Paranormal Activity is quickly going to become a “Saw” type series if they don’t slow down on the sequels. I can’t say I expected much from this movie, and it delivered even less.
Paranormal Activity 3 follows the same family who have been haunted by this demon in all of the movies (though this time, the demon is known as “Toby”. Aww). While Paranormal Activity and Paranormal Activity 2 were during the same time period, this movie is set in the past (1988) when the girls were small. Without spoiling anything, basically it’s another paranormal activity type movie – someone sets up a video camera and catches the demon as things get worse and worse in their home.
You can probably picture how it ends, and you can definitely live without seeing it!
Ok, I have quite a few questions about this movie:
1. Anyone else have no idea what the little girl “agreed to” to get Toby to stop hurting her sister? Because someone had to explain it to me, and that kind of defeats the purpose. Even though I’ve seen the other two movies, apparently she was agreeing to give him her first born son? Anyone else have other views on this?
2. WHY did the cult-leader grandma kill her own daughter? What the hell was happening with that?
3. WHYYYY does no one in these movies ever think that someone might be telling the truth!? Just watch the video footage, dear god!
4. At the end of the movie, why was the little girl like “cool, Toby let’s be friends again” after her mother and “acting” father were killed?! She was terrified in the closet about five minutes before she accepted him back into her life!!
5.Wasn’t the childhood home supposed to burn down…? Are they saving that for Paranormal Activity 4?!
The best part of the movie for me was totally situational – some guy walked into our theatre, and didn’t immediately realize he was in the wrong one. He was looking around for his friends, when someone in front of us whispered “…Toby?” and everyone in the audience laughed.
You know the movie isn’t good if your favorite part isn’t even related to the film.
