The third installment of the horror franchise, Paranormal Activity 3 is a prequel of the first two movies, looking at how the, well, paranormal activity surrounding their family began.
Katie Featherston, Molly Ephraim and Brian Boland return to their roles as the older Katie, Ali Rey and Daniel Rey, respectively, roles Featherston played in both prior movies and Ephraim and Boland introduced in Paranormal Activity 2.
Rated R, the spooky third film, told via security camera footage and home movies, got mixed reviews from critics and audiences, but that didn’t stop Paranormal Activity 3 from racking up $103 million when it was in theaters.

So, Paranormal Activity 3 ended up making $52.5 million in its first three days domestically and just shy of $80 million worldwide. The film was the most expensive of the first three to produce, costing a measly $5 million. Paranormal Activity 4 will obviously be made, but what are the story possibilities? To answer that, we have to explore what we already know. Last night I sat down and watched Paranormal Activity and Paranormal Activity 2 to beef up my knowledge and re-familiarize myself with the material. I hadn't seen either film since seeing them one time in the theater and I didn't want to make any assumptions with the facts. So, let's take a look back. Note: I think it goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway, this article essentially spoils all three Paranormal Activity movies. If you don't want to know what happens in any of them, stop reading now... Paranormal Activity »
