Remember in elementary school when everyone was worried about catching cooties from the opposite sex? That was a simpler time. Now we have to worry about catching cooties and eating flesh.

Torture Porn. You’ve heard the term before. The media had a field day with films like Saw, The Devil’s Rejects and yes, Hostel was also one of the founders of Torture Porn. It also had the reputation for making people pass out in screenings. Is it worth watching?

The Blair Witch Project paved the way for found footage horror back in 1999, with it’s slick ad campaign and it’s unseen level of tension brought on by unknown actors. Fast forward to 2007, Oren Peli creates his own terrifying vision. Two years later, Paramount Pictures sees the potential and starts a campaign to get people interested. It worked, and what followed became one of the most successful horror franchises of all time. With the release of Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension today (Which isn’t playing in my town, so I can’t review it), I thought we’d look back and see what made this first film so special.

Voodoo, Hoodoo, Black Magic, Plantations that creep the living hell out of people…also delicious food, New Orleans has a reputation for the macabre, and this flick also uses said reputation to build scares. Does the film still hold up 10 years later?
