Review: Paranormal Activity 3 (2011)

I am such a fan of the first and second part of this series and was looking forward to watching this one. I thought both of its predecessors were quite good especially the first one so I’m expecting a whole lot from this film.

The film takes place in 1988 showing the young Katie (Katie Featherson) and her sister Kristi (Sprague Grayden) when the haunting started that ruined their life in the future. Kristi befriended a mysterious entity named Toby and strange things started happening in their household since Kristi’s “friend” appeared.

The film wasn’t that scary during its first half; obviously leading us to believe that it would just be like that but halfway through the film, the “good” scenes were up to scare the socks out of the audience. I wasn’t particularly scared but rather startled that made my heart beat abnormal.

I thought the scariest part was the “Bloody Mary” scene. It was just a wee-inducing scene (sorry for the term folks!) and it gives me chills just thinking about it. If you think that you’ve seen everything about this scene on its trailer, you gotta watch the film itself and watched closely during this scene.

I won’t say that it was better than the other two but it was definitely a worthy film to watch especially if you’ve seen the first two. You don’t want to miss the last part of the film for it would tell you something about this haunted family. If this would really be the last part of the Paranormal series, I’d say they did a good job ending it this way.

Rating: 7.5/10
