Films are of many kinds. Rather than discussing the good, the bad, the formalistic, or the realistic classifications of cinema, I plan to talk about a certain category of film considered on the basis of viewership. There are some movies that you can only watch alone, and there are others that can be made more enjoyable when viewed with a group. Such films are mostly exciting, fast paced, and fall into the action, comedy, or horror genres. A ‘party film’ is one that can be seen and enjoyed with a whole bunch of people, usually at the end of a celebration when the wildness has been sedated and the gang decides to take a break by plopping on the couch and letting the screen take up the task of entertainment for a while. What are the best films to see during a party, though? Well, we’re here to help take care of that complication here, with our list containing some of the top party flicks ever made!
15. Paranormal Activity (2009)
I fondly recall the first time I saw ‘Paranormal Activity’. It was with a couple of friends a little late after midnight. By the time the film had ended, we were all closely huddled and scared out of our wits. ‘Paranormal Activity’ has that sort of an effect on you. Though I will not deny the impact it has on the viewer when seen all alone, the experience is quite different and unique when seen in a crowd. The surreal environment of the picture alienates the filmgoer to the point of utter seclusion, at least in the mind, and so it’s comforting to have the extra shoulders to clutch onto.
