Paranormal Activity 3

As I was typing this, and this is no lie, a suitcase that I had precariously placed on my washing machine fell down … all by itself! Can you believe that? It made a sudden crashing noise and everything, just like the disturbances the ghosts or demons or whatever they are have caused repeatedly in this series. The suitcase falling in my laundry room was scarier than anything I saw in Paranormal Activity 3. This time out, we journey back to the late ’80s, when the sisters in the first two films, are little ones. The youngest has an imaginary friend who is really a ghost named Toby who likes to play around with her Teddy Ruxpin and knock lamps over. Their stepdad notices some funny bumps in the night, and he’s a wedding videographer, so he sets up his cameras all over the house, just like they did in the first two films. The two little girls are fine, and are the ones primarily responsible for the few scares that work, but formula here has become too obvious. Cinemark 14, Feather River Cinemas and Paradise Cinema 7. Rated R
