What would happen if you moved into a new house and got an unexpected dose of ghostly activity? Would you try to prove the supernatural activity or simply leave? "Paranormal Activity 3" ponders this question and San Francisco viewers are largely pondering the film's ambiguous ending. The movie tells the story of a man obsessed with discovering the cause of paranormal activity afflicting his house after an earthquake. What happens when a ghost hunt actually turns up a ghost?
"It was pretty good. This one wasn't as scary as the first two, but I was still terrified the entire time. The action wasn't as good as it was in the first two films but the panning camera created good suspense. I was surprised it ended when it did. I was expecting more to happen at the end but it just cut off abruptly. I feel like you have to watch the movies in reverse to understand what's happening." -- Nancy Retana, 20
"Overall it was pretty good. I liked that the parts that could have been predictable weren't. It really added to the suspense. I felt like they could have done more with the ending, but just left it. It wasn't as scary as the first movie, but it matched intensity with the second one.There wasn't as much action in this one, but the camera jumping back and forth kept me scared the whole movie." -- Megan Alexander, 20
"This movie scared me pretty good. I was scared for the little kids and the old lady got me. I would hate to have something like that happen to real little kids. I'd say I was more scared for the kids and because of the creepy old ladies at the end than the action in the movie, though. I didn't see the first two so the ending was kind of confusing." -- Adriana Perez, 19
"The movie was good, but the ending threw me off completely. Everything was going good and then they just tried to cram the whole ending into the last 10 minutes. It just came out of nowhere. It was like they just threw all this stuff at you at the end without explaining it. I feel like they were just trying to set up a sequel." -- David Chung, 21
"The camera angles made it more realistic and definitely made it more scary. The scary parts were more surprising because there was no scary music. It was like, whoa a scary part came? Where was the warning? I don't think the movie even needed the music. The shifting camera angles made it really scary. I would probably pay to see this movie again." -- Kelsey Evans, 20
"The ending was pretty rushed, but I feel like it was a good set up for a sequel. Kelsey's right; the movie wouldn't have been as realistic if there would have been music. I would have wondered where the music would have been coming from, or who would just be walking around the house playing music while there was a ghost around? The camera added all the suspense the movie needed." -- Caroline Isabel, 23
"I couldn't believe it was over that early. It felt like they cut out a lot of the good stuff that was in the trailers. The parts of the movie that were supposed to be scary were really scary, but it could have been longer. It was really suspenseful and was a real thriller. The camera point of view really added so many more layers to the suspense. I didn't see the first two, so the ending was really vague, but they could make all the way to 'Paranormal Activity 10' now if they wanted." -- Khyber Hill, 23
