Paranormal Activity 3 Reviews

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.

Aside from the fan-cam, 3 has little to offer: the camera is shakier and 2's ludicrous backstory is continued.

Paranormal Activity 3 rarely feels like a "new" film, opting instead to frame old tricks in a new setting.

What Culture

Paranormal Activity 3, which parts audiences once again with their cash while refusing to move the series' mythology forward, will frustrate those expecting any sort of continuation from the last film, despite some decent scares.

It's a little more effective than its immediate predecessor, but its rehash of the same techniques indicates a franchise whose creativity is quickly being exhausted.

"Paranormal" reveals itself for what it has become, the "Saw" of found video thrillers.

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

If I'd wanted to spend so much time watching people sleeping, I could have been a train conductor, flight attendant or nurse in a different life.

Inexplicably, there are people who still haven't had enough of these movies. The first was a nifty novelty. Now the appeal has worn threadbare.

If the goal is to generate howls of both laughter and terror, Paranormal Activity 3 falls short. It's too by-the-numbers.

Two movies later, even die-hard supporters are going to find all this stuff dully familiar.

When the most innovative thing about the film is that the camera now oscillates, one can't help but scoff at the miniscule amount of creativity that has been drizzled into this Halloween cash grab.

The activity is pretty normal in Paranormal Activity 3, at least relative to its predecessors.

There are only so many times bodies can be dragged out of frame and tables levitated before the biggest scare of all is the threat of tedium.

Sadly, the time machine treatment does nothing to reenergize the formula, with this latest ghostly rampage practically a shot-for-shot remake of the previous pictures.

Not since [Halloween] has a horror franchise managed to squander all of its early potential in quite as few steps.

The shtick movie "Paranormal Activity 3" is the horror equivalent of vaudeville comedy: a little patter, a little pie in the face, repeat.

A fresh competitor for the title of "most-boring-horror-movie-ever," "Paranormal Activity 3" is a student film gone wrong.
