This trailer for Paranormal Activity 3 reveals some scares

Sep. 28, 2011by: Niki Stephens

Wow. This new trailer for PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 3 reveals a lot. So much so that I don't even think you should watch it unless you aren't planning to see the movie. Well, why am I posting it then? Because curiosity killed the cat, that's why.

To me, this looks way more appealing than the first two films even though I've spent most of my time making fun of it. I'm also interested in it since Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman (CATFISH) helmed the film.

I'm going to let you watch it now. Remember, there are pretty revealing SPOILERS.

Yes, SPOILERS.

I loved the first two movies and will definitely check this one out. I actually find them pretty effective and creepy.

Good Reviews from FantasticFest

They had a surprise showing at FantasticFest and all the reviews so far, including Variety, have been good to really good. Looking forward to seeing for myself in a few weeks.

What an amazing camcorder!!!

How did this family afford an HD camera in 1988? This movie looks fucking terrible.

meh

I did laugh when the doctor guy was thrown about.. but then again it seems pretty much everyone is being thrown about in this trailer. Part of what made PA1 so surprising was the build up and how sparingly shocking moment like Katie being dragged out of the bed happened. PA2, coz its a sequel, upped the ante on this a little with a few more such scares. This looks to be going crazy with it all, and perhaps gone will be the suspense of wondering where this @sshole demon is and when and how he's

That was kinda cool

I'll be honest i love these movies, and they actually frighten me. why? because like a few i have had strange occurences happen like that nothing huge like cupboards all slamming, or dogs being killed but even just small stuff kinda creep me out. doors opening for no reason, stuff not being where i left it, my stereo turning on by itself. ghosts, or spectres are one of my highest fears and the semi realistic, non show way of PA tends to dig into that fear. some are not frightenened thats fine,

Why? If you don't like them, don't watch them. No one is forcing you. Why does it bother you if they make more? Just don't go. I have no interest in seeing a Tyler Perry movie but don't whine about making more of them.

How far can they go back?

I mean, it's another prequel. Maybe for the fourth or fifth movie it will be their grandparents and it will be filmed like a 1920s/1930s silent film. That would be bad ass!

Eh

I am really unsure about this. The first movie worked for me because of the amount of time they used building on suspense and exploiting the fact that I have an over active imagination, as do others.. This one looks like it is heavy on cheap jump scares that will get gradually less and less effective/scary.

Just as I expected

All jump scares, no suspense.

How much suspence can you muster in a less than 2 minute trailer? have you not seen the previous 2 movies? Some of the best suspence horror has had in some years. What a ridiculous statement.

There was zero suspense in either PA movie. It was just nothing but silence and then a loud jump scare. Nothing more, nothing less.

I'm calling BS. You haven't seen either. As kick ass said these movies are all suspense. Slow build up of bass, some scenes where you expect something to happen but then nothing. Day by day the spirit would manifest itself more and more. The slow walking up the stairs at the end of the first one was one of the best examples of suspense I've ever seen. Enough with the hate on these movies.

Nope, I've definitely seen both of them. Caught the first one on blu-ray and saw the second one in theaters. Both of them were poor excuses for horror films, in my opinion.

I think these flicks are spooky fun in their minimalist way. I'll see it.

Oh Wow...

I'm not gonna lie. The Paranormal Activity films creep me out. The super realistic quality of these films is what makes them so appealing to me.

The first 2 scared the hell out of me for the same reason, but this one doesn't look realistic at all.

That trailer didn't reveal much of anything except that this film will probably be as lame as the first two, and even that was pretty much already a given.

Meh. It would probably be only slightly more entertaining. The first Piranha was only a little better than the first two PAs.

Looks Good!

This looks much better then the 2nd one (which I thought was terrible), even though I enjoyed the 1st one.

They do show a lot in this trailer but I'll still be checking it out.

And openhand24, I personally thought The Fourth Kind was garbage but everyone's entitled to like what they want without getting 'shit on'.
