Fresh: Joost and Schulman sustain a consistent sense of dread, playing with our own fears of things that go bump in the night.
- Adam Graham, Detroit News, Friday, October 21, 2011
Rotten: Two movies later, even die-hard supporters are going to find all this stuff dully familiar.
- Alonso Duralde, TheWrap, Thursday, October 20, 2011
Rotten: It ... brings fake-out jolts and humor into play.

"Yes, I saw another one. I don't have much choice in seeing these films. I blame my ten year old niece. She loves them and I promised to watch them with her. But I wasn't as annoyed with this one as I have been with the previous movies. I think it's because their was more happening in this one. I didn't get as bored. Plus they raised the creepy factor with the kids. I still don't care for these films, but I thought this one was watchable."

I rewatched this the other night, and this is the review I wrote last October, still feel the same way for the most part. But I will say this movie holds up very good for a second viewing. While not my favorite horror movie series, the "Paranormal Activity"movies have been pretty decent. Number 3 is basically the same as the first two, with a couple little twists and turns, and a different type of ending. There are lots of door shutting on there own, things going bump in the night, and good jolting scares. Who knew that a fan that blows side to side could be so scary? But what sets this apart from the first to, is the was the suspense builds. I'd credit that with the directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman. They created a movie called "Catfish" that came out last year. That movie really doesn't go anywhere and is a different type of movie, but it's suspenseful as hell. These guys really know how to build tension with a movie, especially with no budget. The final 10/15 minutes of the movie are very good and well done. I miss having a new "Saw" movie this Halloween, but you can do a lot worse than "Paranormal Activity 3". I'm sure this time next year I'll be reviewing number 4.

No surprises here. This movie sucked. It's just the same old drivel. You get to watch people sleep or sit around doing nothing. Sooner or later a door will slam really loudly, then it'll wake me up for a few minutes before the next loud noise. I guess the director's plans to spice things up this time, was a "spine-tingling" game of "Bloody Mary". Which last I checked, was only mildly creepy back when I was six. This film is the epitome of a brain-dead garbage, that represents everything that I hate about horror movies. If you like the first two, you suck. If you didn't, avoid this excrement too.
