    Review rate : A- 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 [ ]
  • 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
