Paranormal Activity 3 Reviews
August 26, 2015
A few surprisingly effective set pieces that earn some legitimate scares, regardless of how familiar it's all starting to feel.

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.

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.

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.
January 27, 2012
It's another low-budget, high-concept excursions into shock horror filmmaking that once again uses the audience's imagination against them to produce a wild flurry of shrieks and scares.

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.
November 11, 2011
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!

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

Continues the broken/mixed family dynamic of the previous two films, but the characters here are more sharply drawn and more sympathetic.

Paranormal Activity 3 continues the spooky thrills in its exploration of a secular family haunted by evil.
