Paranormal Activity 3 opened this weekend. In the past three days the movie has already raked in close to $80 million, $54 million being in the United States.
For me it was a much anticipated movie as I am big fan of the franchise. You can read my review of Paranormal Activity 1 here. I could never really muster any courage to write about part 2.
Part 3 of the Paranormal Activity movie series was great. It is a prequel, so you may want to see the first two movies to make the connection. The child actresses have done a great job in this movie.
If you want to be scared, this movie scares you. I liked the narrative and acting in this movie but I was also able to appreciate the direction of the movie. They (the production crew) have developed a formula and it works. It really works!
- They build up slowly and pinnacle to a great end.
- Silence works. Deafening silence in the still of the night definitely keeps the audience engaged. Small thud, big thud, low flutter, silence, more silence, nothing..it all gets to you!
