No, "Paranormal Activity" is not based on a true story.
However, director Oren Peli told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that moving to a home in San Diego inspired the film.
"I never lived in a single detached family home," he said, so he was conscious of every noise at night, particularly of the house settling and items slipping from shelves. That led to thinking how a video camera might document the source of the sounds, which led to the movie.
He credits "This Is Spinal Tap" and "The Blair Witch Project" as influencing a movie that purports to be true, but isn't.
Additional input from WikiAnswers contributors:
In addition, do you really believe that an invisible so-called "demon" could really drag an adult like Katie (if that even is her real name)? I bet they put strings on her ankles or attached her to a bunch cables. Plus, it says "Thanks to this police station for this video." I have seen way too many movies that say that.
My point is, it is NOT true. Do not believe one second of it; this will just waste your time staying up at night afraid the "demon" is going to haunt YOU.
I did not find this out until after doing some research of my own because of suspicion... I have watched scenes and trailers of the movie and it is almost identical to that of the 2009 movie "Paranormal Entity." Note the bathroom scenes and the "rape" by an unknown force.
Another oddity: The name "Maron" in "Paranormal Entity" was the woman in the movie "The Entity's" last name.

yes paranormal activity and paranormal actitvity2 are both based on true story's. The only way i know that is because at the end of the movie or the beginning of the me (before it even starts) it has an FBI warning On that warning it says how you cant copy this movie and how it is based on a true story and FBI warnings can't lie. I hope i answered your question.

I believe you may be referring to the movie that depicts the death of Samantha Finley? If this is the case, you have actually watched the 2009 movie "Paranormal Entity" which some unscrupulous individual had tried to rename "Paranormal Activity 2" to cash in on the success of the original movie. Paranormal Activity 2 is the new fictional story from the original makers.
There is no actual footage. All of the Paranormal Activity movies are completely fictional.
Because it is part of the movie's hype, to make people think it is a true story. Paranormal Activity is a work of fiction.
