Paranormal Activity 3

Yes it’s that time of year again folks – No not Christmas – Halloween.
Which, of course, means that all the spooky and horror film franchises will be releasing this year’s chillers to get you into the cinema.

The newest of these is the spooky Paranormal Activity series – well when i say spooky that depends on your point of view, some might say “daft”, “silly” “stupid” etc etc.
Paranormal Activity 3 takes us back in time to when the mother in Paranormal Activity 1 was a young girl and what happened to her and the rest of the family.
Just like in the first movie not a lot happens in the first 20 – 30 minutes of the film as the suspense slowly builds up.
The film is also shown through a series of video tape evidence filmed back in the 80’s.
There are a lot more jumpy bits in this film and a lot more happens than in either the first or second ones.
The people’s reactions in the cinema were a mixture of laughter and screams as the film transgressed into the more “spookier” bits.
It’s on a general par with the first film, so therefore a lot better than Paranormal 2 but there are several times that you think “ would you really pick up the video camera to then go investigate the noises you heard”

One thing I did notice however is that the main scene they use for the trailer ( the two girls in the bathroom mirror ) is not in the film, which is a little disappointing but i’ve noticed quite a number of movie trailer scenes recently that are then not in the movies they advertise.
Isn’t this classed as false advertising ?
So, anyway if you enjoyed the first film but thought the second one was “pants” then you should like this one but don’t expect a great deal and then you won’t be disappointed.
