'Paranormal Activity' Tops Weekly Blockbuster(R) Hit List of 'Top 10 Rented DVDs'

DALLAS // PRNewswire-FirstCall // -- Topping the BLOCKBUSTER® (NYSE: BBI) (NYSE: BBI.B) Hit List of "Top 10 Rented DVD Titles" for the week ending Jan. 3 is "Paranormal Activity." After a young, middle class couple moves into what seems like a typical suburban "starter" tract house, they become increasingly disturbed by a presence that may or may not be demonic but is certainly most active in the middle of the night. "Paranormal Activity," starring Katie Featherston, Micah Sloat, Mark Fredrichs, Amber Armstrong and Ashley Palmer, was directed, written and edited by Oren Peli. This release media includes an alternative ending not seen in theatrical version.
