“..trying to offer a quasi-logical explanation for the ghostly goings-on it comes a-cropper..”
by Frank Swietek [One Guy's Opinion]

by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
2 of 4

“..there's not much to the characters, and the final twist doesn’t make much sense in the context of the film..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
3.5 of 5

“..the staging and editing is highly sophisticated and the special effects used sparingly and precisely as the tension ratchets to a surprising ending..”
by Simon Weaving [Screenwize]
Review rate : B-

by Corey Hall [Metro Times]

2.5 of 5

“..it may be that the best way to see this picture is at a latish show in a house packed with a bunch of zonked or slightly tweaked urban teens, which was how this reviewer experienced it..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
Review rate : A-

“..features variations on every one of the tricks I just mentioned, and a few additional ones (they all work), but more than the first two films, it tweaks our desire to put a face on evil..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
“..earns points for its low-key ability to keep viewers primed over long stretches to expect that something very bad, or even worse, may happen at any moment..”
by Joe Leydon [Variety]
“..camera movement gets tedious and repetitive..”
by Wilson Morales [BlackFilm.com]
“..although not exactly breaking any new ground with its by now all too familiar found-footage format, Paranormal Activity 3 hews to the formula in expertly crafted fashion, mustering up the requisite scares and then some..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]
