Dan O'Neill90 - Paranormal Activity 3 is basically the same film as every single other one that came before it, with a lot more insane scares, questions brought up, and more tension than ever before thanks to the new directors on-hand.

Bryan Lienesch83 - As far as the franchise go, PA3 is equal parts creative reinvention and same old ish. Though, to be honest, the third installment reinstills a palpable creepiness level.
