That about sums it up, nothing scary at all, little normal as far as paranormal either. I read up, saw that a director gave a camera to 2 people, told them make a movie along these lines, and with no script you get Paranormal Activity. Pretty fucking tight for 100% ad-lib, but to trump it up as frightening is just all wrong.
