The latest installment isn't quite as terrifying as the second, but it's still extremely creepy and engrossing and everything you'd want in a 21st-century nightmare maker.

I just spent the whole movie covering my eyes, opening them right before what I knew was going to happen happened ... and then shutting them again and curling up. These movies, man. They get me every time.

Sustaining horror is what the Paranormal Activity movies are all about and in that sense, part 3 doesn't disappoint.

McClatchy-Tribune News Service

A couple of hair-raising moments, a couple of legitimate jolts and some funny cheap ones.

Cinema Crazed

Drips with tension, horror, and building suspense that explodes in to a mind blowing finale that you'll not soon forget.

Paranormal Activity 3 doesn't reinvent the series' wheel but it definitely refines an already effective format.

There really just aren't any scares to be had here. Even people who normally find themselves scared at the smallest "boo" will find themselves drifting off less than halfway through the film.

Paranormal Activity 3 delivers, and does it without gore or "look at me!" special effects.

In the moments that count, those silent wolf-hour compositions of gathering dread, the franchise has earned a place of pride in horror history.

Delivers the clean, simple jolts and scares the series is known for.

Delves far more into the mythology of the series, which may render the picture less scary to some, but there's still enough thrills and chills to keep most audiences thoroughly freaked.

For me, it was a matter of diminishing returns on a product that wasn't very good to begin with.

PopMatters

You don't go to horror movies for story. You go for sensation, to be moved. Paranormal Activity 3 not only gets that, it also asks you to get it, to be aware of how you're being moved, and your part in the moving.

Yes, it feels familiar, but they keep finding a way to make me nervous/scared.

given the increasing familiarity (some might say "exhaustion") of these aesthetic devices, it is almost unavoidable that Paranormal Activity 3 will feel like a slight letdown

Brian Gibson
Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

The tension is slowly bled out, the metacommentary on movies' phantom power is eerie, and the directors capture a creepiness in the sleepy, after-hour spaces of home.

"Paranormal Activity 3" the best in the bunch. If you are ready for a scare and maybe a sleepless night check out this edition and be prepared for some unanswered questions and a few new answers!

Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)

Visible for miles, the predictable turn of the VHS tape undermines a movie that's already weak in scariness.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

It's everything you expect -- bad writing, bad acting, bad direction, dull characters and long stretches of boredom punctuated by sudden jolts.

The Paranormal Activity saga continues in a prequel that covers much of the same ground as its predecessors...
