Today, we are reviewing Paranormal Activity 3, the third installment in the Paranormal Activity series.
While most horror sequels (and sequels in general) seem to be worse then the originals, this film is an exception. Honestly, I have never understood all the hype surrounding the first film - sure, the first was good, but it didn't have me jumping out of my seat and laughing at how scared I was as many times as I had hoped it would.
Paranormal Activity 3 is a haunted house thrill ride delight, and the film manages to still be outstanding without using the creepy, cheesy background music that most horror films are plagued with. With exceptional acting, and tons of thrills and jolts, the film is undeniably the best in the series, and some would even go as far as to say that it's the best horror film of the year.
However, we are dissapointed that the film did not include several of the scenes that appeared in the trailer in the film. This includes pretty much the entire first 40 seconds of the original trailer. What was really dissapointing - the Bloody Mary scene between the 2 girls in the trailer that made up about half of the trailer for the 3rd film didn't even appear in the film. So really, about 5 seconds of the footage from the trailer actually appeared in the film.
Overall rating: 7/10
