Paranormal Activity 3


Paranormal Activity Three was first screened in theatres in 2011 and is a ghostlike horror film. This is number three of the Paranormal Activity series and aids as a prequel, which is set 18 years earlier to the occurrences of the previous two movies. It was first screened in theatres in October 21, 2011 and exceeded financial records, and set a record for a 12am opening horror movie ($8 million), as well as the best first day for a ghostlike movie in the US ($26.2 million), the grandest total first day for any movie in October, and finally the highest grand initial start for a paranormal movie in the Autumn (September-October), and set a record start of ($52.65 million). Paranormal Activity three is actually a prequel to Paranormal Activity 1 and 2 plot lines. Instead of advancing the narrative beyond the events of the prior films, the 3rd installment concentrates on Katie and Kristi as children, when they first encounter the paranormal presence that later defines and terrorizes their adult lives. At the time of the film, the family consists of Dennis, a wedding videographer, his wife, Julie, and her two preteen daughters from her previous marriage.

The film begins in 2005, when Katie takes a container of prerecorded videotapes and other goods to her sister, Kristi and her husband. Approximately a year down the line, Kristis house is stripped and the only thing missing is the box of videotapes, which were inherited from their grandmother. The film then jumps back to the past of September 1988, to when Katie and Kristi were young girls living with their mother and her current boyfriend, Dennis. Kristi starts talking to an invisible person, whom she refers to as Toby. Dennis begins to notice that ever since the arrival of Toby, peculiar things have begun happening in their house. In order to investigate the bizarre occurrences, Dennis places video cameras around the house in an attempt to make sense of what is happening. He later notices a bizarre sign in the girls room and through examination he is able to associate the symbol to a form of demonology. When Dennis attempts to explain to Julie what he suspects is happening, she instantaneously dismisses his claims. Katie and Kristi continue to be terrorized by the invisible ghost and ask their mother if they could go and stay with their grandmother. Julie refuses until later; she experiences the startling activity herself. Katie, Kristi, Julie and Dennis pack and go to the girls’ grandmother’s house. At grandma Lois’ house is the pivotal part of the film, where frightening activity begins to take shape and begin real. During the night, Julie is killed and Dennis finds a group of old women, including Grandma Lois, wearing black. Dennis runs inside, where he manages to find Kristi and they hide in a cupboard. After they escape from the closet, Dennis encounters Katie who seems to be possessed by a demon. Lois appears and looks at Dennis, whose body seems to bend and snap uncontrollably, eventually killing him. Lois, Katie and Kristi all ascend up the staircase and Kristi calls out to Toby for him to join them. The camera picture then turns static.

The actors and actresses that star in the film include Chris Smith as Dennis, Lauren Bittner as Julie, Chloe Csengery as young Katie and Jessica Tyler Brown as young Kristi, and Hallie Foote as Grandma Lois. The film generated encouraging reviews from critics and in January of this year, Paramount said that there will be a 4th addition. Paranormal Activity Four was recently screened in the UK on October 17, 2012 and in the US this year on 19 October.

This is just another great Paranormal Activity film and it will not disappoint. Paranormal Activity Three will help make sense of Paranormal Activity 1 and 2. Do not miss out on this fantastic film that will keep you on the edge of your seat as you experience the fear that is felt by the entire family.
