but i HATE the people who go to these movies and laugh as loud as they can during a "scary" scene...either because they were scared and want to overcompensate by showing how not scared they were, or because they don't get into the movie and want to show other people how stupid they think the film is. if this sounds like you, please...shut up and let others experience the movie without you ruining it.

Not that these are insanely scary, but I saw the first one in the theater and any tension was filled with morons overcompensating to say "i aint scared i aint scared" type shit. This makes most horror films hard to watch in a theater, but especially these Paranormal ones because there's no musical sound track to drown em out.

yeah they have a few good jumps/scares in them but the movies as a whole don't add up to an enjoyable experience...and like Capone said it doesn't hold up to repeated viewings...PA2 never should have continued the story, instead they should have made it a standalone movie...the whole sisters being possessed story was lame and felt like they ripped off the video game F.E.A.R or was another attempt at The Ring

Are you serious?? This is the pathetic attempt to create a viral campaign, by having fans decide which 20 cities it will premiere in??? I'm really glad PA has taken away the October market from saw...but not THAT glad.

I don't want to support shitty handheld horror films. It is my hope and dream that Paranormal Activity 3 will tank and put an end to this dog shit franchise that just makes me want to vomit my gizzards out. I paid to see the first two movies in this franchise and i feel it is my responsibility to make a living amends for my error by pushing a heavy boycott on this film and dedicating my time to bash the living he'll out of this franchise. Amen.

But I did notice that in Southern California, audiences are MUCH louder and much more aggressively attention-seeking. It is just constant. That and talking on the phone, texting/tweeting, getting up and down, conversing with each other at normal levels instead of even attempting to quiet it down a little. I've seen people try to make it a race thing, but that's bullshit. It's more of a cultural thing. Plenty of white people, Mexicans doing it. In Northern California, (not the bay area) it's not as bad. By a huge amount. There have been a few Friday/Saturday night exceptions for certain types of films, but it's really not as bad here. These films, for me, are hugely entertaining to watch at home actually. Pretty scary in a dark room, alone. They build mood cleverly and deliver on the scares and VERY creepy, chill-inducing moments.The subtleties are the best. That one thing in the corner, in the shadows, that you almost miss. That thing that shouldn't be there, or is just slightly off, or wrong in some way. I love that stuff. I can see it getting old though if they don't find something new to do with it.

having said all that, I really do want more real, R rated horror again.

I was rather bored after the 1st one...Don't care about it anymore.... But by all means if that sissy shit scared you frolic away

That's what eats shit. All this trouble to possess and enter our world- then just kill 2 people. Could have gone on a norwegian killing spree in the husband's body alone. Stupid fuckin demon

There are true artists out there that can't get their foot in a door yet this trash gets made repeatedly. FUCK THAT!

The Paranormal franchise has obviously replaced the SAW franchise and we can now expect yearly sequels for the better part of the next decade... *GROAN*...

All race things are actually culture things.

but doesn't it seem kind of weird that they've gone a totally different route with the 'demon' or whatever? In the first one they made it seem like some horned hellbeast, and now it's apparently just a dark shadowy person standing in doors (Bloody Mary?). Weird.

So yeah when I went to see this it was only playing in like 20 cities, this was back when they where trying to gauge if they wanted a wide release. Needless to say that ALL the people in the theater we went and saw it at ALL wanted to be scared,there was no talking, no laughing. It was literally the perfect horror movie experience I have ever had. That first movie gave me that feeling I haven't felt since I was a kid and discovered scary movies,I am glad I got to see this with like minded people and didn't have it ruined by fratboys and g-bangers ( the following weekend that is what happened, I guess word of mouth does that...but that last 20mins even the most vocal asshat was sitting in silence and the shit hit the fan) I am sure I will see this in the theater but I KNOW it is going to be ruined by the aformentioned asshats.I almost do want to wait till it goes to Blu-ray and watch it at home where I can scare myself.

How many people video tape themselves sleeping. Alone. How many times will an ajar door be "scary" because of the deep bass rumbling sound alone? Stop. Two was enough. Really.
