    i think people are hungry for a good movie..this year has sucked movie wise...a good movie would attract a lot of people regardless of the subject...i assume you are referring to the movie "paranormal activity" i can think of other times the interest in the supernatural was much higher...one needs to separate the supernatural from the occult to look at things however

    Reality is too scarey-----easy to freak out about something abstract and vague.

    All religion is supernatural and the occult.

    None of it is real. It's all just made up.

    People are spiritual beings as well as physical. They are searching for something to explain the spiritual feelings they have. Hollywood rejects G*d outright, hence the poor imitations of things beyond our control. Read the book of Enoch if you want a mind-blower.
