Interest in the Paranormal is at an all time high. Is it harmless fascination…or something more sinister at work?

Paranormal follows best-selling, self-made novelist Greg Evans struggling through the worst case of writer’s block in his award-winning career. In a desperate search for inspiration, Greg quickly finds himself immersed in a world he is not prepared to face.

Turning to a group of Paranormal investigators, Greg and the ghost hunting team search for proof and answers, yet are unaware they are about to have an experience of a lifetime! None will leave the way they came. Paranormal will peel back the supernatural curtain to reveal how the truth will expose the darkness!

5 Stars- Jason T
My name is Jason and I am a team leader with the Paranormal Investigation Team named S.P.L.A.T. (the Southwestern Pennsylvania League Of Apparition Technologists) in PA. I just wanted to let you all know that I just watched a Pre-release screener of the movie "Paranormal" and it is great! "Paranormal" is everything the movie "Paranormal Activity" was lacking. The film included more scares than that one at the end of "Paranormal Activity" while at the same time incorporating a terrific story and heart. The film was well researched while staying accessible to the average viewer. It brings to light how dangerous the field of paranormal research can be if not approached with a very strong faith in God and all Christian teachings. So if anyone viewing this page is interested in investigating the paranormal, just curious in the paranormal, or are already a seasoned veteran in the field, make sure to check out "PARANORMAL". And then share it with a friend...with the lights off!

I received my copy of 'Paranormal"in the mail after less than a week of hopefull anticipation ,I was hopeful that finally the christan media would address the "pop paranormal'...I was pleased with the information that I could glean form this movie..and I do agree with the most of what I found there...but the presentation was almost juvenile .I guess I was hoping I could find a movie that I would not have a problem giving to the leader of my local paranormal research group...and this ain't it....if you want to show some amount of truth to your 14 year old...this may work...but make sure you fallow up with more info .....I hope that the christian media will try again...may be target adults this time

Very slow-moving in the beginning. Not a fan of this movie.

Review from Acclaimed writer, Thomas Smith, author of "Something Stirs"

Paranormal works on a number of levels. As a supernatural suspense movie the story is engaging, the characters are believable, and the atmosphere is as much a character at times as the people on the screen. From a theological perspective the movie makes a number of very valid points, but does so in the context of the story as opposed to some films where it seems the theological portion is either so heavy handed that it overpowers the rest of the movie, or seems tacked on in an effort to make the film "Christian."

There's none of that here.

The pacing is effective, the action believable, and the tone of the movie will stand up against anything the major studios can do with their multimillion dollar budgets. In's scary!

As an author in the same genre and an ordained minister, I cannot recommend this movie highly enough. I can recommend, however, that you invest in a nightlight before you watch it.

We just finished watching "Paranormal", and all I can say is WOW!!! I thought it was better than the secular movies "paranormal activity,2 & 3".

This movie went the distance and not only showed how dangerous it can be to dabble in the paranormal, but how JESUS CHRIST is the undeafed champ over all things. How satan is a defeated foe,and that Christ is victor now and forever.

A really wonderful, Biblically based movie. We loved it!!
