Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: It ... brings fake-out jolts and humor into play. – Andy Webster, New York Times, Oct 20, 2011

Fresh: This third Paranormal is a prequel that occasionally goes off the rails but also offers more laughs and somewhat more character development than the previous installments. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Oct 20, 2011

Fresh: Far and away the sharpest, most wildly aware film in the series. – Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, Oct 20, 2011

Fresh: "Paranormal Activity 3'' has no interest in art. It just wants to give you the willies with a minimum of gore and a maximum of camcorder dread, and it succeeds. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Oct 20, 2011

Customer Reviews


The movie starts out much like the others in the series, and generates some suspense in parts, however it's large gaps of inactivity and mindless script fill most of the movie. This is not the worst aspect, unfortunately the movie ends with the viewer wondering how on earth did they spend money to see such overhyped tripe!

The Best One Yet!

The first one was great, the second was a little disappointing, and this one tops both of them! Scarier than both of them and reveals a lot about the other two movies. And there are few laughs here and there, but suspense and terror are piled on top! Highly recommended!

Paranormal Activity 3

This movie was awesome. If you have seen the past 2 movies you're probably thinking that this movie will have a terrible plot.Well this movie was the best out of the three.I can understand it because it has more of a plot than the other 2.I was horrified through the whole movie.The ending sucked why would they end it like that.I was scared the night after the movie.
