was just screened for the midnight showing here in Chicago.

Did anyone else see it?

I loved the first two movies (even though the second was way more 'produced') but this third one felt like the 'director' bent everyone over in the theater and gave them a quick bit of the 'business'.

Thoughts.

Sorry if this has been posted.
Yeah, uh-huh...that's what they all say.

haha. Nah, it really was pure crap. If it's not too late, save your money and skip it.

First one sucked enough that I was never going to watch another one of the series.

I just got back from it. There were a few cheap scares here and there, but they went for more of a disturbing angle. I think it worked pretty well. Not the best movie I've ever seen, but it was definitely worth the money.

EDIT: With this type of movie you have to go in with an open mind. If you're gonna be a cynical douche about it and expect that it's going to be bad, then you're not going to enjoy the experience.

When someone told me about it, my reaction was just, "There's a third one already?"
I think it's time for a change.

I'm not a cynical douche. I loved the first two films, and the first hour of this one. I especially loved how the first two tied in with eachother so well.

Not sure how you got that I went into it 'expecting it to suck'. I was damn excited for it. I went to the midnight showing of it and waited in line for an hour. If you can't tell by that, I typically enjoy this stuff. Especially around Halloween.

Additional note: It didn't bother you that like 90% of the clips from the previews weren't even in the movie?
Yeah, uh-huh...that's what they all say.

First one was great but only coz most people were under the impression that it was actual footage so we were all scared shitlist. After everyone figured out it was produced we all realised we'd been had and yeah it was basically just a very bad horror piolt. The second one was just crap coz we all knew its some really bad acting plus an idiot with a home camera so this third one...lets not even go there!

I want to see the first one, which people actually enjoyed. I saw the second one and couldn't enjoy it as a serious movie.

In saying that Paranormal Activity 2 was incredibly hilarious with its flying babies and it's killer pool cleaners.

That and I imagined the demon as a big burly lumberjack

Anyway, it was crap, I'm also surprised there is a third one and so soon.

Most likely I will not be seeing it

The whole time I was watching it, I couldn't help but think about how great the quality of the guy's camera was for it being 1988.

Holy crap, me too! The first thing I said to my friend next to me was "damn, that's a nice camera for 1988". We both laughed.


To the guy who thought 2 was hilarious....yeah, it's all hilarious if you watch it the right way haha. Two relies a lot on One though, in many ways.


I also would have preferred this to be a sequel or something. Or, what I REALLY wanted, was like Katie and Kristi watching these tapes together. A retrospective thing. Not just an hour and 20 of the tapes and nothing else, with no explanation or title cards.
Yeah, uh-huh...that's what they all say.

I will not watch it as the first one terrified me. I think what got me the most is that in the book about demons there is a picture that is seen of a crazy goat like looking thing that you only glance at for a second andd don't remember the image very well, leaving parts of the demon to your imagination but your just given enough information. then you see something that looks like hoove prints in the babypowder = mind ****ed.

Watch it alone in the dark. Honestly, it'll probably freak you out. Either that or, if you don't scare easy, it'll be hilarious. It's always either one or the other.

My favorite part of the first movie was the 10 minutes of actual suspense. God what a terrible movie, but it had a budget of $15,000 so all the artsy people thought it was great.

OT: I kinda liked No.2, but the idea of it was implausible. As if she (the sister from No.2) didn't tell the other one (From No.1) that the demon was back and was haunting them.
I'll most likely watch No.3, I'm a sucker for these types of horrors.

My problem is that movies are jumping on the 'found footage' wagon so much that it's collapsing. Apollo 13 was just dumb.

I've been a big fan of the first movie since the first time I watched it.

I watched the 3rd movie last Thursday night (for free by the way, being a radio DJ might not pay the best but the perks are the teeeeeeeyits!) and then finally got around to watching the 2nd one tonight.

If you haven't seen the first two movies and want to see the second I HIGHLY recommend you take the time to watch the first two. Personally, there's things in the dialogue that are easy to miss but are paramount to the story. More on that in a minute.

My initial impression of "3", before I had watched the 2nd move was honestly a bit "meh". It just didn't live up to my initial expectations. After watching the second movie however, the 3rd actually grew on me. Why? Because things that seemed a bit "disjointed" actually made sense after watching no. 2.

SPOILER ALERT!!!:

I feel like a lot of people miss some important dialogue in the movies that is important to the series' story as a whole.
In the first movie we see what happens to Katie, the older sister. Come movie 2, we see what's happening right around the same time as the first with Christie, the younger sister, and her newborn son. The third, although I feel like there are some things left out that could possibly be used in a 4th film, explains to some extent the origins of the girls' haunting.
Essentially, the Grandmother that we see in the 3rd movie is the cause for all this, the second movie gives us the hint that she may have made some sort of pact with a Demon/the Devil for her own personal well being in exchange for the family next son. Since there hadn't been a son in the family bloodline for years, the demon wants to collect Hunter, Christie's son. When he fails to possess Christie, he turns to Katie instead to use as a vessel to collect the baby boy, which we see in the endings of both the first and second movie.
Now, one thing I don't understand is this "marriage" that goes on in the 3rd movie. I'd like some more elaboration on this. I figure there will be a fourth and potentially final movie.

In conclusion, I think if they decide to make another movie that they could actually make a pretty killer movie that would tie all the first three together. If it were me, I would take a hint from the "Marble Hornets" fellows and use a "third party" of sorts to narrate/explore in the movies. To me, one of the biggest gaps in the series is the fact that we don't know "who" is presenting or "why" we're watching these homemade videos. If there was a reason laid out for all of this, I think it would benefit the series' plotline. The biggest loose end in the story is where the eff Katie went and what happened to Hunter. Also, it would be nice to have more information about the origin of this thing and the grandmother. I think they have a pretty good series going here, and I think there's the potential here to make an absolutely fantastic 4th movie that is the finale to this whole series.

Plot of all 3 movies is stale and unbelievable. Because if you move into a house that's quite clearly haunted, the first thing you want to do is stay!

It's not the house that was haunted, it was the main character, Katie.

First one was surprisingly good. In a movie genre that's become stale with torture porn being billed as horror (lol?) it was a nice change. Should have been left at that instead of try to milk it for more. But then again if I had made the first one I'd get more money out of it by making more too, so yea.

First two were awful so of course I have to finish the series.

No, I understood the entire plotline just fine. I just thought that the 'true' origins that were revealed in the third one were kind of stupid.
Yeah, uh-huh...that's what they all say.
