If it lacks the original's novelty value and sheer sense of surprise, it makes up for it with creative filmmaking, likeable (for once) characters, a healthy dash of humor and a couple of great scares.

The flick improves upon the second films' problems, but doesn't live up to the fresh vibe of the original. I still jumped out of my seat and screamed like a little girl!

A taut horror ride with enough thrills, chills and gotcha moments to keep audiences asking for more.(Movie Review for Parents also available)

I'm back in.

Directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman didn't invent the Paranormal Activity formula, but they sure do spice it up!

Series creator Oren Peli and his conscripts have managed to do it again, but you have to wonder how far they can continue to push this found-footage angle.

Shows that if coming up with new magic tricks isn't an option, performing the old tricks with flair will suffice. For a while, anyway.

The best recommendation I can make is that after seeing this one, I'm interested in seeing the other two.

For sheer knee-jerk scares, Paranormal Activity 3 won't have any serious competition all year.
October 20, 2011
One-ups both of the previous films in quality and quantity of its scares.
October 20, 2011
This third Paranormal is a prequel that occasionally goes off the rails but also offers more laughs and somewhat more character development than the previous installments.
October 20, 2011
Far and away the sharpest, most wildly aware film in the series.
October 20, 2011
Exceedingly familiar and yet maddeningly effective.
October 20, 2011
the fear feels very real
October 20, 2011
The prequel still has some decent ideas and a couple of jolts, but it also repeats creeps from the first two films, lowers itself to using cheap scares and uses the camera POV at times when no sane person would cover his face with a viewfinder.
October 20, 2011
It's remarkable the films haven't collapsed into witless repetition. But Paranormal Activity 3 actually is a scary movie.
October 20, 2011
If you hated the first two or loathe found footage films in general this won't change your mind but PA3 is a solid, mostly entertaining supernatural thriller.
October 20, 2011
The big-money scares definitely pay their way, but so too do the many smaller, subtler janglings of the nerves.
October 20, 2011
"Paranormal Activity 3'' has no interest in art. It just wants to give you the willies with a minimum of gore and a maximum of camcorder dread, and it succeeds.
October 20, 2011
This third outing in the faux documentary/found footage, supernatural shocker series finally gets things right.
