    Paranormal Activity 3

    Didn't see a thread about this. If there already is one feel free to delete this I suppose.

    Anyways, went and saw the advanced screening that phoenix was hosting for free last night. It was a pretty incredible movie (by my standards), and was also the best of the three. Did anyone else go see it, or is anyone going to when it comes out this weekend? I would highly suggest seeing this one in theaters.

    So yeah, discuss!

    For that matter, should I bother with the 2nd movie? I liked the first one but wasn't amazed by it, and skipped the 2nd one due to just never getting around to seeing it. Could I watch this one without missing anything? The commercial said something along the lines of "see how it all began" so I'm assuming they're just going to keep making movies that take place before the previous ones.

    2nd > 1st, scare-factor was much lower though. Gonna go see the 3rd just because it guarantees me some action.

    If you watched the first, you should at least watch the second. It's much more intense.

    Gf refuses to see any of them. I wanna see it but we often house and babysit for a relative that's incredibly isolated so I prob wont be seeing it.

    I liked the second way more then the first, but i dont know if thats because I saw the second first and then the first. I'm hoping the 3rd is just as enjoyable as the second movie, cause I loved the hell out of it.

    Went and saw it tonight. Midnight premier. Unfortunately I wasn't able to hear any of the dialogue because for SOME REASON it is ABSOLUTELY necessary to OBNOXIOUSLY laugh after a "scare" (jump) scene. Just my luck for most of the important dialogue to follow after most of the scare scenes.

    Was a lot of 'cool kids' (the ones(redneck fucking retarded) who yell out loud during the showing to be hurdur) in my theatre.

    I'll have to wait for the DVD to have a full view of the movie.

    I can say that most of the "scary" parts didn't make me jump but there were A LOT of creepy parts. The creepy parts actually gave me shivers throughout my whole body. I separate the "scary" and the creepy parts because the "scary" parts are generally the stereotypical "BOO!" scenes that are just so blatantly obvious it hurts.


    Spoiler: show

    HUGE cliffhanger at the end. big enough to ruin the movie, seriously.

    Not to argue, but how in the heck is there a cliff hanger at the end? It seemed to wrap up the whole story fairly well.

    But then again I saw it on Tuesday night, and after a bit of reading online (looking for reviews) I saw something about how the movie I saw may have been an "unfinished" version. Bleh.

    I will watch this at home because it's way more scary to watch in bed in the dark. I liked both of the previous films. Both seriously scared me because there are parts of the films that have happened to me personally.

    I just don't see how it was a cliff hanger...

    Spoiler: show
    What part seems unsolved? The girls are taken by their grandma, the ritual or whatever is completed. The girls are brainwashed by said grandmother and the "demon" doesn't return to their life until one of the women is ready to give offspring to a boy. The first boy in the blood line is what the demon wants to take in trade for... something, whatever that cult was about or whatever. That's my take on the story anyways, it seems very complete in my eyes. I will be super disappointed if they make a fourth. I would really like to see more movies that have this kind of cinematic feel but as far as this story goes I hope it's over.

    Based on what happened in the trailer, im kinda disappointed.

    There was a lot of stuff in the trailers that wasn't in the movie.

    Creepy ending though.

    why was kristi like "cmon tobi" at the end after he killed the boyfriend? I don't see where the brainwashing came into play. In the 2nd one they talk about not being able to remember anything when they were little. Just the fact that they were scared all the time. "All the time" maybe I'm looking too far into it but the 3rd one took place over a course of what? 2weeks max? At the end of the 3rd one the boyfriend days and the two little girls are like nothing happened at all when only 2 or 3 scenes ago they were scared shitless. I feel like the demon practically pushed the family out of their house and to their gmaw's. Simply because after kristi asked to go to gmaw's the mom said no and then the scene where everything falls from the ceiling happens which ultimately forces the mom to say okay lets gtfo.

    I don't feel like what exactly happens at that gmaw's house was fully explained and I feel like there's much more to the story than we've seen.

    watching gsl atm can't go into more atm

    the only problem is if they do make a fourth one they will break the chain the series has been running where each movie is a prequel to the next. if they make a 4th one it would have to be about the gmaw in the cult or whatever which would just be stupid since there's no cameras back then etc etc and if they go on to further and make a sequel to the prequel it just breaks the tradition the series has been following.

    i personally don't see a 4th one but i am completely unsatisfied with everything. what's the importance of the picture that was in 2nd in 1st that they took in the 3rd? etc just so many things left unexplained.


    I just wanna say the scene where katie runs into 'tobi' while playing upstairs was definitely the biggest ohshit moment in the movie.

    They did that in the second one too. There was a scene in the trailer where she was getting thrown around the kitchen and you didn't see in the movie.

    saw this smacked with a bunch of black people
    fun ride, actually enjoyed it more than the first though it felt short
    got a nice noroi vibe, especially when shit started getting real at the end.
    can't wait to watch an unrated version so i can try and catcy all the shit towards the end

So when I saw those things in the movies, it really freaked me out. I'm at the point where I can't watch the new trailer without getting goosebumps.
