Paranormal Activity 3 (2011)

“Paranormal Activity 3” is a 2011 supernatural horror film directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman. It serves as a prequel to the previous two films in the series and explores the origin of the supernatural events that plagued the family.

The film is set in 1988 and follows the two sisters, Katie and Kristi, when they were children. Their mother, Julie, has just remarried and their stepfather, Dennis, is a videographer who has rigged the house with cameras in an attempt to capture evidence of the supernatural occurrences that have been happening. As the days pass, the activity becomes more intense, and Dennis and Julie realize that they may be dealing with something much more sinister than they had anticipated.

Like the previous films, “Paranormal Activity 3” uses the found footage technique, with the majority of the film being shot through the various cameras set up around the house. The film builds tension through subtle scares and atmospheric dread, rather than relying on jump scares or graphic violence.

“Paranormal Activity 3” was a commercial success, grossing over $200 million worldwide. It received mixed reviews from critics, with some praising the film’s scares and others criticizing the formulaic nature of the franchise. However, the film was generally considered to be an improvement over the previous installment and helped to solidify the series as a modern horror franchise.
