So, interesting thing: I was actually watching a rifftrax video of the movie Paranormal Activity, and then I decided to look at a review of the movie itself to see if it was actually any good. So I went over to IMDB.com and looked through the content advisory.

They have this system called the Total Content Evaluation, something like that, and they rate it at what age would be best suited for viewing it based on the number of points it receives. So Paranormal Activity got a 26 out 50 due to "intense frightening scenes" (for those of you who haven't seen it, it's a documentary about a couple whose house becomes the dwelling place of a demon, which later possesses the girl who then kills her boyfriend)

So basically, their TCE (Total Content Evaluation) lists things like this: on a scale of 1-50: 1-8 = kids movie, 10-14 = probably more suited for teens (PG or PG-13), 15-20 more of an adult's movie (like the Dark Knight), 21-27 recommended for ages 17 and up (Braveheart for example), 28 + would probably warrant an Unrated or XXX symbol (or even just X as it used to be a couple decades ago). And while I was viewing the TCE for Parnormal Activity, I noticed one that ranked pretty high on the TCE, I saw it was named Cannibal Holocaust. At first I thought maybe it was a joke, but then I looked into it and found that movie on IMDB with it's own TCE and it apparently made it into 50 out of 50 (really that bad).

Judging from the content advisory, I'd say it probably does deserve a 50/50. Mainly what I was wondering: have any of you ever heard of (or even seen :uhm:) this particular movie?

Paranormal Activity, huh? Nope, I never heard of it until now, much less seen it. Judging by the official trailer, it doesn't seem really scary to me. I guess I'm, to quote Danny Glover in Lethal Weapon, "too old for this shit". Pardon my language. =p

Nope, haven't seen that one either. Same as above, it doesn't seem much to me.

I assume you're talking about the trailer. The movie itself is much worse. Apparently, it was bad enough to get itself banned in many different countries.

Bad in what way? I find it hard to believe that movie got banned for being bad in the sense of having a low quality (like, boring, poor acting, etc.). Movies usually get banned if they are deemed unfit to be viewed by the audience which depends from country to country.

It was banned for being too obscene, dark, macabre, etc.

I think i'm going to watch the movie... it's always fun to see people get mutilated and devoured in movies while eating a sack of snacks or fast food :P
