same.

Chosen answer: I noticed the three toed footprint as well. It was kind of like a chicken's foot.

Question: I hope someone can help me with this: In one of the movie's /teaser/promotional posters, we see Katie and Micah tightly huddled together on the extreme far right of their bed while they look at a shadow of something that is outlined on their bedroom door. I've seen the movie more than once but don't remember that scene. When (or if) does this occur in the movie?

Answer: It's just a movie poster, not showing any part of a scene. Some movie posters may take different parts of the movie and combine them to make a more suspenseful image for the movie poster/teaser. There is a part in the movie with a shadow on the door, and there is a time where they are together on the bed in a similar position. Combine the two to make the poster interesting.

Visible crew/equipment: When Mika brings Katie upstairs after investigating another noise downstairs, you hear a thump come from downstairs. Mika turns the camera down the stairs, and you can see a crew member scrambling to get out of the shot.

More quotes from Paranormal Activity

Trivia: As part of a marketing gimmick, the film wasn't going to receive a traditional release. Instead, audiences could click a button online to "demand" their local theaters get a copy, and once an area got enough "demands," a copy would be shipped there. This was done because the studio was worried they wouldn't make enough money if they did a wide release. So many people ended up "demanding" the film, that the studio eventually caved and gave it a wide release. It became a massive hit.
