While no means a perfect horror film, PA3, will easily satisfy fans of the first two movies in the franchise, and will, quite possibly, bring even more new converts, like me, into the fold. It's breezy, smart, tense, and is sure to raise the hairs on the nape of your neck. A definitive thrill-ride that should be investigated by any lover of horror films.
Much like the Saw series, the existence of Paranormal Activity 3 is nothing more than a money grab. There’s not much that can be done with the story to keep it original enough to be satisfying, but Joost and Schulman manage to toss in enough clever scares and a decidedly creepy plot point to keep the series fresh and frightening. It’s not a perfect movie, but it’s damn entertaining.
