It's a flimsy and transparent story that doesn't hold up to even the most shallow of examinations.

By showing us more of the ghost's activity the film loses some of its mysterious appeal

It's an ending that suggests another film is possible, although I think it's time for this franchise to pull the plug. It's clearly taken the found-footage gimmick as far as possible.

For the love of God, I hope you don't see the next Paranormal Activity...Jesus, my head.

A cataclysmic abomination of a film, forever tarnishing the reputation of one of the better horror movies of the past decade.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

Confounds the continuity of previous entries (according to the series' Internet fan base) and adds few new scares...

... the third time, alas, is not the charm.

Sorry...ghosts dropping spoons just don't scare me anymore.

It preys on our fear of the unknown. As soon as that 'unknown' is revealed by the end, you can't help but feel kind of insulted. Is that all there is? The answer, unfortunately, is yes.

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

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

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

A fresh competitor for the title of "most-boring-horror-movie-ever," "Paranormal Activity 3" is a student film gone wrong.
October 24, 2011
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.
