Review of Paranormal Activity 3

Updated on November 8, 2011

Paranormal Activity 3 is the next installment of the super creepy Paranormal Activity ‘fakeumentary’ frenzy. Paranormal Activity, the low-budget movie that started the hype, was about Katie and her boyfriend, Micah, being terrorized by some kind of demon. The sequel, Paranormal Activity 2, ventures into Kristi’s house, Katie’s sister, and the same type of supernatural events occur, endangering the lives of Kristi, her husband, and their two children. Paranormal Activity 3 jumps back in time to 1988 where the viewers see Kristi and Katie as little girls, and learn how this entire demon mess started.

Like the two films that came before, Paranormal Activity 3 starts with small, strange occurrences that just somehow get caught on tape, and slowly but surely get more intense, and definitely more terrifying. If there is one thing that should be learned from these movies, it’s that demons do not like to be videotaped. As the demonizing gets more extreme, the main cameraman, who in Paranormal Activity 3 is Katie and Kristi’s mother’s boyfriend, becomes increasingly eager to catch the happenings on tape. Even in 1988, where the cameras are enormous and very heavy (they are apparently still easy to run around with while a demon is chasing you), catching everything on videotape seemed to be common.

Paranormal Activity 3 isn’t all shocks and scares; in fact there are quite a few comical scenes with Dennis (the boyfriend) and his good cameraman friend, who has a bit of a potty mouth.

The real showstoppers in Paranormal Activity 3, however, are the two young children, Katie and Kristi. Kristi, the younger of the two, and her imaginary friend, Toby, have many conversations that are definitely out of the ordinary and hair raising- especially when they occur at 2 in the morning, raising little Kristi out of her bed.

With all of the hype about Paranormal Activity 3, both bad and good, my final word is that it might make you jump, possibly squeal, maybe even prevent you from breathing at some anxiety-filled scenes, but one things for sure, it most definitely will keep you on the edge of your seat.
