In the year 1988, a young Katie and Kristi live with their mother, Julie, and her boyfriend, Dennis. Kristi, the younger sister of Katie, plays with an imaginary friend named Toby. Dennis, a wedding videographer, decides to install self made cameras in their spooky new home while Katie jokes around with a Bloody Mary game with Randy, a friend of Dennis. It had a few surprising moments especially the babysitter, the bathroom scene and deformed face of Katie. Paranormal Activity 3 was definitely better than the dull 2nd installment, but doesn't bring anything fresh on the table despite the sincere performances of the kids.

The film's the same, but it still will be good for a few jumps and tense moments. The story established in the first two films continues in this prequel to the hugely successful franchise. By now you can pretty much sense when something is going to jump out at you and make you jump. To be honest, I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first two, as the story is getting pretty out there, but there were some good moments that surprised me. Unfortunately, the adults in this franchise just get dumber in each movie. Still good for a watch though.

Paranormal Activity 3 is exactly the same as #1 and #2, which is to say, often very effective. There are some inventive scares in the film, bolstered by the lack of music and realistic camera angles. Unfortunately, the film is hung on a thin and already overdone premise. I think this 3rd film is appropriate in that it wraps up the trilogy and answers unfinished questions about the story arc, but it hardly breaks new ground - both for horror films in general and for the genre. You get the sense that the filmmakers are sleepwalking through the motions because they know people will pay money to see the finished product, but, despite this, the film still is pretty scary.

Same formula, but with a handful more jolts. I felt the scares were more surprising than scary. It has some memorable moments and is slightly faster paced than the previous two. It also adds a little to the mythology, while leaving us with a WTF?! open ending (which is kind of aggravating).
