Looking back, I kind of don’t like Paranormal Activity 2 anymore. It was a fun movie when it came out that sort of mimicked all of the events of Oren Peli’s first film. After seeing Paranormal Activity 3, opening in theaters this Thursday at midnight, it’s sort of changed my perspective, specifically because the third installment does so much more to expand the mythology and scares.
“Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman inject the mythology with life, jam-packing it with heart-exploding scares…’PA3′ is what the sequel should have been – a mythological launch pad loaded with scares, tension, and more importantly, payoffs…Not since ‘The Ring’ remake, or the first ‘PA’, has a film been so brooding and unnerving.”
