not as good (or bad should i say!!!) Repeat cycle. And for some reason making a good movie with events and likeable characters who don't act like morons is bad?

But if you wanna see good found-footage horror movie, then save your money and skip this. It had amazing camera angles, and scares that will haunt me to this day. And the story actually goes somewhere with a beginning, middle, and end.

If you've been on the fence, this one may not change your mind. As for future followups, I offer this plea: STOP! The movie is scary. The formula for the films involves pallid characters, perfunctory dialogue and very long waits for something to happen. Entertainment Weekly Owen Gleiberman. In this movie, it's just too fake. and A.S. for transforming the PA3 series into something different; which isn't always bad. So I went to see the movie and it was complete "BS"! I have no idea. My over all thoughts are that it sucked and me or any one besides ariel schulman could make a better movie. Usually I scare very easily. Save yourself the time and money. However, the plot is almost exactly the same as the previous ones, so don't expect any surprises. Aunque la verdad es que ya a la serie se le estan viendo las costuras y espero que esta sea por lo menos la penultima. VERY VERY OVERRATED. There was yet another abrupt ending that made no sense. It's a Must-see if you want a good scare. The action in this movie isn't near as thrilling and unexpected as in it's predecessors. Even with these complaints, Paranormal Activity 3 is far better than any of the Saw films and 99 percent of all the other so-called horror flicks.

This one takes place in 1988 and shows "how the activity began", as started by the poster. A good movie is made and my expectations are met! The last film actually answered some questions and then. It's a creepy roller coaster ride of anxious turns and things that go bump in the night. Don't get me wrong I'm not complaining. Otra vez, como la anterior, no ofrece nada nuevo, una precuela poco interesante y que de verdad no da absolutamente nada de miedo, ni siquiera los screamers son buenos, se puede decir que cada película tiene los mismos elementos (los mismos sustos, las mismas muertes y los mismos finales) pero con una historia poco original (una historia que tiene alguna relación con la trama original pero que al final sigue siendo poco interesante y aburrida) que supera por muy poca diferencia a su segunda parte, pero sigue ofreciendo lo mismo y no es para nada entretenida. Anyway, Paranormal Activity 3 is hobbled both by its status as a prequel (which makes the last reel quite confusing) and by its strangely lighthearted tone. NOT GOOD, Paranormal Activity 3 is somewhat bit of a letdown but the last fifteen minutes of the film actually did leave me shaking. Mostly decent jumpscares and camera work. The movie has a lot of unescessary scary scenes (which are not scary at all). The Paranormal Activity series has taken the low-tech "bump in the night" approach and made it work for three films.

Much like the previous two films this movie is no different as it gradually builds up the terror and suspense as it progresses. Paranormal Activity 3 is a 2011 American supernatural horror film, directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman. There are two significant problems with this approach here: the "first person" through-the-viewfinder perspective, in addition to being employed in ridiculous situations, has grown tired (this time, no attempt is made to "trick" viewers into believing they're seeing lost footage), and the narrative has transcended the point where its absurdities are easily ignored. I saw this movie with my friend oppening weekend, i'm a big fan of the PA movies and love all of them, this one on the other hand was the best of the 3.

Another particularly memorable moment was when two of the characters play Bloody Mary, and it's probably one of the best moments in the series.
