This is the third installment of the Paranormal Activity franchise. By now, you are both an avid fan and follower of Paranormal Activity or you have never even bothered. This is really a movie for those who already watched 1 and 2 and are keen on the horror series.
Paranormal Activity 3 still uses the found footage tactic used in 1 and 2, and inspired from The Blair Witch Project. What makes this movie different from the first two is that it is actually a prequel to 1 &2; the movie is set twenty three years ago, in 1988 and shows Kristi and Katie as children. From the first two movies, there is some reference on the “bad things” that happened to the two sisters when they were kids. This movie shows what these “bad things” were.
It is 1988. The sisters’ mother Julie is dating Dennis, her live-in boyfriend, who happens to be a videographer. As with all children in horror movies, Kristi can see ghosts and forges a friendship with an invisible friend she calls Toby. Right around the time Toby appears in Kristi’s life, strange and unexplainable things start to happen around the house. Filled with curiosity, (which always kills the cat) the Videographer in Dennis comes alive and he sets up three cameras at night to capture the mysterious nightly on-goings at the house. This is the signature of the paranormal activity franchise: cameras that show strange, eerie and creepy things that make you go “Aaaaargh!” The movie then proceeds to show an unexpected twist of events revolving around the women in the family.
To its credit, part three is actually much more hair-raisingly scary than the first two installments and will have you jumping out of your seat. Perhaps having the movie set back in time adds to the creepiness of it all. The two children also show real acting potential and do not come off as your typical plastic-acting horror movie kids. Anybody who enjoyed the first two will definitely enjoy part three; it is definitely not for the faint-hearted!
