I think it is definitely worth watching over this weekend or, at the very latest, these first couple of weeks solely because I think it is quite exciting to have a lively theater. Paranormal Activity 3 was, for all intents and purposes, about paranormal activity. I would return to the title, would I not? The movie, this time around, focused a lot on “what goes bump in the [middle of] the night” as opposed to, say, a more developed plot. If you’re looking for a pretty good scare, especially it being Halloween season, then this just might be the movie for you.
However, there are a couple of things I would like to address. Spoiler alert! Firstly, there are a handful of scenes shown in trailers that did not appear in the movie. This does not necessarily make the movie any less better. Secondly, as I mentioned earlier, there lacks a plot. Yes, it delves deeper into the histories of the original storyline. However, much of what happened here can be assumed from the prior two movies. Maybe it’s my general interest in processes. Nonetheless, I am still looking for the Paranormal Activity that completes this so-call “pact” that is lightly spoken about throughout all of the movies. Lastly, the last 15 minutes of the movie will not scar you, but I can say it is rather graphic, with emphasis on the “rather.” The movie will have you, for sure, discussing the entire series, making connections and finding disconnections.
Overall, I would suggest Paranormal Activity 3. It produces a lot more interesting paranormal activities as opposed to the prior two movies combined. That, and the intensity of the suspense as well as the pop-up scenes are to die for! Oh, and if you did not understand the image in this post, it plays on Lady Gaga’s song “Bloody Mary.” Laugh a little! The movie can be quite funny.
