Slapping viewers in the face with spine tingling, brain mesmerizing and sheer terror, Paranormal Activity is back and with a vengeance in the third installment of the Paranormal Activity franchise. The third movie is called: Paranormal Activity 3 and it was released to audiences in 2011. The film was based on the characters that were created by Oren Peli and it was written by Christopher B. Landon. Paranormal activity 3 was directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman. In addition, this movie wouldn't be the spine tingling film without the talented actors and actresses who brought life and horror into the film: Lauren Bittner, Chris Smith, Chloe Csengery, Jessica Tyler Brawn and Katie Featherson.
Paranormal activity is the type of film that creeps into the mind of the viewers and change the way that they think for the rest of their lives-this film is one of the scariest films of the decade. This movie is great for people looking for a scare because it delivers non stop action and heart-stopping frights. The plot of the flick is about two sisters, Katie and Kristi who begin to experience paranormal activity in their home.
The film starts of showing Katie on her way to drop of a stack of old video tapes to her older, pregnant sister Kristi in the year of 2005. She leaves the tapes and then she goes back home, but fast forward a couple of year latter and it turns out that the tapes are missing; who took them, no one knows.
The film mostly takes place in 1988 when the two sisters shared a home with mother, Julie and her live in boyfriend, Denis. Young Katie appears to have adapted a little imaginary best friend, who she says is called Toby. But, Denis begins to see that weird things have been happening since Toby is around. Denis just shrugs it off and decides to wait it out, but as the film progresses scarier and weirder things begin to happen such as mysterious earthquakes that come and go but other people don't feel, weird shadows and human presences felt in the house and of course, the weird imaginary friends. Paranormal activity is rated PG 13 and is not intended for the squeamish.
Get ready for some sleepless nights because "Paranormal Activity" is back with it's third installment. You know what that means: shaky "found" footage, creepy chills and sudden screams. The people who put together these trailers certainly know what they're doing because even though it's 100 degrees outside today, the new teaser left me fighting off goosebumps. The original indie critical and commercial hit movie, shot on a shoe-string budget in filmmaker Oren Peli's house, went on to take in nearly $108 million in the US alone.
The "Paranormal Activity" franchise has already enjoyed a great deal of success, but if it hopes to continue to do so, it will need some help to keep things fresh, and keep things seeming real. Enter Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman. The duo directed the documentary (or was it?) "Catfish," which became a surprising hit when it came out last year. "Catfish" was successful for a couple of reasons: one, it had a good marketing campaign, and two, the events that occurred in the movie were so outrageous that the authenticity of the documentary were brought into question.
