question of the day: What do you think of the alternate ending of ‘Paranormal Activity’?

[no spoilers in this post, but expect them in comments]

Genuine, Oren Peli-created alternate endings for Paranormal Activity have been floating around the Internet for months, but with the release of the Region 1 DVD a couple of weeks ago, one of those alternates has gotten the stamp of “official” alternate: it’s the only bonus material to speak of on the disc. (The film is still playing in British cinemas; it’ll be released on Region 2 DVD on March 22.)

What do you think of that official alternate ending?
If you haven’t seen it, there’s a not-very-good YouTube of it… but be warned that the title of the video spoils how it ends.

There’s another official alternate that isn’t on the DVD, which you can watch at Disclose.tv (no spoilers on that page).

For a description of both of these endings, plus one other that Peli did not shoot, see EW’s Popwatch.

Feel free to discuss any or all of them.

I prefer the alternate ending on the DVD: it’s a lot more powerful, and a lot more shocking.
