3 is a prequel to 1 and 2. Saw it a few days ago was pretty decent. Although most people would disagree xD

Mike when you watch them don't think Hollywood movie think hi def home movie and you may be surprised how you'll take it. Most importantly think Indie film not Hollywood template.

I was actually a fan of the first and second one... and rest assure that there will be a 4th because we still dont know what happened with Katie and the Baby...


    The 3rd one was junk, it was full of holes and very inconsistant with the story line.

Seems reasonable. Once they are all on DVD I'll marathon it. Thanks!

I grabbed a cam version of PA 3 off a torrent site a couple of nights ago. It's ok...I still like number one better.

Was genuinely creeped out and intrigued by 1 and 2. 3 was somewhat disappointed; I was hoping for an entire explanation, and it offered a small glimpse of one, but it was disappointed and in reality didn't explain much. Shame, because I did enjoy the first two.

I think 4 will answer all the questions left to us.

I've only seen the first Paranormal Activity movie so far, so I can only comment on that one. My biggest complaint by far with this movie was it's story. Specifically, the lack thereof. It seemed like they either tried really hard to BS a backstory then gave up, or just didn't care to begin with. Now, I would have been fine if the film never had had any trace of a plot, and would have accepted it as an excellent example of a well-done empty thrill-fest, but then the filmmakers started to explore the character's pasts and reveal vague elements of a backstory... In the end, it did nothing but to make the audience ask questions the film never intended to answer. The film was a plot-tease.

That being said, I enjoyed watching the movie. It kept me in suspense all throughout, and I was right with the rest of the theatre, in laughter during the light, funny parts, and in fright when the scares came up.

I hope PA 2 and 3 learned from the mistakes of the first and improved upon it's good points.

The only Paranormal Activity film that I liked was the original cut. The theatrical cut was absolutely awful, the second was hilariously bad so it had that going for it, but I'm not even going to bother with the third.

Excuse me, you're standing on my neck.

I finally got round to watching Paranormal Activity last night and I didn't enjoy it in the slightest. Which I'm pretty sad about as I'd heard good things! So, question: Is it worth me checking out the 2nd if I didn't like the first?
